This review is an enthusiastic 5 stars.
Could barely walk from torn ligaments injury, 24 hours after Ozone and PRP, gained near full strength.
I came into Dr Lee’s office with severe pain and weakness in my left ankle from a basketball injury I suffered approximately 6 weeks before (3 torn ligaments). The best gauge of my injury was the exercise bike, and before going to Dr Lee I was unable to do it for more than 5 minutes, after which I would get a sudden onset of pain, weakness, and swelling that would force me to stop.
I elected to do ozone injections on the advice of Dr Lee, and decided to do PRP as well because if its good enough for Kobe Bryant I figured it was good enough for me. In order to do PRP Dr Lee drew my blood, put it in a centrifuge, and then prepared it to be injected. It was pretty neat to see this procedure in action, as I have read about it for years and always assumed it to be outside of my price range.
Dr Lee numbed the ankle and warned me it would hurt a little bit. The injections lasted less than 5 minutes. Dr Lee told me the ankle would swell for 24 hours, but that I would begin to heal much quicker and would be feeling better shortly.
THIS WAS QUITE AN UNDERSTATEMENT: 48 hours later I got on the exercise bike, 5 minutes passed by, then 10, 20, once I got to an hour my ankle still experienced no pain. It felt miraculous almost.
So the bike test has been a resounding success. In terms of walking, I am able to go farther distances with little discomfort. I now am even able to do some lite jogging. I am mentioning this, because the timeline I got from my orthopedist had lite jogging 6 more months down the line.
In summary I highly recommend Ozone and PRP therapy administered by Dr Lee. I am so happy with my results, and I still can’t believe how what looked like a chronic and long term injury has turned into an almost fully healed injury in such a short time frame.
Lastly I would like to highlight how the whole office experience at Optimal Health and Wellness is awesome. The staff are kind and welcoming, and very well informed. The Dr saw me at the time of my scheduled appointment (this is becoming so rare these days!), and payment was reasonable (a down right bargain given my results) and seamless. And Dr Lee has excellent bedside manner and high EQ. He really cares for his patients and it shows.
