last comment added I'm a 73 year old retired bank executive who has sufferred from chronic lower back pain for many years.  Having heard about a newer non-surgical procedure Called Vax-D, In February 2016  I made an appointment with Dr. Stephen Stokes of Advanced Pain Solutions,LLC, Ft. Myers, FL to see if I was a candidate for this procedure. Based on the expert evaluation of my MRI and subsequent recommendation by Doctor Stephen Stokes, I entered into a good-faith agreement to receive the Vax-D treatments. This was to be a 2 month treatment plan where you go every day for the first month and then 3 times per week the second month and you spend about an hour each day on the machine.

I started off with high hopes and expectations to finally rid myself of the constant pain and sleeping problems related to the back pain..  Given the opportunity to be pain free without back surgery,  the $3,995.00 fee seemed like a bargain at the time.  In the beginning I was hoping for total relief from my pain. When this didn't happen the expectations were lowered to "MORE GOOD DAYS THAN BAD". When this failed the expectations were lowered once again to "ANY MODEST IMPROVEMENT".  Any modest improvement noted early on was either temporary of imagined. After the initial 2 months of treatment there was absolutely no improvement in my condiotion. I believe Dr. Stokes knew the procedure had failed after the first 2 months, but in an effort to justify his fee, he continued the treatments  on a once a week basis. Finally aftrer 3 1/2 months and 44 Vax-D treatments I mercifully ended the treatments on May 12, 2016. I no longer wanted to proplong the disappointment.  I'm certainly not a quitter, but i am a realist.   This had become an excercise in futility. With the total failure of the Vax-D treatments, the $3,995.00 fee (paid out of pocket) now seemed like a lot of money to have spent for absolutely nothing in return. In addition to the $3,995.00, I had the additional expense of 45 trips to Ft. Myers from Lehigh Acres, and 3 1/2 months of wasted time.

To say I was disappointed in the Vax-D results would be a gross understatement.  Dr. Stokes and his staff were friendly and professional , but the bottom line is, THE VAX-D PROGRAM WAS A TOTAL FAILURE AND THIS SHOULD RAISE A RED FLAG!   I never questioned the effort.  What I did question was the suppossed expert evaluation of my condition by Dr. Stokes, and his subsequent recommendation for the Vax-D treatments, and of course, I have serious questions about the effectiveness of the Vax-D procedure that Dr. Stokes sells.  As a parting gift from Dr. Stokes I was provided with a written threat of legal action if I did or said anything that could lead to a possible loss of business for his practice. It's difficult to imagine how my telling everyone I know that I spent in excess of $4,000.00 out of pocket for nothing, and that the Vax-D procedure was a total failure could not have a negative impact on his business?? I ASSUME THERE ARE GOOD REASONS WHY THE VAX-D PROCEDURE IS NOT APPROVED BY MEDICARE OR PRIVATE INSURANCE.

IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING THE VAX-D TREATMENT, BUYER BEWARE!!  YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT SOMETHING THAT LOOKS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE!  

IN SUMMARY: AFTER 3 1/2 MONTHS, 44 VAX-D TREATMENTS,  AND $4,500.00 OUT OF POCKET COSTS, I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO SHOW FOR IT!  I REMAIN ON PAIN PILLS AND HAVE TO WEAR A BACK BRACE WHEN ACTIVE.  I NOW FEEL A STRONG OBLIGATION TO WARN OTHER UNSUSPECTING INNOCENT PEOPLE (WITH HIGH HOPES) OF THE FINANCIAL RISKS AND THE  POTENTIAL FOR FAILURE THAT THE VAX-D PROCEDURE PRESENTS, BASED UPON MY OWN PERSONAL EXPERIENCE.

IF YOU CARE TO DISCUSS MY EXPERIENCE IN GREATER DETAIL, PLEASE PHONE (239) 369-4807.
