Springville, AL |
Dr. Gullung was very good. He handled all of my problems very well. I would highly recommend him to anyone with back problems.
in Bessemer, AL |
OMG! This doctor is amazing! He performed surgery on my lumbar area 4/10/17 and I noticed the difference with 2 days. I had been having pain blocks several times a year for about 6 + years because I had been told that I wasn’t a surgery candidate. My niece had used Dr. Gullung so I decided to see him. I felt like I didn’t have anything to lose. He also has an amazing staff and Billy the Nurse Practitioner is the best also. Dr. Gullung I can never thank you enough! I would definitely recommend.
