Tommy was professional, kind, thorough, reassuring. He was "in tune" with my pain and with my fear of being away from home and away from my doctors. He was careful not to cause me any more pain than was necessary. I greatly appreciated his effort to educate me about my problem and what his plan was for me. He encouraged me to return to see him if I did not get better. Thank you for a good experience under difficult circumstances.

Oct 7, 2021
The knowledge of the issue was great, his bedside/ chairside mannor was unbeleivable, and even his skill with the needle was superb. I hate needles because of how shakky everyone is and with him it was just him saying relax, MINOR prick, 3 secs max then needle out. Could not have been better.

I loved that everyone had personalities rather then the usual robots you get at a doctor's office.
