Patient Comments (7)

I spent $7500 for Stem Cell injections. The pain for about 8 days afterwards was extreme. It’s 5 months later and I feel the procedure made my knees worse. Now I have to get knee replacements which I was trying to avoid.

The stem cells seem to be totally ineffective. Dr Purita is rude and impressed with himself. The office staff is beyond rude and unhelpful. The wait each time has been endless. Waist of time and money. If you want stem cells find another doctor
