Has been my Dr. For over 5 years,,, listens to me,,, and recommends more than injections to enhance my quality of life. Would recommend him to family & friends ,,, also like that I may visit him in two locations . His assistant Wes is so caring,,,, & most kind,,, which makes the experience that much more pleasant.

The doctor was polite, and performed rudimentary tests for a diagnosis. While he mentioned a few things, he spent more time entering info into a computer and talking towards the other staff than to me. He didn't really address me with a clear diagnosis. In fact, the majority of the time I was with the assistant, who did the initial intake and then showed me exercises. I had to ask for a prescription for physical therapy which I got later from the asst.
