I normally go to Spaulding Rehab to get my injections but I was in a car accident last year and my PCP referred me to Dr. Sasa Periskic. He was so compassionate and explained my options, which I did not receive by my prior doctor. He is very kind and knowledgeable. I like the fact they do urine tests on every patient/visit, even though some may find this offensive, I find it refreshing that a physician cares and doesn't take no nonsense.
