Patient Comments (1)
in Fairfield, CA |
I've been seeing dr. Amster for over 8 plus years now. I cannot say enough good things about him. I have gone from a pain level of 9-10, that's barely being able to get out of bed. To an average pain level 5 - 6 and on a good day even at 4. My pain chronic. It took quite a few years but we finally found the medicines that work and I am thrilled to be at5-6. I can go to church now I can go to the store I can work out my garden. Between him and his staff my life has become so much better.
