Dr. Clingan diagnosed incapacitating pain after lower back surgery. My surgeon referred me to her. After taking time to listen to me, she changed the locations of prescribed injections from my lower back to my SI joints. Immediate relief. I had to have ablations on both sides as the shots wore off after a few weeks. If she hadn't diagnosed my problem correctly, I wouldn't be enjoying a relatively pain free life for the past six months.
