Dr C,had a nice easy energy and was easy to talk to and addressed my concerns. If i ever decided i needed therapy and he did private practice he and i could afford him, he would be my choice to continue my journey of mental health and exploration.

Dr. Creighton is absolutely great. He was able to nail down my symptoms and knew exactly what my lower back pain problem was caused from just by the way I was sitting. The guy knows his stuff. It shows. I am scheduled for an injection in my back in about a month and he says with 1-2 injections, he's 98 percent sure that will correct my lower back pain and I won't be hurting. If that's the case, this guy will be my hero. Very knowledge about. Doesn't sugar coat or beat around the bush on things. He's short, sweet and to the point. Very good guy and good doctor so far. Keep it up Dr Creighton!

I would recommend Dr. Creighton to any person that is suffering from chronic pain. He not only manages the pain he offers alternatives to my condition which is severe osteoarthritis of both knees.

Dr. Creighton and staff are very good at their jobs, take a good amount of time with me as a patient and have been able to help me reduce my pain level. Occasionally, the amount of time from appointment scheduled to seeing the doctor runs a little long. However, the care is worth it!

What a wonderful staff!!! Everyone is so nice, helpful and encouraging. If you have to go to a pain management doctor this is where I would recommend. I am thankful I was referred here because they truly want to treat the pain- not just bandage it, and are very helpful in giving steps to do so😊😊

I could not be more pleased with the way Dr. Creighton has treated my peripheral neuropathy. He came highly recommended by Methodist Hospital referral system and he has treated myself with the highest degree of professionalism. I have spook with a number of other patients in the waiting room while waiting for my appointment. They all Love Him. The staff has always treated me with Great respect. I would tell anyone with ongoing pain to have chat with this excellent Pain Dr.

Dr. C was my doctor for a long time. I wrote a previous review about him but had to write another one now that he is gone. Dr. C if you read this, it's Jessica. You know me, lol. Always remember you were the best doctor ever. Whoever is lucky enough to have you as their doctor where your going will see that to. Dr. C was and is one of a kind. Very intelligent and kind. When I saw him he took the time to talk and treated me like a person, not a pay check. It's ashame that we lost a great doctor. You won't be forgotten Dr. Creighton!!!
