We value our patients' experience at American Spine.
Dr. James Lauerman is the reason I am walking and no longer in daily pain. I began seeing him in Jan '15 after daily and horrible back pain from Sept-Dec '14. He was able to finally properly diagnosis my problem, prescribe a solution and after multiple injections and procedures, tests and drugs, I was able to walk, sit, stand and function as a mother and teacher. Dr. James is compassionate, caring, supportive and I am forever grateful to his persistence and intelligence.
Doctor Sial and all the staff and nurses,
Thank you so much for what you've done for me! I had my second RF procedure on my facet joints two weeks ago, and I cannot thank you enough for taking away the steadily increasing pain that has plagued me for 30 years. My pain levels had increased over the past few years to a 9 or a 10, and I was living on narcotic pain killers for the past few months, but now I'm at about a 1 and off all meds!
This is nothing short of a miracle for me, and I just wanted to let you know how appreciative I am. I only wish I could repay your kindness and care.
Dear Doctor Sial,
I am writing this letter later than I wanted to, but I came with my wife back to California just a few days ago, so here are a little late, my words of many thanks to you for helping me tremendously to fight the very painful and unpleasant illness of herniated discs, which started last year in August-the time, I will never forget.......
But fortunately there was Dr. Nguyen, who was nice enough to recommend you as the physician who is able and willing to help me. You helped me tremendously and immediately! The injections with the right medication has been help from heaven. THANK YOU AGAIN!!
And then, before my necessary trip to Europe, you were kind enough to prepare me perfectly for the trip with two long overseas flights. I returned after two months without any problems and ANY PAIN- THANKS AGAIN.
I hope that more people will be so lucky like me, to find you for this big help, I can recommend you to all the people who suffer as bad as I did last year before I got the fantastic help from you. Thank you once more for everything. I am looking forward to seeing you soon for eventual follow ups.
Dear Dr. Sial,
I wanted to take a minute to tell you how much I appreciate the great treatment you have given me!
When I first came to see you I had pain and discomfort almost all the time. I rated my pain level at an average of 7 or 8. Before I learned about you I spent years trying many things to get some relief including chiropractic, injections for pain management, pain medications and physical therapy, but nothing gave me significant improvement. I was losing hope and felt desperate!
After a few months of treatment at your facility, I have realized about 75% improvement. My pain level is now an average of about 2 or 3. I have been able to return to regular workouts at the gym, and can do almost every activity I want, including Scuba Diving.
Your staff has all been very caring and professional, from the front office to the nurses and doctors. Everyone there has always treated me with great kindness and patience, going the extra mile to ease my concerns and make me comfortable.
While I still have some pain, I now am confident the treatment options you present will continue to help me. Thank you very much for getting me back to living life the way I want to live!

Dear Dr Sial,
I've been wanting to send this letter to you for some time now to give my thanks. I know it's all a group effort and I wish to thank all for the outstanding work, but I mostly thank someone whom I think is also deserving of a special thank you.
I wish to thank you for PA Stanley, who I feel has been instrumental in returning my quality of life and assisting me to knock down some of my pain to a tolerable level.
In the past I have had negative results with trigger point treatments. Those failed mostly due to technique given by the physician assistant which has left me with the fear that my lumbar will lock up in pain if I was to receive another (as it has in the past). However, PA Stanley imbued my trust to try one more time his way, and I have to say it really made a difference.
His cervical trigger points provided me relief of the neck pain that radiates to full blown migraines. He recently preformed the trigger point to my Lumbar region as well. The results were immediate in most cases, but positive in all.
Those trigger point procedures combined with your other treatments/medications you have knocked down my pain level to be able to enjoy my hobbies, friends and family again. Please deliver my kudos to PA Stanley for his outstanding work, and please accept my gratitude for all your team has done for me.
To whom it may concern,
Hello, my name is Rebecca Goss. My husband (Tony Goss) is a patient of Dr. Sial's. I wanted to express my appreciation for him and all his help with my husband's medical condition; and to also let you know what a great man and great Doctor your medical group has in Dr. Sial. He is not only very caring, intelligent, and personal with each and every one of his patient's, he also is very aggressive about solving his patient's medical problems. He always comes up with a game plan for treatment that is always in the interest of the patient's. He is our Savior for the Doctor that he is, and for the treatment he gave my husband. Let me brief you on the problem my husband has.
My husband and I first started dating back in January of 2006. He was quite embarrassed about a medical problem he had, and didn't tell me until I saw firsthand how horrible these headaches were and how much pain he was in when they occurred. They were excruciating and the Doctor we were seeing did not know what to do about them. All they did was give him medication and tell him he would have to learn to live with headaches like that for the rest of his life. The only thing that worked to stop his headaches were Imitrex injections, and he would always run out mid-month and had to suffer through them until a new month started because his insurance only covered so many for the month. I watched this happen over and over again until I decided to put an end to his suffering and do some research. There had to be other options to treat this instead of medication and suffering. My husband told me he has been suffering with this for more than 10 years and stopped being aggressive about treating the headaches because he never got anywhere with it. His first headache started the day O.J. Simpson ran from the police.
I Googled pain clinics in our City and found "American Spine". I read up on the clinic and its Doctors and made an appointment and went in and met with Dr Sial. After a couple visits, he talked about a procedure where he cauterizes a nerve that is causing the headaches. The only bad part is that the nerve can grow back. He performed the procedure and his headaches were gone for a whole year. He no longer had to use Imitrex or any other pain medication.
Since then, we changed insurance and we are now with Kaiser. They are very impersonal and urge us to their website to contact our Doctor regarding conditions and prescriptions and almost everything. They are also non-aggressive with treatment and require referrals for everything. We even paid out of our pocket to have the nerve cauterized by Dr. Sial because we couldn't wait a month for Kaiser, and also because we knew that Dr. Sial would achieve the same results from previous procedures. It was worth every penny. Last time Dr. Sial performed the procedure, the headaches stopped for two years. Right now, his headaches are back. He is scheduled for surgery at Kaiser the first week of June because they only do surgery's the first of every month. I hope they can do what Dr. Sial did for my husband. All we can do is hope for the best and hope they get that same nerve. No one can ever duplicate the compassion and care Dr. Sial gave us.
Thank you Dr. Sial and everyone at American Spine. You got my husband and I through a very tough time. Dr. Sial is the only Doctor (out of a dozen others) that cared enough, and still cares above and beyond for us. The only thing I miss about having Blur Cross is Dr. Sial.
A HUGE Thank You again,
Dear Dr. Sial,
Just wanted you to know how truly thankful I am that you were there for me. I was no doubt scared out of my mind and want you to know it was the sound of your kind, caring, and compassionate voice that made all the difference in the world to me. Just seeing you brought me the comfort I needed. I truly believe in Angels here on Earth and I know in my heart you were heaven sent. My very own special Angel to watch over me and not only me but my David too. You've always been there in his best interest. You are truly blessed and with God's gift and we are blessed as well to have you as our Doctor. Enclosed is a small token of our appreciation and a very special thankful. God Bless You. Yours today and everyday with His love and special Angels watching over you. Yours with a grateful heart,
