Ask for Dr. Panico. I've been seeing her only for a few months and she has helped me tremendously. I've been in severe pain for almost 3 years with little to no relief. I've seen multiple doctors over my situation and no one had any answers for me. When I finally crossed paths with Dr. Panico she knew immediately what was going on and put me on a regiment of medication. I'm feeling so much better now. I'm not 100 percent yet, but I know I'll get there by working with her.
