    Well, it was only my first visit, which went very well, but I would not make a recommendation on that limited experience. I'll wait to see how treatment proceeds.

    I have experienced nothing but kindness, understanding and encouragement from the staff and Dr. Ketan Patel. Great job! Now I'm praying that I start to heal from back and neck pain by having the injections that I received. Thank you all so much.
