After seeing Dr. Jeffrey Carlson and getting an epidural shot to relive pain in my neck and shoulders, he set me up for 6 weeks of Physical Therapy with Cody Leeworthy, DPT and Josh Hancock, PTA along with some fantastic assistants. The more I did the exercises, the more relief I get. Everyone set me up for success and I want to thank all of you for the complete professionalism and courtesy I saw on each trip there. The care I have received, from seeing Dr. Carlson, to Dr. Raj Sureja, then over to PT, has been remarkable!!

Diana J. Rondinelli – Shoulder Surgery, Spine Surgeries, Knee Replacements & Pain Management

 

I have seen several doctors at OSC over the years; most recently Dr. Martin Coleman. I was referred to him by Dr. Mark McFarland for shoulder surgery which was successfully completed. Dr. McFarland helped me with back surgeries and knee replacements.  In the past, my mother saw Dr. Raj Sureja and we both felt the same about his services and knowledge.

Each experience with the Doctors at OSC has always worked out well. And any interaction with the staff there has only shown me very caring, informative and knowledgeable people.

I would highly recommend the Doctors at OSC – and in addition their support staff.

Thanks for making my surgeries a whole lot easier and with better results than they might have been.

Jen P – Treatment for Chronic Pain

BEST PAIN MANAGEMENT PHYSICIAN- 5 STARS!

I have suffered with nagging pain issues for 13 years & seen nearly every physician who handles pain from Va. Beach to Richmond. Treatments that I have tried are listed on a page of loose leaf paper, front & back, to include many treatments outside of insurance. I received temporary relief from many, but nothing lasted. Thousand of dollars later and endless hours, I was ready to give up.

I am so thankful to Dr. Raj Sureja for changing my life and quickly. We are blessed to have this competent physician in the area. What makes him different? He is a highly intelligent physician who excels at listening, making an accurate diagnosis, ordering the proper imaging & builds a solid plan for treatment.

Dr. Sureja predicted my diagnosis in under 2 minutes and it was later confirmed through an MRI. He understood me when I told him I’d been through everything, did not want any type of pill, and needed something different. Pain does not always generate from where one feels it. All others wanted to inject where I hurt and I never got any lasting relief.

Dr. Sureja runs on time, is thorough and extremely organized. His office is among the most well run I’ve ever experienced. I have been in the medical field for 2 decades, in addition to being a patient at many practices. When he orders imaging, it’s seen through on the spot. Before you walk out the door, an insurance authorization has been obtained, imaging scheduled & a follow-up appointment made. You don’t get a call weeks later or have to call to see if your paperwork has been lost somehow.
Look no further, he is simply THE BEST!

Deborah Gilliam – 5 Star Review of Dr. Raj Sureja

Image of Dr. Raj SurejaI love OSC and the doctors there.  I see three OSC doctors, but I think I see Dr. Raj Sureja the most.  I have a bad back and Dr. Sureja keeps my pain under control…I wouldn’t go anywhere else.  The staff and Doctors are all top notch and use cutting-edge procedures.  I always know that they have my best interest at heart!

Michelle Georges – 5 Star Review of Dr. Raj Sureja – Interventional Pain Management

Image of Dr. Raj SurejaThe staff at OSC were warm and welcoming. Dr.Raj Sureja and his nurse have a good relationship, marked by humor and respect. I was impressed by the time the doctor took with me and plan of care.

The X-Ray folks had a new machine and were working through it with great teamwork and humor – they had a student with them who was clearly being well trained.

This group took time and despite my “severe” i.e., aging spine issues, I liked that Dr. Raj noted that I do NOT have a back ache, because the pain came on acutely and has hung around for a year, so it might be something other than spine in origin and he is going to help me out.

They all worked as a team, from the reception staff to the physician. This is the hallmark of a successful practice. I was impressed with the whole gang! I didn’t have to wait an hour! Everyone was very friendly.

Image of Dr. Raj SurejaI am very pleased with the service that I receive at OSC. The staff that greets you on the second floor, prior to your procedure, are fantastic, very courteous and professional.  Dr. Raj Sureja and his nurses are also courteous and very professional.  They provide outstanding customer service…and also, procedures that help alleviate my pain.

Andrea Luke – Spinal Cord Stimulation for Pain

Photo of Andrea Luke and Dr. SurejaMy name is Andrea Luke.  I am a mother of two and a registered nurse.  I injured my back at the age of 32 when lifting a patient at work.  I spent many years in pain.

My injury resulted in five spine surgeries, many tests and countless procedures.  My last surgery was a four level fusion that stopped any further deterioration, but left me with chronic pain.  I became unable to work as a nurse.  Everyday tasks were difficult and I missed out on many activities with my children.  In addition to nursing, I loved to ski, mountain bike, hike and scuba dive, all of which I could no longer do.  Medications helped my pain but did not take it away completely. Plus, I never felt like myself when taking the meds.

I found Dr. Raj Sureja and he worked with me to combat my chronic pain.  We tried injections and epidurals, but I did not get sufficient relief.  He suggested a spinal cord stimulator and after a while, I finally agreed.  My neurostimulator was a complete success. I now take no medication whatsoever.  I work full-time as a high-risk Labor and Delivery Nurse in Norfolk and I live a full, active and PAIN FREE life.  Neurostimulation was a complete game changer for me.  Thank you, Dr. Sureja!

Robert Carpenter – Multi-level Lumbar Spine Fusion Surgery

Image of Dr. Jeffrey Carlson in the ORMy initial phase of treatment was for back pain in 2013 with Dr. Mark McFarland. He didn’t jump right in with the knife, but did the best they could with what they had. This year, I saw Dr. Raj Sureja and Monica Beckett – NP,  while I awaited a multi-level fusion with Dr. Jeffrey Carlson.

The care, treatment and overall professionalism of the entire staff was exceptional and exceeded my expectations at every level both pre- and post-op. With social media presence and with both good and bad reviews widely available, I was skeptical. However, I can not say enough good things about the staff. They were very pleasant and concerned and I have seen quite of few members of their entire staff. I would refer my parents, children and others I care about for treatment here, without question.

Dr. Carlson performed my multi-level lumbar fusion and the difference was incredible. Recovery takes time, but ultimately, I could tell he had solved the underlying issues for which I was being treated and had done so with informative care and precision. Excellent faculty, facility and the very best Doctors in my opinion. It was and is very important that I get back to work quickly and their number one concern was restoring my ability to resume as many activities as possible and to live as limitless of a life as possible. To Drs. Carlson, McFarland, Sureja and your staff, you’re excellent providers when I couldn’t say anything but the best regarding your service and care.

Nancy Fernandez – 5 Star Review of Dr. Raj Sureja

Dr. Sureja went the “extra mile” with me, answering questions and addressing and treating a problem that wasn’t even the principal reason for my visit. He struck a wonderful balance of professionalism and personal caring. His medical assistant was wonderful as well.
