Dr. Corey is the BEST! You won't find a pain management doctor that'll have a more perfect combination of taking your issues seriously and still add a little humor to life while he's at it. And he sure knows his stuff when it comes to figuring out difficult situations. I totally trust him with my care and wouldn't ever think of going elsewhere.
