I needed a quarter-zone shot in my knee. I have had several quarter-zone shots in my life time and they ALL hurt. I went to Dr. Elmer for the 1st time and he has such a great bed side manner. He gave me the shot and to my surprise it DID NOT HURT. I could barley walk . I had been in pain for quite awhile and so many restless nights. I"m not in pain anymore and i can sleep like a normal person again. Thank you so much Dr. Elmer, you will be my Doctor from now on. His staff is really great too.

Dr. Elmer and staff were excellent. It was my initial appointment and was extremely satisfied. Going to the doctor can be a little unsettling at times but Dr. Elmer's professionalism and knowledge as well as "bedside manor" were top notch
