Dr. Norman was spot on with my lower back issues after examining my MRI. He knew that I need immediate relief and NOT 4 weeks of therapy to get me up and walking to function in my life again. He immediately suggested facet joint injections (L4-L5) for my lower back and the appointment was set up...Read More
