  • I’ve had back pain since 2006 and found myself gaining weight because of it. Before you know it I was 400 lbs. I decided I needed to do something about the back pain. I lost weight and got down to 170 lbs. The weight loss didn’t help like I had hoped and in 2016 the pain was so bad I couldn’t exercise and it made it very hard to sleep. I started seeing Dr. Chu and for help and now I’m back to exercising, golfing and sleeping fine again. I can watch TV without pain and I have my life again. I would definitely recommend Javery Pain Institute to anyone.

  • I have been a patient of Dr Javery for many years. I can’t express how much this man has changed my life. I went from a person that could hardly walk a few steps to a much improved quality of life. If it wasn’t for Dr Javery I do not think I would be alive today. This man has literally saved my life. I have had experience with a bad Doctor many years ago in a different city. I know what that look and feels like and I can tell you this. That is not the case here. I have read all the reviews good and bad. I have my own opinion about the bad reviews that I will keep to myself. If you are in real pain the kind that keeps you up all night the kind of pain that makes you ask yourself how much more of this can one person take. If you are looking for help with that kind of pain. This is the place for you. If you are looking for a Doctor that is caring, compassionate and extremely knowledgeable. This is the place for you. If you are looking for a place that is progressive and professional. This is the place for you. If you are looking for a place where the staff cares about you and your concerns. This is the place for you. If you are looking to deal with your pain in a mature manner then give them a call you will not regret it. Dr Javery and the Javery Pain Institute has changed my life and they can do the same for you.

  • After my initial injury assessment with Dr. Javery myself and my wife felt real confident in the procedure that was discussed! We returned a week later 3/30/17. The procedure went great and I felt relief immediately! Thank you for making me feel much better! The Dr. and assistants were wonderful! Would go back any time I need pain relief! God Bless!

  • I have experienced unexplained, long term back pain for 17 years. A long line of doctors prescribed medications, rest, and physical therapy, but my pain did not resolve. After a car accident compounded my pain, I found Dr. Javery. I firmly believe that Dr. Javery has changed my life. He took the time to speak with me, hear my story, and invest his knowledge to find the cause of my pain and identify a treatment plan. My quality of life is demonstrably better since I have been under Dr. Javery’s care. I have been to other pain clinics where I felt like the doctors did not remember me, or even listen to me. Dr. Javery is completely different. He is my best advocate in my journey towards pain management. He is a great listener, a talented physician, and I am grateful to have him to rely on.

  • Prior to coming to Javery Pain Institute and being treated by Dr. Chu, I was in extreme pain. I wasn’t able to be active or go to the gym, and I’m usually a very active person. Now that I’ve been coming to Javery Pain Institute I’m able to go to the gym again and participate in activities I had stopped doing.

  • I had great results with the procedure that was done. Within one month I went from severe pain to no pain. Dr. Chu has been very helpful and he has a tremendous personality.

  • To the Awesome people at Javery,

    I have an acute pinched nerve in my spine resulting in a 24 hour decline from an extremely active 62 year old to a near invalid. I made my appointment for a consultation and within two hours, I received a callback moving it up two days. I was so grateful. The consultation was yesterday at 4:30. Very unexpectedly, within minutes I was being prepared for a procedure. Tears of joy for all the people that went the extra mile so late in their work day.

    Blessings to You!

  • Dr. Javery,

    I am a 54 year old factory worker; I’m known to walk circles around my 18-25 year old co-workers. Then it happened, I awoke and it took me 20 minutes to get out of bed!

    I finally saw my doctor and he gave me two choices, either I have back surgery or I try Javery Pain Institute. I was scared, surgery was definitely out! My quality of life was declining daily. I made the call to Javery Pain Institute 2 years ago and I’ve never looked back.

    The staff really took care of me; they held my hand and explained everything in a way that I could understand.

    The best part I saved for last: IT WORKS!!!

    After my first visit, I felt immediate relief. My procedure lasts for a full 3 months. Yes, 3 months and I’m on minimal pain medication. (That was important to me.)

    To sum up my experience is this:

    1. I felt immediate relief.
    2. I don’t feel “drugged.”
    3. The staff is top notch.
    4. It’s every 3 months, not every week.

    We all live busy lives and we want our lives in good health. I found it with the Javery Pain Institute.

    Thanks for listening.

  • I wouldn’t go to any other Doctor for my pain medications. Dr. Javery really listens and takes his time with you. You can tell he truly cares! Dr. Javery and his staff are gentle and caring; they truly make my injections pain free. I’m no longer afraid to get my injections.

    Thank you for giving me my life back so I can be a better wife and mother to my children. God Bless Dr. Javery and his staff!

  • I have been a patient of Dr. Keith Javery for over a decade. I first started seeing him when he was seeing patients at Carson City Hospital and then followed him to Metro in Grand Rapids, then to his previous practice and finally to very his own practice, Javery Pain Institute.

    Dr. Javery has the BEST bedside manner of any doctor Ihave ever known, and as a nurse, I have known quite a few! He always takes the time to listen… really listen to his patients. I was in a bad way when I first met with Dr. Javery. I was in constant, excruciating pain from injuries sustained in an automobile accident in 1990. The pain had gotten to the point that I was not working or doing much of anything with my children. Dr. Javery started treatment with injections and pain medication and now my pain is under control. My quality of life has also improved. I turned 50, and with the treatment I have received from Dr. Javery; I might not be here today to enjoy my children and my grandchildren.

    The Javery Pain Institute’s staff are pleasant to deal with and always helpful. Aaron Greene, PA is an asset to the practice. His understanding and consideration are on the same level as Dr. Javery’s. I highly recommend the Javery Pain Institute to anyone that has an issue with chronic pain. I would not want anyone but Dr. Javery to treat my chronic pain condition, which is why I drive 90 miles just to continue under his care.

    If you have a chronic pain condition, you truly could not ask for a finer physician to take care of you or your family member. Do yourself a favor and call for an appointment. Pain relief is just a phone call away.
