Back Shots that Really Work

I've been going to Doctor Handel for about seven years now. I went to him after getting shots from several other places that were not effective. THE SHOTS WORK HERE! I initially came to find Dr. Handel after seeing a surgeon who had just given me a second opinion. I had tried all other options and now I had two opinions agreeing that I needed surgery. The surgeon told me that if I wanted to I could try backs shots again. So wanting to avoid surgery, I did. And the shot was like magic. Dr. Handel's one shot did more then all the series of multiple shots I had over the previous two years did together. They relieved my pain to a very minimal level. It's not a cure. I do have to get the shots routinely. The staff in his office are friendly and professional. They are always very accommodating when I schedule an appointment. I never have to wait too long. After getting to know Doctor Handel, over the years, I find him to be a genuinely sincere empathetic person who is very effective at what he does.

WASTE OF TIME!!

I would never send my dog to this Dr. I went to see him, i,was seen by the PA who works with him. She walked out, after a few minutes he walked in alone. He had me sit in a chair and before I knew it, I have a needle in the back of my neck. He never even had the machine to see that he was going in the correct area. He stuck the needle in and was moving it around and I could hear cracking and felt severe pain. He then did the same thing a little lower in my neck. Now my pain is to the point that it hurts with the slightest movement. Thanx Dr. I would never recommend this so called Dr to anyone. Stay,away unless you want to feel worse.

Painful shots unnecessarily

The doctor doesn't spend the time to educate each of his patients whaf he is doing-step by step I don't know why his epidermal shots hurt so much while with other doctors they don't
