in Winchendon, MA |
Dr. Sullivan has been giving me shots in my back for almost 3!years. He is very thourough and very calming. When the shots stopped working he referred me to Dr. Zannikos who did my surgery in February. Both wonderful doctors. I can't thank them enough for helping me be pain free after 4 years of constant pain. I have recommended a few co-workers to him.

I WOULD recommend him to all my friends in a heart beat. Kevin is a kind and very considerate Dr.. His goal is to make you well. As for me he did wonders. I haven't needed a walker since he treated me.

If you are injured and seriously looking to get to get your life back to where it was prior to your injury, I highly recommend Dr. Sullivan. My first visit with Dr. Sullivan diagnosis was correct and very beneficial. Dr. Sullivain listens to his patients and also asks many questions, before diagnosising. Dr. Sullivan offers feedback and suggestions, Very experienced and knowledgeable.
