    Dr Harned has certainly been a blessing to me and my family. I was unable to walk more than a few steps w/o having severe back pain. He figured out the problem and with an accurate diagnosis treats me with TPI/Botox in those muscles. Within 3-4 days I have my life back! I think I'm treated as he'd want his family treated. We are so thankful for Dr Harned.
