"3 Months post surgery and on my 43rd birthday, I completed the Rugged Maniac. Before my surgery, I was in so much pain I struggled to make it through the day. Fortunately, I was referred to DISC and had the pleasure of being taken care of by Dr. Abrams. Dr. Abrams is more than just a Doctor, he took as much interest in me as he did with my health." -Wayne Dietsch
