Doctor Heres and his team are amazing. This was my first visit to the pain clinic (my husband had great success with his pain relief there) I had been suffering for many weeks with even a visit to the ER at UPMC Passavant. Today 30 hours after my visit I feel the best I have felt in a month! Thank you Dr. Heres!
