Patient Comments (1)

in Menifee, CA |
Can I leave a 10 star review! After a freak accident on my bicycle aggravating a 39 year old injury, Dr Abshire and his team fuzzed C3 through C7. The result was incredible allowing me to regain hand and finger dexterity which was diminishing through the years. I cannot thank him enough.
