Nice staff, and knowledgeable MD's. Always friendly, and everybody is so helpful. They always take time to answer my questions and never try to rush me out the door.

These Dr's here really care about their patients and I trust them I really would tell others this is the best Pain Dr's too come to.

They asked all the questions I needed the answers to

Dr Galapatti is a doctor that does all he can to get you the best treatment and resources! The nurses and staff all do a good job! Thanks to all of you!!!

They're very nice and understanding

Good listener and friendly.


I only have one issue and that is being prescribed a medication that actually works and finding out my insurance will not pay without a pre authorization and ark pain centers will not do pre authorizations n e more.

I've been going to ABC for almost 2 years now and I'm very content with the care and quality of service that i have received. Dr. Garlapati is amazing and his knowledge is impeccable.! In grateful for their service that enhances my quality of life. Thank you, Rebecca Zamora

Everyone has always been very sweet to me and very helpful. I appreciate those things because it's hard enough dealing with the pain then having to deal with rude people who don't care as well. these people seem to care. thank you.

Love Dr. Bu tch, he takes good care of me

Pretty good

I love when I see Dr.Butch!! He listen's you then he explain's everything you. He wants to know if you have any questions!!! He always want's to know if the meds are working. I have recommended alot of my friends to this clinic. Most of the employees are friendly.

You all done everything right nice and friendly establishment and care about your patient and listen to what you say Is the problem and do your best to make me feel better thanks for all you do

It is becoming very uncomfortable seeing a different Dr or apn or pa every appointment. I was told that I could request to see the same one but it hasn't happened. I feel that to have continuity of care I need to see the same provider. I do realize that there are times when that can't happen but this year I have been seen by too many.

My visits are always thorough and problems addressed.

The greatest thing about the Arkansas pain center is that you are treated like family. It's nicest Doctor/patient environment I've ever been in .

Always understanding and works with you to find out what works for your pain, very nice and professional

Ive been dealing with back pain and surgery for years Dr butch is by far the best i have dealt with . In a day when health care is so expensive and you have to pick and choose what you deal with it helps to feel like someone is listening .

The dr is needs are all met..

Helped me to get off pain pills and improved my mobility.

I couldn't make it without the pain clinic , there grate DRS There .thank you all everyone are very nice to me , THANKS

It is a professional place, clean, all employees are nice and helpful.

The Dr was very nice and listen to the problems I was having

The service is professional and caring. I couldn't imagine life without the Pain Center.

I always feel welcome.

Timely manner and always receive the appt time and day that I need.

I have been going for some time and really like all the care I received!!!

Usually quick visits, always friendly


It was a good experience. And the staff was helpful.


Great nurses and DR. They treat me like a person

For the most part, every one has treated me with kindness. Dr. Garlapati is the most understanding doctor I have ever been treated by.

I was promptly called.back , Dr in patient room speedily , receive review and I was out in a matter of 30 minutes total ..

Dr A & nurse practicioner are the best!!! They both take the time to talk and work out solutions. Sometimes even spending so much time with me the nurse will come and interrupt and say times up.

Doctor explained things well & answered questions to our satisfaction.

Everyone is kind and friendly. No long waits in waiting room or exam room. You want to help me feel better and function at my best.

Fast service nice people and good advice real helpful folks

Very nice people always

All personal were very nice and helpful. Thank you .

I would recommend AR Pain Center to my family, friends, and a stranger.

Dr. Butch & staff always acts so caring. He asks all kinds of questions concerning my illness. Offering other options for treatment. Staff members are always friendly & helpful.

You have met all my needs with thoughtfulness and understanding making my life morw meaningful and comfortable

Nit a long wait and all the staff was pleasant and helpful .

Very friendly staff. Always willing to spend time talking about any questions I may have and willing to help in any way they can. I would recommend to anyone one who is in pain all the time the way I am.

It was very good I would recommend y'all two anybody

Thank you for being there

Your staff is friendly and the docs, interns and nurses seem to care about what's going on with you.

you are very timely about getting me in the room and being seen. everyone is friendly and helpful

Excellent experience.

