“I need help getting to the bottom of my medical mystery.”
When Emma’s neck pain started with a sudden, sharp pain, she went through the usual medical channels looking for a diagnosis and treatment.
By the time she contacted us, she had spent thousands of dollars looking for a diagnosis and treatment for her unrelenting and worsening symptoms. No longer able to work, she was desperate for answers.
Our Medical Director conducted an extensive, in-depth review of her medical records from birth to the present. She investigated every clinical explanation that other doctors had offered.
