  • Central Florida Pain Management
    "So far so good, Only had a couple of visits,, but I am impressed with Doctor and staff attitude. Already looking at possibilities of relief that no one has looked at for years. Maybe wasting time but keeping me as pain free as reasonable and at least doing something. I feel good about that."
