"I recently had a debilitating back issue that caused such pain and immobility I had to go to the emergency room because I was in a locked position. My primary physician referred me to Dr. Hari Prabhakar at Tri-City Pain Associates in Round Rock TX. I wasn't sure what to expect because I had never been in so much pain before. After meeting with Dr. Prabhakar and his staff I have been amazed with their "bedside manner" and overall treatment. Dr. Prabhakar fully discussed with me my MRI findings and treatment plan. As my plan included epidural shots, he also walked me through it during the procedure. The doctor and his office were so kind, personable, and supportive. I recently had my follow up visit and had the same experience. They even remembered me when I walked in a month later. That goes a long way for me. I highly recommend Dr. Hari Prabhakar at Tri-City Pain Associates."
