“SCOI is top-notch in every way! Always professional and personable! I have been treated by several doctors (Jaivin, Bawa, and Auerbach) in addition to Doc Niska. Attention to detail and results are the hallmarks of these professionals. I have been a patient at SCOI for ten years. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.”
