Awesome! I had what I was told were hemeroids for the last >10 years. Dr. Hobson treated me in a very logical, understandable, way and I was pain free, no more creams, in a week. I passed the info off to my father who had been suffering from what he was told were hemeroids for the last 40 years, he was pain free in a week. The pain has been gone for over a year. Dr. Hobson literally kicks butt.
