Patient Comments (2)

Great staff and great guy but a little old school. Gave me at least 3-4 epidural shots in my back when I was in high school which was helpful at the time, but not for long term management. I am sure he told me this at the time but I was in a lot of pain. Thankfully never prescribed perscription...more

It may be difficult to get an appointment as he may not be in a particular office that you wish to see him. Other than that I completely trust everything he does.
