Great experience from start to finish! Been dealing with back pain for years now and coming to see Dr. Purswani has been the best decision I’ve made! He is very knowledgeable and his staff are courteous and caring. I’d give this office 10 stars if I can!
Do yourself a favor and see Dr. Purswani. He is kind, knowledgeable and very interested in helping the patient rather than keep them hooked on serious and expensive medication that may be doing the patient more harm than good.
About a year ago my primary care physician referred me to Dr Purswani I was having pain in my neck my back and down my right leg to the point that I can hardly walk he gave me steroid shots in my neck my middle back and in my lower back he did radio frequency I cannot express how much this helped me the pain is just about completely gone I am on blood thinners because of a heart condition and when he goes into my back with the shots for the radio frequencies he is so gentle and so precise that I do not even bleed from their procedure no bleeding at all I also let him do it without any sedation at all he is a god-sent he has gave me my quality-of-life back His staff is very friendly also.
