My pain was at least an 8. It was persistent and constant. I couldn't do housework, walk, play with my son. I was on crutches and couldn't put any weight on my left foot. I feel great. I am now able to walk and play with my son. The staff is excellent, very accommodating, friendly, and professional. The doctors are excellent, caring, and made my recovery simple and pleasant. I recommend them to everyone!James Just
