    in Deerfield, FL 33441 |
    You performed an XLIF on my back on L4-L-5 For years I have been in extreme pain. Suffering from a pinched nerve/sciatica. The surgery was on 9-11-08 I went everywhere trying to get relief. Back at your office & I was forwarded to a pain management clinic whereby they load you up with pills. They tried an epidural, nerve blocks & nothing helped. I tried physical therapy, deep tissue messages & acupuncture for years. No relief. Now lawsuits on this type of surgery as it causes nerve damage

    100% pleased ..... have seen all physicians at this clinic .... every one a Pro and I am a grouchy 75 year old normally. Staff is just as Pro. Regret they not in Okla where I have relocated temporarily.
