Dr Wallington is so great at performing the Epidural on my back. He explains everything so well and I was immediately relieved of pain. The Epidural lasted Two and a half years which is amazing with no pain. Back acting up again and I’m having Dr Wallington do his magic again. So much easier than having surgery.