Good customer service

Each visit is always good. The only complaint I have is sometimes there is kind of a long wait.


Dr Butch is great always very caring and informing takes time and you never feel rushed

My appointment went well. The staff is nice.

I met with Dr. Butch yesterday. As always he was very nice and helpful with my pain. All the staff at this clinic are very professional and pleasant to deal with. Wait time is always short. I've been a patient here for several years, and I'd highly recommend this clinic to others suffering with chronic pain.

Quickly got to back and was seen fast

Everyone are professionals and treat patients with dignity and respect. I have been a patient of Dr. Garlapati for several years now and would recommend Arkansas Pain Centers to anyone with pain that is controlling their lives. I don't know what I would have done without the help of the staff there.

The staff were all nice and we were treated well.

I have no complaints.all of you have been so great to me so nice to not be in horrible pain everyday thank you

I find that communication is lacking between patient & the Ark Pain Clinic policies. I misunderstood about the time between prescription & date of new prescription. I did not know that there are certain medicines that your personal physician Cannot give you, i.e. Pneumonia. So if u have a major illness, u should have ur doc call the Pain Clinic???? I also don't like getting an injection in the spine without more anathestic. I am trying to learn all of the rules. At this time, I feel that I have improved slightly.

Wait time was great this visit. Sometimes it's a bit long, but I understand. If I am doing good the visit is nice and short, but if I have problems I have never felt rushed. On one visit I didn't ask for more medicine but my pain level had been high for a while, and one of your doctors added another medication. It made a big difference! I can sleep longer and yet I don't feel drugged during the day. I would recommend you to anyone in need of pain management.


I have been seeing Dr. Garlapati for about 5 years now and during this time I have never gotten into the popular notion that the Doctor's staff have always had what is best for my condition at that present time. Anytime I have ever had a question Dr. Butch has always been there to give me at any time. This man knows how to ease my pop

I have been a patient of Dr. Garlapati's for several years. He and his staff are always professional and caring. It's a good combination of traits. I am very thankful that the Doctor found a way to treat my chronic pain. My hat is off to Dr. Garlapati and his staff.

I love the dr. The billing system is horrible. I've talked to some many get different answers. I've asked the manger Sherry to call me at least 4 times. I've left my papers from blue cross three 2 times so we would both have a copy Never had she called. On the last bill it didn't show where I had paid my copay. I called the billing department. The answer we forgot to put it on there. You get one bill you pay it. The next day you get another with a different number. I'm getting 3 different bills from them. Makes no since. The care is great. The billing department is just about to drive me somewhere else My husband goes. He was charged 300.00 for the drug screen his copay is all he had to pay. I was charged close to a 1000.00 plus my copay. I had some injection the bill I got was very high don't have it with me. I called blue cross There answer it was because of the way it was billed.

Dr.Butch is a very good Doctor and knows his pain management.( Hmm Excellent(

Great Doctor to have I have been with y'all sense Dr Valentine was there so I have lots of people that I have sent to y'all.

I have always felt my needs have been met. Every professional has listened to my concerns and addressed other options to pain control besides medication I would and have recommended Arkansas pain centers to others

The experience with Arkansas Pain center was wonderful they have short wait times and friendly staff

Friendly, professional, and caring

Been coming to APC for 10 years or so. We like the staff and DR Butch otherwise we would change DRS. A Ok

I love Dr A!!! She is VERY knowledgeable, friendly, informative and cares about her patients. She takes the time to explain everything and takes the time to answer any and all questions. She is NEVER rushed and she cares about her patients. I'm really very happy with her and I recommend her to all. I believe she is only available for early morning appointments.

It was a simple process and I have experienced relief

Real concern for my pain, friendly service

Everyone is nice every time I go to an appt. all my questions are always answered.

Pain level today still at 1 Feel better today after yesterday

Arkansas pain center seems like a really good place to go and the people there seem to really care about your needs I will recommend people to come here

Crystal is a really awesome Dr and seems to really care about her patients. I was impressed by what she asked about and the suggestions she had about my health. That kind of compassion and care is what I first experienced when coming to APC a long time ago but have not received over the last few years until I first met her. What has happened to the old time love and compassion and care that healthcare was founded on? I believe healthcare needs to reennerate that in their patient care now! Thanks Dr Crystal for giving me that positive experience once again.

