As a Doctorally prepared college professor of nursing education, I carefully researched before choosing a physician to care for my knee and shoulder. My research showed that Dr. Likver is well trained, experienced and impressively credentialed. My personal experience with her has been no less stellar. I found her to be personable, extremely thorough and her treatment of my conditions to be effective. My painful knee and shoulder are greatly improved after just a few visits.

Dr Likver is polite, professional, and very intuitive. My initial appointment with her ran 45 minutes as she took the time to really talk to me about my knee issues, by investigating my entire walk and posture. When I received treatment from her, it was thoughtful and she explained everything as she did it. When I had questions or problems, she immediately responded and talked me through it.

Dr. Likver is the best choice you can make when looking for a physiatrist in the area! She was very professional, attentive, and caring. I've been dealing with difficult neck and back pains that have been plaguing me for the longest time. Her unique ability to diagnose and more importantly qualified and expert approach in treatment had me back to moving pain free and enjoying the things I wasn?t able to participate in years. I highly recommend a visit to her office as her expertise is invaluable

I sit typing at a computer all day (about 9 hours a day, plus more on the couch in the evenings) and my lower back was not in a good place. I went to Dr. Likver on the recommendation of a pal. She thoroughly went through my medical history for close to an hour, before she examined me, which was something I really appreciated. She worked magic on my lower back--I ended up getting several courses of prolotherapy--not fun, but absolutely worth it. She's a great, funny, caring lady. Love her!

I am shocked by the 5 star reviews for this doctor online.The receptionist did not even know who Dr. Likver was, it took 35 minutes to be seen, and the information I was given was shady at best. Dr. Likver suggested Intravenous Ozone Therapy to treat my epilepsy, even though she is NOT a neurologist, and shirked off physical therapy to treat my shoulder as if I had no chance of recovery unless I invested in two of her injection procedures, neither of which would be covered by insurance.
