I suppose. The day get the best that they could considering the condition that I'm in. I would have liked further, testing or commons. I'm a situation. They referred to a neurologist so I shall way to see and what the results happened after I see the neurologist. Then I don't know if it was a good recommendation or not. Thank you.

Yes, James Van Der Heyden was very polite, thorough, and gave me really good things that he had said respectfully and honestly, and he was there for any questions that I had to ask ... ask him. He was very polite, very, very professional, and from what I could see, very truthful.

James is very caring and takes his time giving knee and shoulder injections,and he is absolutey the best at pain free cortisone shots. His shots last for months because he takes the time to find the right spots!
