I started seeing Eric in 1995. I was having trouble with severe forearm pain and I’d lost the ability to write with my right hand. I’d been to several neurologists including the department head at OHSU. All I got was shrugs and offers of botox injections which had never been tried on forearms at that point. I found Eric in the phone book by chance because he was close to my office. I’ve been a regular patient ever since. He’s treated all my self-induced pains and the effects of aging... I see him at least monthly to let him work his magic.
