Review for Dr. Dubois

I'm very happy that I do not have a problem which would involve surgery! I have never had a doctor explain exactly why and about peripheral neuropathy, he did a more than excellent explanation for me, he make this a whole lot better for me to understand what is happening to my nerves. Thank you, Dr....

After the nerve conduction study he stated everything came back...
