I love Rick, my 1st visit he sat down looked me in the eyes and “Tell me what is causing your pain and how long and where is it at?” I felt he cared about me, not just a number!

I have had intractable daily migraines for over 3 yrs. He is very patient and caring and after trying all procedures from injections, nerve blocks, botox, stem cell treatment & living on pain meds for yrs he finally suggested as a last option a neuro stimulator implant trial. He did the trial insertion of leads last week & I have had no migraines since the trial! I am now moving forward to having him surgically implant the stimulator permanently. I highly recommend him. He's really is the best
