“Dr. Zhou, you are simply brilliant! I can’t truly express my deep heartfelt gratitude for your dedication to your practice, the kindness towards patients with professionalism unmatched. You stopped what felt like an ice pick which was going through my eye to the back of my head; basically you stopped me from going out of my mind insane. With my light sensitivity and sound issues, I had to walk around with an eye patch, double sunglasses, earplugs and a hat. Your recent treatment has let all except one pair of sunglasses go.”

“Dr. Zhou, you are a proficient professional man who takes his pain management specialty to heart and from my heart to yours, thank you again. I would recommend you and your pain management office to any person in need of a specialist to get rid of pain in either the Gainesville or Lake City location. The medical solutions, surgical treatments and alternative therapies used have allowed me to leave my home to do normal activities. You have made my life livable, something not even imaginable a few months ago.”
