At this time l do want not any medical treatment except prescription medications. Cortisone,Lidocaine and opiate medications is what l have decide on. I do not want a nerve block or stimulation nerve therapy. I do understand ,however l do think that most patients understand you and your staff as well as l do. That's why l believe you do not have as high a rating based on that. Thank you again.
