I want to thank Ancora Pain Recovery. Before finding you I was being treated by the VA for dystonia. I was on 23 different meds and was only given a once a year procedure. I thought I was going to die, and I wanted to die. Since coming to Ancora Pain Recovery I feel as if my life has taken on a whole new direction. Dr. Campbell re-evaluated my medications, talked to me about procedure options and introduced me to physical therapy (mechanical diagnosis & treatment) and massage therapy to help combat the symptoms of dystonia.
I recently began acupuncture treatments with Dr. Campbell. Never having done this before, I was a little apprehensive, but very excited at the possibility of an additional means of pain relief. Before scheduling the initial appointment, Shannon, the new patient coordinator, was very helpful in answering all my preliminary questions. Once the treatment plan was in place, she offered to coordinate my feedback communications (emails) with Dr. Campbell. This has made it so easy to keep him informed of the requested post-acupuncture status and to get his guidance for continued progress. I commend Shannon for her professional, helpful attitude--something I feel I don't see very often these days. Also, I want to say how kind and comforting Dr. Campbell has been during the acupuncture sessions. He shows concern for me as a patient and has performed the acupuncture to provide much-needed pain relief. I look forward to continuing through this process in my new adventure.
Dear Chris Whitmore, Thank you so much for being so kind and understanding. You were really the first therapist who made me feel like you really understood chronic pain and how frustrated I was. You really care. You were absolutely right in that the McKenzie Method would relieve my pain and that working with Gary was going to be the best thing for me. It is amazing to me that for almost 30 years I suffered with constant chronic pain and that in the 2 weeks we worked together using McKenzie there was an immediate improvement. Then to come back in January and work with Gary; I really didn't believe him when he told me that we would probably only work together 4-6 weeks and I would be all better. I thought, yeah, right!It took a little longer but I am happy to tell you that I am 90% pain free 90% of the time. The most amazing thing is that when I am in pain, I now have tools and knowledge I can use to get out of a pain cycle AND stop it if I do what I know I need to do. AMAZING! Thank you for helping me get my life back.
Pharmacist, Glara Seo was so helpful in getting my prescription filled. I had a problem with my insurance company not wanting to cover my prescription when I changed doses. Glara took the time to speak with them on the phone several times over a few days and finally got it approved. I am so thankful. When it was all taken care of, I just wanted to kiss her! I can’t tell you how much it meant that she went above and beyond; she treated me like I was her only customer!
