I’ve been a patient of Dr Centeno for over 8 years. I have nothing but the highest complements for his professionalism, insights and overall care. Diagnosed with severe cervical spondylosis over 9 years ago, his semi-annual injections have kept me nearly pain free and clearly helped me avoid a multi-level cervical fusion, at least for the time being.
