Pain ChapalaMedHe came all the way down from Canada because he was not getting a diagnosis or treatment to alleviate his severe pain.

Hello Dr. Hernandez,

My name is Melissa and I am Randy Glasel’s wife.  I wanted to write you and offer you my most sincere thank you for taking Randy on as a patient and helping us to come one step closer to having this long term issue resolved.  As his wife and a mother to two very young children watching my husband and their daddy go through this has been extremely difficult on us.  It has been a long and challenging road and at many times it left us wore out and just very sad.Now thanks to your quick thinking and willingness to dig a little deeper we finally have a diagnosis.  How can I begin to thank you enough for helping our family.  Randy has peace of mind after having been told by many other doctors that it was all in his head.  His concern has validation.
God bless you and the work that you do.  If I am ever in Mexico to see my father I will step in and personally thank you as well.
Many thanks again.
Melissa Glasel
