Patient Testimonials


“The doctors and nurses are wonderful. I honestly don’t know how I could have survived the pain if I had not seen Dr. Clinegan. I was in such agony that I could not walk. One epidural gave me immediate relief. She knew exactly where to place the needle !! Since then, I have had to have more but the shots last several months. Dr. Rollins is also wonderful. They both inspire hope. I’ve never had a back problem until I twisted when hit by a wave at the beach. This led to finding a cyst on my spine and since then my life has changed forever. God bless these wonderful doctors !! Apps. are scheduled quickly and the wait time is minimal. I’m usually out in an hour even though I have anesthesia.” – Kathy Marnell

“Dr. Kevin Sheahan is a wonderful Dr., Dr. Mary and Dr. Joe are great also. Used for many years, highly recommend. You’re not just a number when you go through the door. They will do what’s right for you, even if you don’t always agree, they will listen and work with you. I trust all of them 100% as this is their area of expertise. If your looking for a Dr. in the Atl. there is no one better! They also have a surgery center on location.” – Daniel W.

“Extremely professional and explained in detail every aspect of treatment!” -Priscilla Davis-McIlwain

“Dr. Sheahan and Mary (NP) are fantastic. They are very engaged and offer you explanations and therapy options beyond what I have ever received at the VA.” – Richard Upshaw

“Dr. Rollins is the best!!! I have been seeing him for several years now and I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my health as much as him!!” – Jerry Thomason

“Not my real name, but I am a real person and a patient. Couldn’t be better. I went to Dr. Clingan. Wonderful doctor.” – Jack Nimble

“Dr. Rollins & staff go above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable and are receiving the best care available. .Nice to see smiles and not feel like you are just another patient. The best Dr. and help I’ve received since I became sick in the 90’s.” – Sonja Knowles

“The quality is topnotch. The doctors listen to you and work hard to minimize your pain. This pain control center is the best I’ve been to. Unlike other places, you are always involved in the decision making process including risk assessment and quality of life issues. You can’t go wrong here!” – Harry Houghtaling

“I have been a patient of Dr. Josephine Clingnan for over five years.  I have followed her from her previous practice to Southeastern Interventional Pain Associates (SIPA). I have now been a patient of SIPA for nearly three years.  Through the entire time as a patient, I can state that the entire SIPA team (administrative, nursing, patient care, and the doctors) have been nothing but exemplary. The level of patient care that I have experienced and witnessed has far surpassed expectations.  The team at SIPA has a focus on you as an individual, not a number in a medical system. I am a pain management patient requiring reoccurring procedures thru the year. In each instance, I have been treated with the utmost care and responsiveness. Anyone seeking a pain management practice focused on you and your individual needs, I would strongly recommend the team at SIPA. My husband and I have a sincere level of appreciation and thanks to each of the team at SIPA for their patient care and treatment of me (especially a big thanks to Dr. Clingnan).” Cheers, H. Lalla

I am a 63 year old female with autoimmune diseases. One, in particular, affects my spine. I sought out Dr. Rollins at SIPA in 2010 after being at a different pain management group for at least 4 years for back pain. Since being a patient at SIPA for the last 7 years, I have had multiple opportunities to observe all treating physicians and the staff. I am cared for not only as an individual but I feel safe in their care. I have been offered optional therapies for my back pain. Some have worked and some have not. But, the physicians are always open to new therapies that hold promise. One therapy was spinal nerve stimulation. That has been the best medicine for my whole body. I am not pain free but am living life in much less pain and under competent hands. I believe in this group of professionals to such an extent, I am willing to travel from South Carolina for my continued care!”  C. Shannon
