Your Pain Is Our Priority!

In Our Patient's Words

  • ★★★★★ I have been a patient of Dr. Leng Ky for a couple of years now.  He is the only pain management specialist I've ever had who does everything in his power to help me.  My pain is very complicated due to my other health issues and my other medications. In my opinion, he is the most caring and most professional pain management physician I have ever been treated by.

  • ★★★★★ I couldn't be more pleased and impressed. The office staff are amazing, always greeting with a smile and very kind. They get to know each patient personally and address you by name which gives a sense of caring and welcoming vibe. They go above and beyond, to be helpful in any way they can, and have genuine care and concern for patients...they offer a variety of ways to manage pain aside from a pharmaceutical way. The program offers services such as massage, chiropractic, naturopathic, tai chi, group therapy, behavioral health, acupuncture, and much more.  Over all, if I could give more than 5 stars, I totally would. I highly recommend them for anyone seeking a way to manage pain.

  • ★★★★★ Love the staff...from the secretaries up front, to the docs in the back.  Always smiling and friendly, even though it is a somewhat high-stress environment trying to treat all of us that can sometimes be hard to deal with and irritable due to our conditions. Especially love, love, love Dr. Paul and Dr. Rabb...they really do care and believe what you tell them. The multi-pronged approach is awesome. Lucky to have this place in my life...thank you!

  • ★★★★★ I'm so pleased with the care I received as a new patient. They have a team full of smiling faces, compassionate people, and knowledgeable of different types of pain. It's horrible to go through life everyday in pain as it is, so having an amazing medical team behind you makes it that much better! I'd recommend this office to everyone in pain. Please give them a try and they won't disappoint!

  • ★★★★★ Pleasant and helpful staff. Doctors who truly care about you. I have been treated not as a patient which they are being paid to see, but as a person with legitimate pain who needs their help. Dr. "Toby" Tobias Moeller-Bertram is a pain management physician that other doctors within this field should aspire to be much more like. I have, and will continue to recommend Desert Clinic Pain Institute to everyone in need of quality, compassionate care for pain. Simply excellent!

  • ★★★★★ Best pain management in the Valley!! You actually get to see the doctors. They are good doctors too. If you feel you want a change they listen and offer solutions. I have seen Dr. Moeller-Bertram and he is wonderful, very down to earth. All the doctors and staff are very nice and understanding. This is a great place for patients with fibro.

  • ★★★★★ Ok where do I start - first I will say the ladies, who run the office are like diamonds - they are so helpful, considerate, caring and they know exactly what they are doing. I need to say the men in the office also do. They both make going to this office a great experience. The Doctors are top of the line. They also have a great way of making you feel hopeful again if you have been suffering for years from excruciating pain like I have. You will be beyond satisfied at every level. This clinic is a hidden jewel in the desert. Thank you everyone at Desert Clinic for all you do.
