Since seeing Dr James my Dad is now significantly more mobile and his balance has improved immensely, and my Mom has started hitting tennis balls against a wall. My sister and I are truly amazed and we haven’t had to speak with the insurance company. They’re admin has handled everything. It’s really been unbelievable. Ty!!"
