in Bronx, NY |
Dr. Seth Pullman is an outstanding doctor. I suffered a severe neck injury in 2013, and I needed Botox injections to repair the damage to the nerves in my neck. Dr. Pullman did a magnificent job of healing my injury, and curing me of my cervical dystonia. I am greatly in Dr. Pullman's debt, for giving me my life back.
