My Foot feel like 100% now…Thanks so much Dr. Papadeas!

CH Chandler, AZ (Golf Pro)

 I just finished my fourth prolotherapy treatment at Desert Health Specialists for my lower back and I feel like a new person! I have seen other Physicians who either recommended surgery or said I would just have to live with the pain. Thanks to Dr. Papadeas I am now able get back to the things I enjoy doing!

Dr. Fox – Just wanted to take a minute and thank you for all you have done. The treatments for the shoulder tendonitis were spot on. Normal day to day activities are pain free. Best of all sleeping thru the night is not a problem anymore.

PS: Finished 3rd at the Tucson Scottish Highland Games!

These PRP treatments are amazing! My knee has never felt so good! I am able to run and exercise now like I use to! Thanks Desert Health Specialists!

My sentiments of gratitude are immense, and my words of praise are abundant, for the “magical” treatment I received from Dr. Nathan Papadeas and Dr. Joelle Fox, after suffering a sprained ankle and a torn tendon while playing soccer. In no time, my disabled ankle returned to full functionality, and the strong pain that I had suffered all throughout my injury, rapidly dissipated, to never return.

I would highly recommend Dr. Nathan Papadeas and Dr. Joelle Fox to any person who has suffered an injury and is seeking caring, professional, excellent, supreme doctors, with an impeccable history and reputation of proven and most successful results.
