What People Say About Dr. Paul Larson, MD
Reply
Dr. Paul Larson has placed 2 Deep Brain Stimulators in my brain for Essential Tremors, and it has made my life so much better. He is a wonderful surgeon and a caring and sincere human being. I would (and have) trust(ed) him with my life and would recommend any person who is suffering from Essential Tremors or Parkinson's disease to see him.
