Went today for an EMG test. He couldn't have been nicer. Talked to me the entire time which really put me at ease. I had heard some bad things about this test but he proved it was nothing at all. Liked him and would recommend him highly.

Spends half hour or more explaining things. Answers questions, patient and attentive. I see 10-12 doctors a year. He's in the top 3 of the best. He's helped nearby through 2 serious pain issues and with no opioids! If you're looking for those he's not your man.
