IMPORTANCE OF BEING IN THE RIGHT HOSPITAL WITH THE RIGHT PHYSICIAN

blog4“I am doing things that I never imagined I would be doing so soon post-surgery.  Even my chiropractor told me I have recovered faster than anyone he has ever seen.  Most of my restrictions have been lifted.  I know I need to moderate my behavior, but I am so grateful for this outcome.  If you asked me to rate this experience from 1 to 10, I would give it a 30!  I want everyone to know that it really does matter that you see the right physician. Healthnetwork and UCSF – you made such a difference.”
