The treatment my doctor provided has been life changing. From my very first appointment I was finally heard and taken into consideration for the treatment I needed. My doctor understood my concerns and was able to give me the treatment I\'ve needed for years. Finally having the botox for my arms and the medications to help, I can finally live a normal life!
