Dr. Kushner is very knowledgeable about nerve and spine health... he is currently treating me for degenerative disk disease; he takes the time to listen to me, and carry out the tests he needs to monitor my recovery... I drive over 50 miles one way to see him, as the 'big' city Drs. do not have time to treat their patients as they should... Please don't retire any time soon!!
