this provider is a person I go to for pain management. She is on top of her game. She asks the right questions and gives me the correct medications to help with my pain management. this visit was to see how the joint facet block worked on my lower back and if there were any problems that I was suffering from that procedure. I was given very good feedback and would recommend this provider to anyone who is suffering with major pain.
