Felt very much part of the process. Everything was explained clearly. Options were discussed before decisions were made. Good listener. I could not be more pleased. Impressive.

Dr Cmelak thoroughly explained how the therapy was going happen for each and every time. He used a model of the pelvic area to show it and explain it to me.

*Dr. Cmelak is kind, caring, and knowledgeable doctor. Also, his sense of humor is awesome - you need a doctor like that to ease the patient. Takes time to answer your questions & tells it like it is - would recommend him in a heartbeat!
