I have been his Patient over 6 years now. I just love him! he is hands down the best md I have had to see. I can't say enough how much i love this man! I now have him treating not only my chronic conditions but that of my mom & soon my dad. if you have any type of back pain, go see him. He is gentle and considerate, yet talks to you like a human. I trust Dr. Banks with my life.The only downside is his staff. they are not very considerate or understanding. But Dr. Banks makes it worth it.
