I’m writing to you to thank you for helping me improve my health and life. I’ve been dealing with neck and back pain, as well as migraines since 1990. When I was just 21 years old I had my first c-spine surgery. So, since I’ve been having spine problems and pain over the last 23 years, I’ve been to 5 different pain management in the last 23 years before coming to you. I’ve been from my hometown of Freeport, Il., to Rockford, Minn., to Sterling, Il.. Every doctor I went to tried different approaches, but none worked for the long term, until I came to you Dr Li. You have no idea how much you have helped me improve my health and also improve my relationships with my family. Before coming to you, I was frustrated because my treatment I was receiving from a previous doctor was basically masking the issue of my spine problems, not trying to find out the origin of my spine problems. The doctor would prescribe pain killers and muscle relaxers, which I did appreciate because I was in terrible pain, but I knew this was a short term fix to my problems. When I came to you, the first thing that I really liked was that you wanted to get to the origin of my pain a.s.a.p. and you ordered all the tests needed right in the first visit. Also, you don’t give medications that are not needed and you don’t give them in big quantities or for long periods of time. That’s where my family comes in because with you teaching me what I need to do to help my pain, I spend so much more time with them. I didn’t miss any holidays this year for the first time in years because I feel so much better under your care. I don’t have to spend 3 or 4 days a week in bed because of my back or migraines. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking me as one of your patients. I knowhow lucky I am because I talk to other patienst in the waiting room and they also tell me how much you have helped them and they say they don’t know what they would do without you. Thank you for taking the time to read this and being an awesome doctor!
