- Patrick B.(Verified Patient)

I have seen dr. irfan several times for severe back pain..it had gotten so bad I had no quality of life it was a struggle to get through each day and I really didn’t know where to turn as I had been to pain docs in the years past and was never presented with any real treatment options besides throwing pain meds down my throat until I went away..on my first visit I explained the situation and dr. irfan immediately took action with trigger point injections and immediately scheduled me for a series of more permanent injections as well as setting me up with one of the best chiropractors in the state (in my opinion) long story short my quality of life is on the rise and pain levels are the exact opposite. Dr. Irfan is one of those rare doctors that actually cares about his patients. Dr. Irfan and his staff treats anyone that’s walks into his office like family. Thanks doc for everything you have done for me I cannot put into words how grateful I am.
