How many times will I need to see the doctor?
The speed at which the human body heals has many
variables. Delayed presentation, poor diet, little to no exercise,
stress and other medical conditions can influence the rate of
recovery drastically. Each case must be carefully evaluated to
determine how to treat most effectively. The frequency of your
care depends on your specific presentation. Our physicians have
treated many different conditions and in many cases, can give
you a good estimate of the amount of care necessary prior to beginning
treatment. Back to Top
