Upon our initial consultation with Dr. James Fonner we found out there were some underlying issues to our pain. They set up a treatment plan and some more x-rays for my wife and also put us in contact with a lawyer. From start to finish they handled our case in a professional but friendly way and documented all of our injuries and treatment.
