Several years ago, as I was preparing to leave for a medical mission trip, my back began to hurt severely. It had been a nagging discomfort for many years, but this was different. I was told by a ‘back specialist’ that I would be able to make the trip, but would most likely need surgery when I returned. I learned of Athens Spine Center and their outstanding reputation and decide to seek their counsel. I had a single injection and felt remarkably improved for over a year! I have subsequently had another injection when the flare-up started – again giving me tremendous relief. Athens Spine Center physicians are what I call a ‘physician’s physician’ … trusted among their peers to provide excellent care. The staff is outstanding and compassionate. Many thanks for all they have done for me.Mark J. Eanes, M.D.
