Results are going to vary heavily as everyone has a different response/issue. This guy is to the point and doesn't mess around. These injections have been nothing short of a miracle for my lower back pain. Thank you Doc!

He is straight and to the point. I like that. I had him do my epidural injections for a couple years until my condition degenerated and required surgery at which time I requested the be my anaesthesiologist. Request pre-meds if you're at all jumpy or anxious. I'd let him do just about anything...more
