I have a great experience seeing Dr. Desmond Erasmus, my husband was suffering for a lower back pain to the point that he used to be paralyzed at times, after the first visits to Dr. Erasmus he assured my husband that after the surgery he will be with no pain , that was nothing but the truth. It has being years since he was operated, and he is working and feeling grteat. Thank you Dr. Erasmus.
I was in the hospital with a gun shoot to the head from a drive by shooter. They called him in and he was so nice to me and made me feel everything was going to be alright. He did the surgery. I was 25 then I am 47 now. I should not have made but his work was amazing. I have him to think for that and I do everyday
