I was happy that I could get in right away. I wrenched my back at work and Work clinic gave me ibuprofen and an X-ray. Turns out I have a herniated disk- the epidural dr deisfeid gave me only took a minute and worked like magic! Should've been sent to him first!

Dr. Diesfeld treatmant my shingles pain very aggressively. His knowledge level is very high and he prescribed anti viral cream that significantly reduced recovery time. His staff scheduled in a quick manner and I was able to see him the next day. Thanks

$$Does not explain medications clearly when given, also schedules appointments where not notified on what medication needed to avoid to make procedures. Scheduled a one day surgery and took off work, drove an hour to be notified that I can have the procedure. Office only told me to not take aspirin, but doctor prescribed medication and told me to take it, when I get to the hospital at 5 am. He said its not allowed, and I would not be allowed because of taking medicine one time 4 days prior.
