Dr.Gilchrist takes care in managing your pain.
in Hickory, NC |
Dr. Gilchrist went into detail to explain my diagnosis and treatment. I like the fact that he was not one of the "fast talkers" that just hurry you out.
in Granite Falls, NC |
He does not want to talk about fibromyalgia to much. In oct. I got 1 shot he said for balance, strength is what I understood. In aug and sept. I had si joint nerve blocks, burns whatever. I was doing good.on my Dec. Visit I told him things had been going good.if I felt a little pain coming I rested it was gone...that was a big thing for me. I have fibromyalgia so my back hurts alot sometimes. On Dec.app.he felt back and said he wanted to get shots started. I didnt understand why but I had left.
