St. George, KS |
Dr. Southwick is very passionate about his patients and their care. He placed a great effort in getting to know me and help me understand why I am in pain a gave me options to ease pain. He is honest and straightforward. I have trusted him to manage my low back for over a year and I couldn’t be more pleased with his compassion and genuine concern for my quality of life.

I have had moderate to severe back pain radiating down my legs for several years and have had multiple injections, etc. I was referred to Dr. Southwick for this pain by my primary, Dennis Sewell, of Junction City. Initially I had facet injections (which had never been done, oddly enough) and the first set worked. The second set did not work so well and so I called in for an urgent appointment, which was done and he did RFA, which worked and helped for the first time to ease my pain
