One of the kindest, most competent and also very generous doctors I have ever met in my life. He almost literally gave me my life back to me - I will remain ever so grateful for the rest of my life.

This guy had absolutely no compassion for the pain I have been experiencing for years and am still experiencing. I had such high hopes prior to seeing him thinking that he would be the doctor to finally help me obtain a proper diagnosis and PAIN RELIEVING treatment. RETIRE!
