    #149 | I’d Rather Be at a Seminar Than on the Beach ft. Dr. Gerald Vernon

    Surgeries are quick to be scheduled, but are they always necessary? Dr. Gerald Vernon, a leading provider at Comprehensive Medical Care, shares his passion and experience in identifying alternative treatments that save joints without having to go through surgery by taking a comprehensive approach. 

    By looking solely at one injury location, a provider could offer a treatment that just acts as a bandaid because the whole body wasn't analyzed to find additional factors contributing to the pain or injury sustained. In the medical space, it's important to explore alternative treatments that could help you avoid unnecessary injections and treatments.
