Patient Comments (1)
in Decatur, AL |
I have been using this doctor for a few years now. He has different methods for relieving pain. I have 2 herniated discs in my back, and 2 or 3 fractured discs. I had trouble finding any long lasting relief. Since I have been using this doctor, my pain is under control and at a minimum. I am comfortable and without pain most of the time, and can sleep without the pain waking me. I can do more activity wise and have very few things that pain stops me from doing.
