I had been in excruciating pain for 5 years and was about to give up on any quality of life when I was referred to this wonderful doctor. Not only is he an extremely skilled and gifted physician, he is the most caring and concerned doctor I have ever met in my fifty years on this earth. He took me seriously instead of dismissing my pain, and has given me back my life and my ability to earn a living. I have never met a doctor and staff who have so much compassion for every patient. The very best
