Has anyone had any experience with having spinal nerve block injections?

I have a couple of discs bulging (cervical spine) - the pain is a good 8/10. My doctor suggested a nerve block (injection of cortisone into the area around the spine) and I'm wondering if my fellow mefites can offer any wisdom.
I'm interested in finding out if they work - how long they take to kick in - how much these things cost and things to watch for.
Also - have heard perjorative things from 'pain management specialists' about 'block shops' - anyone care to comment?
