The staff is courteous and kind. They go out of their way to make sure that I am comfortable and that any and all questions are answered. Dr Epter did a radio frequency procedure on me three years ago on my sciatic nerve. It has been pain free since, It has made a big difference on my activity level. I can walk without it causing me pain. I am very appreciative for the care that i receive here.
