Patient Comments (1)
in Quincy, IL |
Because of my husband's young age no one would take him seriously. Dr. Kukkar did. My husband needed emergency as he had been walking without bone for about 4 inches and literally was walking only on his spinal cord for some time. He left the hospital in 24 hrs walking on his own in little to no pain, where he had been living in excruciating pain daily. I got my husband back?I'll use his stats below.
