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!!!

This doctor cares about you as an individual, explains all treatment options, and cares for my overall well being. I have been seeing this doctor for 4 years now as he has been able to keep me functioning with reduced pain and able to work full time at my current strenuous job.
