Alexandra Sanders, Brooklyn, NY facet injections
After two years of severe back pain, I sought out Dr. Wyss for some pain relief. He had great bedside manner and, unlike other doctors I had met with, he diagnosed the exact cause of my pain and explained the measures I should take. When the day of the first procedure came, he ensured me that it would go flawlessly. During the procedure, he talked me through every step of it.

It was successful, and he followed up immediately. Dr. Wyss called me to talk about pain options moving forward instead of making me come into his office and miss work. Dr. Wyss and his office staff were always easy to reach, flexible and seemed to sincerely care about my pain relief. I had two facet injections done by Dr. Wyss and both went very well and gave me the relief I needed.
