I am very impressed with Dr Sullivan. I have pain in numerous joints. He is addressing them one area at a time. Today I had injections in 4 vertebrae. I was very nervous after hearing horror stories. He was so gentle, and is highly skilled. He takes time and listens to you, and explains everything so well. I would recommend him with no hesitation.
