Review for Dr. Nalwa

Had shooting pain in lower back to the end of left foot. Unable to stand up straight. Walked out normally after first visit. Returned for two more treatments and a follow-up to see how I was doing. That was q year and a half ago and I have not had any more issues.

Review for Dr. Sikka

I Love Dr. Sikka! My back pain was so bad I could hardly walk, sit or stand up. Contacted Dr. Sikka and he got me in for shots the next day. It has been a year and I am still able to do most of my normal activities. I recommend him.

Review for Dr. Sikka

He was rude. The rudest I have ever seen. He did not correctly diagnose my husband. Thankfully as a nurse I was able to advocate for my husband. Gabert needs to cut back on his hours.
