Grand Valley State University 2001
After a year of pelvic pain, my PA referred me to Lisa in hopes she could help. Now after 6 weeks, the pain is gone, and the quality of my life has significantly improved. The stress and anxiety that plagued me has been alleviated, and I am no longer terrified that I will have to deal with pain for the rest of my life.Morgan
