Regarding the diagnosis of arachnoiditis
    Now Offering:

Independent Medical Examination

An extensive 3-5 hr physical examination, review of medical records and discussion with Dr. Aldrete followed by a written report. 
The report can be used for various medical or legal reasons like dealing with health or accident insurance, workman’s compensation, disability, continuum of medical care, case evaluation and meeting with attorney or simply, just to have piece of mind with respect to the diagnosis.

We believe that if you are reporting symptoms consistent with arachnoiditis, your pain is real, debilitating and systematically degrading the quality of your life. 
We believe that you are suffering through many sleepless nights, wondering, worrying and looking for answers.

Most importantly, we believe that the pain is not in “your head”

Call (800) 978-0068 or (205) 968-0068 for information.

No representation is made that the quality of medical services to be performed is greater than the quality of medical services performed by other doctors.
