Did "routine" injection in my grandfather's neck. Up until then he was able to do nearly all the things that you and I could do. He walked into this procedure, but was not able to walk out. To this day he can barely walk on his own. Doctor didn't even visit him in the ICU after he was the one who landed him there. Turned out he was NOT a candidate for this procedure, but doctor sold him on doing it anyways. He ruined my grandfather's life....beware of this man! Wish I could leave zero stars.

After seeing 4 doctors about lower back & leg pain & being told my only option was surgery, I heard about Dr. Charuk, he suggested an injection & physical therapy & to my surprise it worked!! I didn't have to rely on pain pills and I went about 8 months without any pain!! And I also lost some weight doing the physical therapy exercises so it was a win win! Also he makes you feel comfortable talking to him because he really listens, shows concern, & acts like a regular guy!!
