I have gone to Dr. Diefenbach before and he has been very professional and he listened to what I had to say. I am going back to him for a spinal cord stimulation and I'm really looking forward to this. I have been in pain for the past 2 years after I fell down a flight of stairs, I have gone through the trial and it was a complete success and I'm waiting to have the permanent one put in.

My husband was in a logging accident and broke his neck. Dr. D did Ana amazing job putting his neck back together. My husband had other injuries and Dr. D went above and beyond to get him into a doctor in buffalo to get him 100% fixed. We love this man.
