Avoid this guy !!! I saw him and was in extreme pain from 2 herniated disc. He did absolutely NOTHING for me and informed me that their policy is to not give pain relievers to anyone unless you have surgery..Thank god i have a great family doctor that doesnt believe in letting his patients suffer.I WILL NEVER SEE THIS GUY AGAIN..
