The pain I experienced on my feet prior to this treatment was horrendous. I am now pain-free.

I have had diabetes since 1996. I am 51 years old, and for the past year, I have experienced severe pain on my toes and feet. My primary care physician diagnosed me as having neuropathy. He said I would have to live with the pain.

In October, I was bitten by a spider on my big toe. The wound would not heal, even after two treatments of antibiotics prescribed by my primary care physician. I then made an appointment with Dr. Silvester. He was able to help me with the spider bite. It has now healed. He also diagnosed me with neuropathy. Dr. Silvester explained a procedure in which he has had an 80% success rate. (Neurogenx with injections). My therapy includes injections twice a week along with electrode treatments on both legs.

I am extremely pleased with the results. Since starting this treatment, I have not had any pain on my feet at night. I also have more sensation on my legs. The numbness has dissipated. This is an outstanding treatment. The pain I experienced on my feet prior to this treatment was horrendous. I am now pain-free. thanks to Dr. Silvester.
