Saw Dr Farino for trigger thumb, one injection and I'm good as new. Did not hurt except a pinch for a few seconds. Don't let people scare you saying injections hurt. Dr Farino is compassionate, speaks in terms you understand, and spends needed time to explain your condition and treatment options....more
