Dr. David Reviews
I treated with Dr. Thomas David, TMJ/TMD Specialist, who provides non-surgical treatment. After a very detailed initial visit, with x-rays, and written instructions on do’s and dont’s to help TMJ, he referred me to TMJ Physical Therapy. I learned so much about what was causing my excruciating jaw pain, jaws popping, jaw stiffness, and headaches, and how these specific exercises are designed for significant improvement and preparation for wearing the oral appliance, which was ordered once PT was completed. My appliance is working great!! I am very excited, because I have had years of jaw pain and headaches, with nothing that worked, until I saw Dr. David. I wish I had found him sooner. And, his office staff is also awesome.
This is a 1st class business. The staff is authentically kind and helpful. Dr. David radiates skill and deep knowledge. His assistant Michelle is beyond 'good'. I asked her to help me with a paperwork issue that requires several steps to complete - and I needed it immediately. The way she handled my request was better than I could have imagined! (Thank you, Michelle!) I've chosen Dr. David as my TMJ specialist, and am so grateful to have found him!
