Dr. Subotnick really listened to what I had to say and was extremely knowledgable. I've been off work and in pain for almost a year. He was able to help me more in one visit, than other doctors have over the course of 11 months. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is feeling frustrated and like there is no hope. His staff was also excellent and the entire visit was just what you should receive from a competent doctor and staff--though we dont always get that anymore in the rush to shuffle people through.
