Not enough space for this busy practice. Waiting room insufficient for patients in wheelchairs to maneuver. Difficult to go around corners. Not enough room for patients or staff to maintain 6’ of separation for contagion measures.

Dr. Bednarek has been wonderful to me. He listens to my symptoms and makes decisions based on what he hears and the examination. I’ve been to other practices but he is the best so far. When my husband needed a pain specialist, I recommended he try Dr. Bednarek. The office staff has always treated me and my husband with respect and kindness. There are times when the office is very busy and we need to wait. No one is at fault when this happens. Some patients require more time and attention, but I know when I see the doctor he will not rush me. He will provide the best possible care. This may be outside the actual medical care, but I genuinely like Dr. B, Jess and the other staff at Clearway Pain Solutions. We will continue to be faithful patients and recommend the practice.

Dr. Bednarek is a very caring and competent physician. He's helping me with the issues with my back, hip, and sciatic pain.
With his help, my pain level is lower than it was before I started coming to Clearway Pain Solutions. Dr. Bednarek always makes great suggestions about procedures, etc to ease my pain, he's easy to talk to, and has a great sense of humor. I would definitely recommend Dr. Bednarek to anyone. An Update: Dr. Bednarek sent me to Dr. Charles Park who performed a lumbar laminectomy and my sciatica was gone immediately. It was great to finally get some relief.

For the most part, this is an efficient and well run office- seldom keeping me waiting to be seen for more than a few minutes. Although I generally prefer to see a physician, Provider/Physicians Assistant Elisha Carter is thorough and incredibly helpful and I am grateful to be in her care. My only criticism has to do with the billing department of this huge practice- it is centralized and handles billing for multiple locations and in my opinion is lagging way behind for a an organization of this size which has had explosive growth. They have made several critical errors in their bookkeeping and even sent my account to collection for being in arrears, regardless of the fact that I was able to produce FSA records showing my timely payment. This is inexcusable and terribly upsetting and incorrect. I had another incident Recently and received several texts and emails regarding an overdue account, which was in fact paid in full. Yup. Frustrating. You are required to co pay before you will be seen at your appointment and they are efficient gatekeepers. I have considered being treated elsewhere- if it weren’t for Dr Simmons, Dr B and Elisha Carter and their outstanding care I would have left the practice a long time ago. Can you please hire a consulting firm to help figure out an acceptable solution to the chronic billing department issues and to better monitor correspondence with your patients.

Definitely need a new receptionist
She doesn't acknowledge people when they come into the office, just appears she has a bad attitude. The doctors are very good, that's the only reason I'm still there

I have been going to Clearway Pain for some time. Dr Christopher Bednarek and Elisha have taken care of me. I just want you to know how understanding and caring they are with their patients. If you are having pain and need to find a doctor this is the right place.

Dr. Bednarak took his time and did not rush me along as a patient. He was very thorough and made sure I understood just what was going on in my spine. He discussed options and was very honest. I had a great experience.

I really enjoy Elisha. She's an excellent medical provider as well as a real working mom who can relate to the pressures, struggles and joys that come with being a working mom. Two of the most important jobs in the world…… relieving someone’s pain & raising another human. It appears she does both well.

Dr Carter is awesome. Takes her time with you and listens to your issues and concerns. I will not see anyone but her!! Definitely recommend her and the gbmc location.
