  • I came to the clinic on word of mouth from a friend. I had back surgery twice before coming here with virtually no success. Dr. Kravetz cut my pain level by 70%. The recovery time was far less than previous surgeries and allowed me to do activities like fishing and deer hunting. Many thanks to you and your staff for giving me this part of my life back.
