She listens and helps
in Quincy, MA |
I see her for pain management at the VAMC in Boston. I have severe nerve damage from Proton Beam Radiation for eye cancer with chronic head pain...She has been one of the most successful Dr's I've met in helping me decrease the pain via Botox and nerve blocks. Most recently 2 RFA procedures that have help tremendously...She is extremely knowledgeable and willing to explain everything she is doing...Great Doctor.