Doctor, nurses, office staff treated me with respect. All well helpful in informing me of what they were doing to help with reliving my pain. As well as keeping me relaxed. During Ablassions . Great Doctor and health care team. Thanks everyone.

Everyone is very nice They get you in and out fast My last visit I Don'think the doctor looked at my med list I mean after 3 yrs my hydro codons varies?

Always a good experience at The Psin Clinic. All staff is great and Dr. A is wonderful!

Actually i find you guy's as the most informative Doctors i've had,and you guy's listen to my concerns.You guy's the best by for

The doctors and staff are great people.They are and have really helped me..Would like to thank everyone.

A very pleasant visit. Everyone was nice and treated me well. Thank you all very much. See you in two months.

Great job by all involved!!

I'm satisfied with my treatment. The Dr. Waited on me did and Excellent.. ... I felt so much.. Better. I think.. Dr. Pine.. GREAT Job. Dr. Butch is a Excellent.. GREAT..Dr.

Everyone is always very nice and very professional.

Everyone who works there is very nice and puts your needs first. They get you in on time, never have to wait very long.

Your always very friendly and concerned about how I'm doing and that means a lot to me.thanks for you help

Make it easier to get hold of you about visits.

I have been seeing Dr. Garlapati for several years. He is a very kind and caring doctor. I was lucky to have found him!

I never have a long wait time. All the ladies are friendly, ready to help.

Dr. A. Treated me with respect, and listen to my concerns. She help me where she was able to. I have seen many pain doctors, and most of the time I leave knowing I did not receive the help that I should have received. I have seen Dr. A 3 times in the last six months, and every time I leave feeling like she actually cares about me as one of her patients., and sincerely wants to help alleviate as much pain as is medicaly possible. I am actively recommending others with chronic pain to come and see her.

Happy with the way I get treated there but the people you call or try to get ahold of on the phone could use work. Or trying to get ahold of a nurse is not that good. But I do understand you look after a lot of people.

Always enjoy talking to Dr. Butch. He has greatly helped me through the years.

All the staff are very friendly & profressional!!

Went faster

I love it here everyone is so friendly and that means everything . I can't say enough great things about this pain center

Your staff is friendly and professional. I like coming here, my Doctor always listens to me and discusses things.


The people are very professional and answer all questions

Pain injections seem to be working as dr thought it would. Friendly and good service from nurses. Finally some pain relief !!

Everything. Everyone in this office is courteous and continues to be each visit and that includes everyone on the chiropractic and physical therapy side too. I would definitely recomend Arkansas Pain Center to anyone who is going through anywhere near the pain and suffering I was when I started going there. Thank you Arkansas Pain Center, my quality of life is actually liveable now.

I love my doctor! She is so compassionate and caring. It's also obvious that she is very knowledgeable about her job. I would give give her a 10/10.

Good visit, as always, I'm always treated very good, good Dr.s and nurses, especially Dr. Butch. I would recommend them to anyone.

I have been going to Arkansas Pain Center for years; everyone make me welcome during every visit. I don't have a long wait. I recommend APC to people that need a pain dr. I am thankful to have APC in my life; not all drs go far and beyond to see that their patients are taken care of, the drs, nurses, secretary and staff all work together to make their patients happy and satisfied. Thank You!

I dont understand why the Dr would prescribe me medicine for only 2 months and then switch me back to my old medicine that doesnt work effectively

dr A is wonderful! She even called me last night to check on me! How often does that happen. I appreciated her concern! New patient but all staff have been outstanding.

Everyone is very kind and knowledgeable about there job.Crystal Rainey is a very nice lady,she takes time and listen to what you have to say,she makes you feel like you are someone not just a number,I like that and I'm sure other people do a number from 1 to 10 she's a10 . Most of the people at the pain clinic are very good at there jods. Thank you

I have always been happy with the clinic, the staff and the help that has been provided by the clinic. I have recommended the clinic to others many times, including just today. Thank you for all of your assistance.

