I have been in worse pain scenes the day he cut on me. I'm in worse shape now. I tried to talk to him about it and he pawned me off on someone else.

Dr. Smisson worked very hard for 5 months to successfully help me get to the point of beginning physical therapy. He never gave up on me and most important he listen to me.
