SHC Patient, Apr 2014

Dr. Sheena Aurora goes above & beyond the needs of my care in migraine control. A true asset!

SHC Patient, Apr 2014

2 lines can not cover it! Within 20 minutes the doctor knew the disease I had. I have had this for 7 years & was misdiagnosed. Mostly, to be treated with such care and respect was a miracle!
