I would recommend Dr.Dankmyer to anyone. I have been with Dr.Dankmyer for years. No one could help me with my back and neck pain. I started going to Dr.DAnkmyer and it took a little time with trying different medications and amount of doses along with moist heat treatments and exercise.We finally got it right and we continue this to this day and I can finally go about my daily chores without pain.

This HAS to be the worst doctor in pain management! I saw him and he had SUCH an attitude from the second I met, even before I even had a chance to explain the problems that were plaguing me!
