Promises or results? Have you gone
to a pain specialist and had no results? Ten years
ago I searched for a doctor to help chronic back
pain from back surgery. Ten months ago I met Dr.
Igor Sher and Dr. Eric Nagaj. No promises except
to work together. Ten months later I have gotten
off morphine and my quality of life has increased
95 percent. I will not say to you that the pain has totally
gone away and it probably never will,
however, I have a great deal of confidence because
I know that these two doctors will continue to
work with me to control and ease the pain. The
reality is that not always can it be perfect,
but sometimes what makes a huge difference is
the prospect of knowing that your doctors are
100 percent committed to your well-being and are willing
to be there for you.
I began seeing Dr. Sher and Dr. Nagaj
about 10 months ago for severe back pain resulting
from a ski injury. I had been to many doctors in the past
with no lasting results. Finally after several
years of pain and searching I met, through my
good friend Mikey Harrigan,
Dr. Sher and Dr. Nagaj. They found my problem and immediately
began to work with me. The results I have gotten
from working with these doctors have lifted a
great burden off my back. I used to go to sleep at night with pain,
wake up with pain and go throughout the day with
pain. I am only 16 years old. I have had people
tell me that I have a 70-year-old back in a teenager’s
body. Dr. Sher and Dr. Nagaj have given me a
drink of their fountain of youth.
It is hard sometimes at 85 to find doctors
who will take the time to listen. It’s even
harder to find those who will hear and understand
those things that are affecting your health and
life in general. Dr. Sher and Dr. Nagaj have both
been there for me in a way that I have not experienced
with other doctors. Their main concern has not been my insurance,
or any other small things, but it has been my
is not easy but it is harder when you feel no
one is listening.
In the past six months my health has peaked
beyond where it has been in years.
I enjoy seeing these doctors and I look
forward to living my next years in comfort thanks
to their loving medical care.
