I have a slipped disc, and had terrible pain in my back last week. I went to the pain management specialists who were very thorough in explaining my options and gave me amazing care. I’m already feeling much, much better. They were diligent every step of the way.
I’m also there for physical therapy now, and have been receiving great treatment. Very friendly staff, and the facilities are brand new.
