Springfield, MA |
She is awesome . Excellent Dr. Very personal through and kind . Her office is quite and peaceful . I highly recommend het.
Hartford, CT |
Very strange office with little "Medical" equipment on site except for a bed, vital machine and exam gloves in a big open room. Waited forever to get an appointment and then after exam she said she could do injections but a new MRI is needed and nothing was done to help alleviate pain. She did ALERT me that I was having muscle spasm but could not do anything to assist. I felt like the commercial for a dentist who tells you about the cavity you have but then they go to lunch.

Very bright and knowledgeable but overly cautious. I've gone twice and nothing has been done. I don't think she wanted to do my injections for some reason.
