I was apprehensive, but Dr. Feldman put me at ease. He is very professional, and he painlessly gave me my epidural shot in my back. Hooray! My back pain is gone.

Dr. Kassman was very calming and made the visit and the upcoming surgery something to look forward.

Review for Dr. Kassman

Dr Puttlitz is a great listener and explains all your options. I would recommend him for any pain management issues.

Review for Dr. Puttlitz

Although, I have only met with Dr Lucas on one occasion so far, I felt that he listened to my concerns. I intend to continue working with him once I have some more testing done. I think Dr Lucas is quite personable. This is a good trait when dealing in healthcare!

Review for Dr. Lucas

Busy but claim atmosphere in the check-in area. Pleasant greeting from check-in staff, imaging staff and medical staff assisting Dr. Kearney. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit with Dr. Kearney and his professionalism.
