after 3 visits to ER, 3 visits to GP, calls to 3 pain clinics.. Called ICPR. Dr Sumer say 93 yr old Dad same day. Treated him immediately and for first time in 3 weeks, Dad was able to move comfortably and sleep. Can't thank this office enough for how we were treated. Thanks Dr and staff. God bless you.
Been a patient since the practice was opened. In the last 6 months can't get an appointment for at least a week or more. Not happy.