Allways seen in timely manner and everyone is polite and seems to care about my well being

Staff very professional,short wait time and the office was clean and warm

Friendly staff, very professional. Always treat me respectfully.

I have been going to the pain center for over 15 or 20 years. They always help me. Or. Try to to help me. I will not trade my pain. Care, for any other. Beatrice Dill

Got me in out promptly and treated me with respect.

Always been treated with the respect and privacy one should expect from a medical facility. The doctors that have treated me have always took time to listen and ask questions about my health and how I am feeling. I am very pleased with the service AND staff of this service.

Great care center. Doctors are extremely knowledgeable and listen intently to your health issues.

Always a pretty good experience with yall. I feel like my needs are met and my doctor listens to me.

I would highly recommend Arkansas pain center to anybody that had pain I'm very pleased I've been seeing you guys for about 10 years excellent doctors thank you for taking care of me

Wonderful visit. Doc going to try new things to get my pain under control and I am excited.

What is YELP? My Dr. Has really taken care of me for the past 6 years. He has carefully managed my medication, along with treatments that allow me to live a more normal live, and I feel dependant, even though I am disabled. It has improved my life, and I am greatful for the quality of care

Arkansas Pain Center has the most friendliest staff including nurses & doctors that I have came across. The doctors actually listen to you unlike any other docs I've seen. I live in Hot Springs and don't mind driving an hour + to get there.

Dr. Butch actually came in the room and talked to me. He was concerned about my foot and what they were going to do. They meaning pc dr. And orthopaedics.

Very great fast and easy in out nurse's and doctor was great yes I already have recommended to friends and fam.

Have always had a good visit!

The staff as well as the doctor there was very nice and friendly. All my questions were answered without hesitation. I was able to get in and out in a nice amount of time.

I would accelarate the process from checking in to actually seeing the Doctor. I was there more than an hour and half before I was able to see the Doctor.

Only been with y'all a few months but so far y'all have been great!! Dr A is a wonderful doctor & easy to talk to. Thank you Doc A!!!! Ps.......all staff are pretty awesome 😁

18 years at Baptist Health as a PTA. 1 year at a nursing home. 1 year at Back and Neck Plus

The staff there are very kind and considerate. I have been treated less than human by more than just one pain doctor. The doctor from Arkansas Pain Center treated me like a person should be treated.

A wonderful experience. Nurse was very helpful and polite. Nurse had a very positive and cheerful attitude.

Had a great experience with Dr. Butchi was very understanding and professional.

Tracye is always so nice and pleasant to be around!! She honestly cares and it shows!! She never misses a stick. Dr Butch is also so very caring and he actually listens to you and how you feel!! I trust them both with my life!!

This is Margie Brown. I did not have a good experience with you all. I was on 4 Norcos a day and yall dropped me down to 2 and left me with my morphine. My Norco was my breakthrough medicine. Not my morphine. Since then I have sat in a dark room with a migraine, they took my demoral away completely which was for my migraines. I haven't left my room at all. I can barley eat nor sleep. I'm gonna end up going to my pcp to continue my clonapins, because I'm dealing with deaths and issues with family. I couldn't even attend my great nephews first birthday party because of all of this. I cannot stop taking those, they help me cope with my problems. I was with Dr.  Umerah but now I am with Dr. Adeogba. I think I did very well on all my medicine how it was before it was changed.

Everyone was very nice. The office was clean. The staff was very knowledgeable.

I really like Dr A. She was friendly and helpful with the stretches. She spent time talking to me instead of pushing me through just to get to another patient.

Everyone at Arkansas Pain Center was nice, professional, and very courteous. The wait time was very short and the Dr was very through with his examination.

Nice clean and professional clinic with nurses and doctors that strive to assist you the best way possible and get you the help that you need.

I loved my resent appointment at your clinic.Your staff and Doctors are great and very understanding and so professional. I will send all of my friends to your clinic.
