Based on my experience, I suggest finding another doctor. An unnecessary procedure was done on my back that only made the problem worse. The pain it caused was horrific. He saw it as a way to charge another $1500. After suffering for weeks with no help, his only answer was The Mayo Clinic! I chose to see a chiropractic and was informed that due to my fall down a flight of stairs, I had whiplash and was better after one adjustment. I was informed that it's all about money. Highly disgusted!

The other 2 seemed to want me taking something several times a day that actually made me less active because I slept all day and my pain wasn't controlled which in turn caused me stress which causes an increase in my seizuresI am excited to see tomorro
