Provider Reviews

I was so scared to have a steroid shot for my hip and spine but Dr Razdan explained the entire procedure, what was in the shot, etc., leaving me pleasantly surprised when I felt only one minor needle stick with very little pain. I would recommend him highly. He truly is a painfree doctor.
