Review for Dr. Sinha

I saw Dr. Kronen today and he went over my X-rays and explained his findings and how he recommended we proceed. We agreed on a plan for my treatment and after cortisone shots fitted support gloves. So far I’m happy. We expect the treatment to take several months, but the pain is gone for now.
