My kind of doctor - alert, articulate and engaged. He verbalized observations as he reviewed my MRI, the logical process of determining where to place injections and what they were supposed to achieve. He narrated the actual procedure in real time and kept me abreast of the progress and completion of treatment. His modest, single-practitioner office is run by a cheerful secretary. It is a welcome contrast to today's assembly-line medical clinics that are operated by healthcare behemoths.

There are not enough kind words to describe Dr. Schlesinger and his office staff. I came to his office with unbearable nerve pain and numbness. I couldn’t function in daily life and as a musician was traumatized. After being greeted by Kristy with her happy demeanor and smiling face I instantly felt at ease. Dr. Schlesinger spent an hour with me going over my issues, examining me and explaining his plan of action to help me. I cannot reccomdend this office more! Thank you Dr and staff!!
