Dr. Cara is the best. I had issues with my back and hip. It has been years since I've been pain free. Thank you again and may God bless you. I'm 76 years old and being pain free really feels great. Thank you and your staff.

I'll always discover a fault! Here it's merely the fact of having to seek "PainMgmt" while my 22 other Drs could just as easily write a script for pain medication! But, gone are the good ole GP's and welcome Specialists for every part of the body you can name.

That's class, That's my Dr Cara whom recently performed my R shoulder procedure via ultrasound & admitted it was worse than he thought! Thus, my pain continues however, it's now better controlled.

I was referred to Dr. Cara by my doctor in Milwaukee, WI for help with pain at L,3,4,5 on both sides. My recommendation is an unqualified superb assessment. Staff are friendly and helpful. Dr Cara give thorough explanations for my condition and the options for solutions. He is an excellent listener who responds to all questions.

required me to see a PA to diagnose, then a future appointment for care. My wonderful Cardiologist, recommended Dr. Cara because he was receiving such amazing comments from other patients. I immediately made an appointment with Dr. Cara, and the rest is now history. YOU SEE HIM! He is quick to locate the problem, and just as quick to resolve it! I would challenge anyone to do a more thorough assessment of the problem, and then apply the treatment. Not to mention, he treats you as if you are his only patient, and IS always immediately on time! No waiting. I cannot describe how excited I am to have found relief, and to have a physician that treats you as if you are his one and only! GO SEE HIM. You will be glad you did! His staff is just as great!
