Covington, LA |
Very knowledgeable, kind and explains things very well.
Kenner, LA |
He was good w testing thoroughly due to 29 years old he did not believe in writing any pain med even though he Put me through multiple extremely rigorous testing,bc he thought he would show me nothing was wrong or it was bearable,so he did every test he could An each 1 showed just how bad I really was but worst which I understand he don't want to youth hooked on pain meds however,I didn't want to suffer with pain, so where is the balance,well to him I had to deal with it,bc I was 29 he judges
