He rushes through and doesnt listen to you or seem to even care. Hurry , hurry , hurry. Not realizing this is your life , your face.

Dr. Harrell listened about the pain I was dealing with in the right side of my back and suggested I receive a cortisone shot carefully administered and I’m happy with the results.
