Dr. Ocasio is the best!

He always takes the time to respond to all my questions in detail. He is an unusually available doctor. He pays attention to his patients. He listens and he does his best to find solutions for my chronic pain issues.
Even though it is pain that brought me to be his patient, it is a pleasure to see him and work with him and his staff.

– Phyllis Silverman


Everyone is so nice and professional there!

The front desk is welcoming and responsive, and Dr. Ocasio spends a lot of time examining you (most thorough pain mgmt/neurological exam I ever had) and he really explains and shows you on his iPad Pro, in layman’s terms, what the problem is and what can be done. I never feel rushed and he actually personally followed up with a phone call shortly after my last visit regarding a recommendation for a neurological exam. Highly recommend him.

It is easy to see that Dr Ocasio really cares about helping his patients.

I went to see Dr. Ocasio to get a fresh set of eyes on my CRPS because it stopped responding to the treatment my previous Dr. was pursuing. I am extremely glad I did. Not only did Dr. Ocasio give me the most thorough exam I’ve had in years, he offered me treatment options which I hadn’t been offered before. He made no promises that they would be more effective than what I had been trying (which anyone with this condition knows it is important to be realistic about), but he assured me he would be in my corner fighting no matter what.

It is easy to see that Dr Ocasio really cares about helping his patients. He listened closely to what I said and made sure to ask me what it was that I wanted to get most out of treatment. I have no hesitation recommending him to anyone looking for a pain management physician.
