Would absolutely recommend him to friends and family!

I have herniated disc for the last 25 years and about 10 year ago I had also fragmented disc. I had visited many Drs until I was lucky enough to be referred to Dr Panis. He referred me to the best physical therapy program I ever had which helped me to gain control over my body. I just can not believe that I'm totally pain free for the last two years and had done things at age 54 that I never dreamed of when I was 30. If you follow his directions there is hope for you.

Suffered serious concussion, his treatment was to pump me full of drugs. Left him after 5 months. Ended up at Spaulding rehab, doctors took me off all medicine dr panis prescribed. Made full recovery... Spaulding words, his treatment was old and outdated.
