Patient Comments (1)
in Aurora, CO |
My 1st visit to her was great. Explained through MRI images that I had herniated 2 discs and could see it was causing me great pain. Set up injections with a colleague and told me to wait 72 hours for full effect. And wrote me prescriptions, one percocet and another muscle relaxer for spasms. Ran out of meds 2 weeks later than I should have and was traveling with a 2 year to see dying grandparents. Called in for refill of RX and was told if it hurts that much I should cancel trip and go to ER.
