“I first saw Dr. Coren; he examined and ran some diagnostic tests, resulting in a diagnosis. Dr. Coren listens very well; I was impressed. He referred me to Dr. Howell and following his exam and reading my tests, and most importantly listening to my description of the problem, he determined that injections would be the best route to follow, he was reassuring and together we decided to follow his course of treatment. I received the injections and was very nervous, but everyone at the surgery center eased my fears. Dr. Howell performed the injections with some talking to me, and his kindness was much appreciated. He prescribed physical therapy starting the next day. I wondered how I would be able to start PT so quickly but trusted Dr. Howell. Physical therapists were extremely professional and explained each step and the reason why I needed to do each step carefully under their supervision. I was shocked by how the PT helped to ease my pain, which was excruciating before the injections. I thanked everyone for their kindness and at a follow up with Dr. Howell hugged him, for his excellent care.”
