I work in healthcare and I am very skeptical about pain management based on what I have seen and heard. I did a LOT of research and Dr. Fred was recommended. Long story short, he was awesome, very knowledgeable and I was very impressed which doesn't happen often. I have a very abnormal spine, he got in both levels with no problem and I have had no pain so far.
