I'm very happy with my schedule and treatments with the nurses and my caring from my doctor.

Dr Hoffman was very friendly and when I didn't understand something he found another way to explain it including turning the screen on the computer around to illustrate my x-ray issues. Initially he did not recommend a medication but when I said I was having a lot of pain getting to sleep he immediately offered me two prescriptions which has made a huge difference.
