I have been dealing with a couple herniated discs and was in significant pain for several weeks. Dr Irwin and assistant tiffany Simpson were true lifesavers. They were extremely welcoming and so knowledgeable in my medical diagnosis. Dr Irwin was able to give me an epidural in my back which provided noticeable relief and hopefully will send me back on the road to being pain free.

If you are suffering from disc disease or a bulging/herniated disc I highly recommend calling Clearwater pain solutions. They are phenomenal and will take great care of you. So glad I found them!

Very pleasant support staff and PA. Doctor had excellent bedside manners and was very proficient in applying cervical shot (better than any other pain doctor who has treated my lower or upper back).

My 1st visit experience was Amazing! The office staff were very friendly, knowledgeable and took care of everything! Dr. Anna Irwin is a dream come true! She asked great questions and most of all was a terrific listener. Nothing got lost in our conversation. Although my situation may be considered unique and uncommon, Dr. Irwin immediately connected with me and offered a solution never mentioned before by any other doctor in my nearly 20 years of chronic pain. Heaven has to be missing an Angel. I'm so fortunate and grateful to now be under the care of Dr. Irwin.
I'm excited and now hopeful for a less painful future.

Dr. Anna Irwin and her team are exceptional! From the initial phone call to the procedure, I felt welcomed and cared for. Dr. Irwin is knowledgeable, compassionate, and attentive, making sure I understand my treatment. The entire team went above and beyond to make my experience stress-free. Highly recommend!

When I first entered the office I was greeted by a smiling Miss Tiffany who promptly verified my information and told me that she would get me in within a few minutes which she did. Her outstanding personality and professionalism set the tone for what was a great way to start a first visit with this office.
Dr. Irwin was also a pleasure to speak with. She reviewed my xrays & EMG along with my symptoms and previous treatments to determine a treatment plan that would work best for me.
I had previously been treated at the Columbia, MD location and the difference with their doctor and staff is night and day.
I live 35 miles from the Bethesda office and it was well worth the time and effort to go to this location.
Lastly, I would score their patient portal and call center (which are a separate entity) a -2 stars due to a glitch or just poorly designed systems. It seems that Athena Health has outscourced most of their services and none of them are good alone or as a team. My faith in their ability to keep my medical records secure is very low.

Dr. Irwin was fantastic! She made me feel reassured and comfortable and made sure I got the cortisone injection I needed as rapidly as possible and with minimal discomfort. She is terrific!

Great service. Only criticism was requirement to arrive 40 minutes before appointment time. Waited 35 minutes of that time as paperwork took less than 5 minutes.

It was a telemedicine appointment that was 25 minutes late. The audio did not work so we had to do it on the phone. I like Dr. Irwin and she is highly recommended but I thought the visit was very abrupt. We briefly discussed how well the epidural had worked and then I wanted to talk about general back pain from surgery. She made clear she only does shots and medicine and asked what medicine I would try. I guess I thought pain management extended beyond meds and shots. Clearly if the muscle relaxant does not work I will have to find someone else for alternative approaches. I just felt the appointment was rushed and next time would insist on an in office visit. But the epidural she gave me did work!

Clearway in Silver Spring at 2101 Medical Park Drive is outstanding! They took me the next day when I called them. I was on a visit to the area and my hip was very painful. DR. AMY was super friendly and knowledgeable. She administered an image - guided steroid shot with expertise, and 2 hours later, I felt relief! The front desk/ tech, was also amazing. So friendly and attentive! The waiting area offers snacks and drinks. Very clean facility. I think the whole thing took 20 minutes. I am so thankful and strongly recommend their services. Your search for pain relief is over, go here!

I was pleased with the knowledge and professionalism of Dr. Irwin. I wish I had asked for some pain medication as it will be over a week before my pain relieving procedure is scheduled.

Starting with the first point of contact, just an outstanding experience. No one likes going to a doctor but when life requires that you must, having providers like this gives you a less stressful experience and you have confidence in a positive outcome.

Dr. Irwin is very personable, and available to answer questions. Her staff at Clearway Pain Solutions is also very pleasant and helpful. I've seen her for a consult, a minimally invasive spinal procedure, and a follow-up. I was mostly pleased with my treatment, except for an unpleasant reaction I had to the anesthesia, which I warned them about, but they didn't give me prophylactic medication to prevent the nausea and vomiting, and had to treat me afterwards instead, so I had a long and unpleasant recovery period following my procedure. Aside from that, it went well. Dr. Irwin carefully considered my case, and consulted with an orthopedic surgeon before deciding what the best procedure would be for my back, and I appreciate her care and thoughtfulness.

I've never been to a doctor's office where EVERY member of the staff was friendly, cordial and cater to the patient's every need.

The doctor, nurse and front desk staff are the most accommodating members I have ever encountered. Although my drive to get to this office is longer than my other doctors, but it is TOTALLY worth every mile driven!

Dr. Irwin and her staff seek to listen attentively to the uniquely, specific needs of their patients who suffer from chronic pain. They stand out amongst others in that they consider the whole person, their past history, conditions, and devise a strategic plan of care for each patient. They also offer patients' a continuum of care, collaborating with outside specialists, including your other treating providers when necessary. Thank you so much Dr. Irwin and staff for treating me like family simultaneously with providing excellent healthcare services!

Dr. Anna Irwin is absolutely one of the best specialists' in Interventional Pain medicine I've met in years. In need of surgery and can't get in to neuro until 6/3, she came with an excellent referral from my family physician and is also highly recommended from other patients too.
She is an asset to pain management!!
If you're a chronic pain patient in need of a highly skilled and professional physician who cares about all your symptoms that works to get you out of pain, please call her!!!

I have never been to an office that was so kind and service oriented. I was met with a smile and offered an assortment of beverages on several occasions! The only reason for not giving them the 5 stars that they might deserve is how misleading the massive amount of paperwork required to become a new patient was. I had to agree and sign a multiple page (which I read) document relieving them of any responsibilities of prescribing pain medication for pain management! The doctor is lovely, but said she wasn't trained in prescribing opioids??!! Then why did I have to sign the opioid release? I left wondering if the delightful doctor had fibbed to me?!? I was given a referral to another doctor, but he is not in network with my insurance. So despite a very pleasant appointment, it was a waste of my time and money.

Courtney Fraser

She was very professional as well as compassionate and understanding. She knew I was tired of trying everything she possibly could think of and nothing helping my pain. She suggessted getting an earlier follow up with my neurologist/epilitologist.
