Review for Dr. Siegel

He answered all of my questions; he showed me exactly where my injury was; and, he provided excellent advice on my recovery. It was practical and easy to follow; and, most importantly, I have completely recovered as a result of his skill and knowledge. I highly recommend Dr. Palacio!
