    I would like to share my wonderful experience with anyone who might be dealing with chronic pain. I came to Dr. K years ago after back surgery and eight surgeries later and one of them being a broken tailbone that no other Dr. could figure out. Yes it was broken off and Dr. K figured it out after six months of suffering and I had it removed. He is one of the most compassionate people I have ever met and I feel fortunate to have him as my Dr. He is by far the best doctor I have ever dealt with!!!
