Very professional

I am very pleased with my results. I have torn rotator cuffs and have been in pain severely with my right one for 6-8 months. It took a few days after receiving my injections to feel the full effect. First time I've been in this minimal amount of pain in so long I kind of forgot what it felt like. I also have back surgery coming up in August. Maynard followed up with an oral steroid with the hopes that it would help my overall health. Just like with my shoulders for the first time in months I am in minimal pain. The question is why I had to be in pain for so long with no one doing anything about it?? I'm thankful for Maynard's compassion and bedside manners. I give him five stars.⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Thank you, Maynard for giving me hope for a future with less pain.
