I injured my back at the gym several weeks ago. I was in so much pain and decided to call St. michael Pain and spine clinic, referred by a friend. They gave me an appointment right away and my prescribed medecine was ready for pick up the same day as well. The staff was very friendly and Dr. Pappolla has great bedside manners. I will definitely be back for my next appointment. Highly recommended.
