Good morning Dr. Rao, Thank you. After going to four pain management clinic’s, two orthopedic doctors and spending over $1579.00 with no relief. After one visit with you I am finally getting some relief. I still hurts but it’s doesn’t seem to be getting worse, as it has been for almost a year. I don’t feel like giving up and this life I have might actually be worth fighting for, as I am not consumed every minute of everyday fighting pain.
