What Our Patients Are Saying About Us

Jessica Sombke

THIS would have never been possible with out the AMAZING Dr. Schocket and his INCREDIBLE staff!! Thank you Jessica, Cynthia, Madison, of course Dr. Schocket and everyone else at Capitol Pain for helping me become petty much pain free, after 12 years of excruciating pain. You guys are amazing and I miss you guys so much and hopefully I’ll be making atleast one run down the slopes with Dr. Schocket one day to show him that his hard work, dedication and dealing with my crying and complications have paid off!!!!

Dear Dr. Schocket,
This letter is way over due! I don’t know how to thank you for everything you have done for me. It’s been 4 years and I feel like I have my life back.The treatments you have given me has worked. I don’t recall anyone having interest in my spine. That’s one of the first things that you did is order X-Rays on my spine, hip and ankle. I had no idea I had a fracture on my spine. I thought I had a kidney infection. That is why my back was hurting. Putting me on the Lyrica- Wow you hit the nail on the head. I actually sleep at night. I get up early, exercise, cook, bake I can go on and on. My pain is manageable, the nerves in my foot hardly bother me. Before I started seeing you I stayed in bed day and night, not sleeping, crying. I just want to thank you for giving me my life back after all these years! You have been a blessing! P.S. With intense physical therapy, I can walk on my own! Still need more work, haven’t walked in 4 years!

Big kudos to you and your staff!

Dr. Schocket,
I just wanted to take a few moments to let you know how much I appreciate having you as my pain management physician. I’ve been wanting to tell you of my appreciation for quite some time, and after the relief I feel from the Occipital Nerve Blocks yesterday, I wouldn’t put this off any longer. I understand you are trying to decrease your patient load to concentrate on administrative duties. Just in case it’s another 6 months or so before we meet again, I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Dr Schockett. Expert! PA’s and their assistants are good. The staff is kind and considerate. I like they way they handle business and they are all pretty level headed and wise. I always enjoy seeing David when he takes my blood pressure, a good attitude goes a long way. My experience with them so far has been exceptional.

Thank god I get a little piece of mind and they help me manage my pain in a respectable manner , the staff has been pretty good all around, except one person always gives me a bad time but maybe she will warm up as time goes by.

I have been a patient of Dr. Schocket and Capitol Pain Institute for almost three years now. Before that, I suffered with terrible pain, neuropathy and restless leg syndrome my entire life. Exhausting every recommended medicine available and every general practitioner left me hopeless and tired. After being referred to Dr. Schocket, I was immediately taken in, evaluated and treated. He is a caring doctor and very knowledgeable about a wide-range of medications and treatments. It wasn’t long after my initial appointment with Dr. Schocket that I finally found relief with a combination of effective medication. Each time I visit, I’m treated with the utmost concern. I love CPI so much, that I actually commute from Cypress after we moved because I’m unwilling to give up Dr. Schocket’s expertise and his practice. The only negative thing I could say would be the long wait times, but within the last 6 months, CPI has relaunched their scheduling program and I’ve been in and out each time in 30 minutes or less. CPI is nothing close to being a pill-mill or some kind of junkie pharmacy like some of the other reviews claim. They’ve been crystal clear about the law and what’s allowed and expected of us as patients from Day One. There’s nothing lax, or unprofessional about it. I highly recommend CPI and Dr. Schocket to anyone frustrated with chronic pain!
