“I went to see Dr. Quattro for severe, chronic pain resulting from several spine surgeries.”
After having been under the care of doctors who did nothing but give me cortisone shots, I had lost hope. After a few months seeing her, I experienced a significant decrease in pain—from a 7 or 8 (on a pain scale of 1 to 10) to a 3 or 4 now. Her deep knowledge and sensitivity was so refreshing—and I never felt rushed, I never felt like a case. The sciatic pain in my left leg is gone; I can lift my arm above my head. My appetite has also improved and I have begun to gain some weight.
“Because my body was so inflamed, she advised against eating gluten which causes inflammation. She doesn’t rely on just one approach – she uses western and eastern medicine together, which is very effective. For example, she did a complete work-up on me with lab tests and blood work and found I was deficient in a lot of vitamins and minerals that your body needs to functions. I started taking the nutritional supplements and getting acupuncture and herbs every week. When she prescribes the supplements, she also explains thoroughly what the benefit is so you understand why you’re taking it.
“In researching my pain syndrome, she discovered I had endometriosis and that was the reason for much of my pain. She worked closely with my surgeon to coordinate a hysterectomy. Her compassion and kindness, true dedication and knowledge are beyond any doctor I’ve gone to—and I’ve been to a lot of them. I know I am still a “work in progress” but I now have hope to live a life without chronic pain. And for that and so much more, I thank you.”
