    My appointment was for injections into my back for relief of nerve pain in my legs. Dr. Kumar was very gentle, informed me of each part of each injection , and showed and explained the xrays taken during the entire procedure. His assistant, Ashlyn, reassured me at each step, and showed concern for my handling the procedures. A truly great team... I am eternally grateful for their kind care.
