I have been going to the Tennessee Valley pain clinic for two years. I have had two back surgeries before coming to them without having good results. Amy and Dr. Scherlis worked with me to find the root cause of my pain and therefore adjusted my medications and give me jections so that I may live a fuller life. With their help and concern my pain is manageable. I would highly recommend them to anyone who has pain that is controlling their lives. E. C. Marshall

I have been a patient with Tennessee Valley Pain Consultants for well over 10 years. When I first started going there I was at my wits end. I was unable to work anymore and had even been told I had spine cancer. Thank God I didn’t. Dr Scherlis set me up with injections in my back and we started on some meds and I am so much farther than I could ever imagine. Thanks Dr Scherlis,Amy and all the nurses and staff. Ya’ll are the best! CL

I have been a patient of Dr. Scherlis for several years. He is an excellent doctor, and is always concerned if the procedures are working. Michelle is always pleasant and works diligently with Dr. Scherlis in managing the right balance of my medications that will be most effective. They are highly professional, but yet has a compassionate touch. I highly recommend Dr. Scherlis and Michelle for meeting your pain management needs. JLB

I am a patient with Dr. Sherlis, and see Michelle, a Nurse Practitioner, every month. I have been Dr Scherlis' patient for several years, and have seen Michelle for the past 1-2 years, and find it difficult to find the words expressing my gratitude and appreciation for the improvement they have made in my life. My pain is addressed directly at each visit, yet I am alway treated with the greatest respect - that is a rare combination, and greatly appreciated.

I have been a patient of Dr. Gantt for many years. He is a wonderful physician and person. His Nurse Practitioner Christy has absolutely been a positive influence in my life due to chronic pain due to a failed spinal fusion surgery. I've seen her for over 3 years now. She has been a champion of the opioid epidemic and helping me manage my pain. She was such a positive influence in cutting my opioid medications down while also helping me come off other medications that I was on at the time. Now my pain level is down to the lowest it has ever been. The medication she has me on has no effect of euphoria ( a high ), no withdrawls or other side effects. This has made a dramatic improvement in my life. Never did I think I would be free from the pain medications I was on and there many side effects. Thank you so much Dr. Gant and Nurse Practitioner Christy for improving my condition and my life.

This is one of the most compassionate practices in my considerable medical experience. The nurses for Dr. Sherlis (Julie) and Greg Gore are experienced, compassionate, professional, and dedicated to your care. While there are significant roadblocks they have to deal with (DEA regulations, etc.), they will do all they can to care for you!

Dr. Sherlis has an awesome bedside manner, is an absolute wizard in fixing what ails you, and is very caring!!

I have been seeing Dr. Scherlis and my Nurse Practitioner Michelle for a few years. They, along with the staff have always treated me as if I were the only patient they had to help. Their excellent communication and listening skills Always make me feel comfortable. I never feel like they are just throwing medication at me. I have been diagnosed by two different neurologist with a condition that requires me to take medication to bring me relief. Dr Sherlis and Michelle always prescribe just the right amount of medication to bring me relief, yet function throughout the day...
I have and will continue recommending TVPC whenever the opportunity arises.

At 58 years I was seriously considering medical retirement. Degenerative arthritis in the lower back had reduced my height two inches, inflammation affected surrounding tissues causing intense muscle spasms and torn muscles. For years I’d taken pain drugs, but could no longer tolerate reduced mental capabilities at work (Analyst). I was referred to Tennessee Valley Pain Consultants and was amazed by the effectiveness of the shots, which were 90-100%. I did not retire until age sixty nine. I continue to enjoy my treatments in retirement, performing household chores such as lawn cutting, trimming and edging. My recreation includes boating/fishing, walking for exercise, and several week-long SCUBA diving trips per year. Dr. John Roberts has provided all my treatments through the years and I make it a point each trip to tell him he changed my life and is my Hero.

I see Dr. Roberts and Nurse Practitioner Roger. They are both wonderful and very caring about their patients. They take very good care of me.
