“On the day of the needle guided procedure, the doctor talked to me again about what was going to happen and what to expect. He showed concern about his findings of my condition & added additional information on what the next step would be if I did not get a good outcome from the first injection. Well, I can tell you that I only had one dose with excellent results. What I thought was my back turned out to be my hip, which he addressed with the injection to that joint area since I did have arthritis. Dr. Kim made me feel comfortable during the procedure and gave additional advice on how to address my weakness in my low back.”
