Patient Comments (1)
in Rocklin, CA |
Dr. Hembd explained treatment options for my herniated disc. He performed 2 epidurals, each lasting more than 6 months. He was very thorough in explaining the options for pain management for my back pain. I would definitely go back to him for a nerve ablation if the severe pain comes back.
