I had 2 herniated disk in my neck , was in so much pain and I couldn't move my neck. Dr, Baker did one injection on my neck, and right after that, the pain was gone and I could move my neck again! He is an awesome doctor, and I was so lucky to find him. Dr. Baker made the whole process very relaxing & comfortable for me. I didn't feel anything. He is very precise and knowledgable. Thank you so very much Dr. Baker for your help . You are the best. I've been pain free for 8 years now! Thank you!
