Interviewer Hi, sir. What is your name Larry My name is Larry Shine SP. Interviewer All right, Larry. Today is May 29, 2013, and you’re at Arkansas Spinal Care and Neuropathy Treatment Center. Why don’t we start off by having you tell me why you came to this clinic Larry One of my classmates, number one, gave me a phone call one day and said Larry, have you seen this ad I’ve been seeing something on TV, a Doctor inaudible 000026 over in Conway, Arkansas, that supposedly can do something to help you with your neuropathy.
Problem. So she called me back and gave me the phone number. So I immediately made a phone call, and the people at the doctor’s office sent me a package in the mail inaudible 000044. I received it within two or three days. I went over the information, and then I immediately made a phone call back and made an appointment to come by to see what they could probably do for me. The good news is that my cousin and I came over and I had the opportunity to meet Doctor Curry SP. We discussed my situation, that I’ve been suffering with neuropathy.
For a little bit over a year and a half because of cancer that I had, which was Stage 4 cancer, and I’m a diabetic, which caused my sugar level to rise, which resulted in me having neuropathy. And some of the symptoms of my problem are feet, my lower leg, and my hands. I can tell you this, today is my second day of treatment. I could tell, believe it or not, last night, the first day back home, I saw some positive results of the treatment that I had on Tuesday.

It’s amazing. Number one, I’m walking better. I forgot to use my cane yesterday and last night by the way. I’m getting too much confidence I guess. But anyway, I’m very proud of the fact.and some of the things that I’m feeling in my feet and my legs last night when I was asleep, I think are positive signs that maybe blood circulation is prevalent, is gonna happen, is imminent rather. And I’ve got a feeling that after a few more treatments, it’s very possible that you will see, I will see, a.
Tremendous amount of improvement in my condition. But I’m very pleased with the staff here. I’m very pleased with the doctor. You’ve got some very capable, professional people here. I couldn’t ask for a better service than what I’m getting now. I mean, it’s like family it’s a family affair. And when you come over here, and I will highly recommend that if you’re thinking about getting some type of a service and treatment, and you want a doctor, you want a staff that’s really concerned about you and treats you like family, this is the.
Place to go, right here in Conway, Arkansas. Interviewer Thank you, Larry. That is awesome. I mean, really. Wow! Thank you. The one thing that I wanted to talk about for sure is, so many of the patients who have neuropathy, they come in here and they talk about their sense of balance and the fact that they fall, or they stumble a lot, or they don’t have sure footing, or they trip a lot. All those kinds of things go with neuropathy because they don’t have the correct sensation down.
In their feet. It can make them feel like they don’t have good balance. Would you go over what you told me a little while ago about that, even after your first treatment Larry Right. My equilibrium has improved as of yesterday. Like I said earlier, I’m walking now really without the cane. I feel a very good sense of balance. Normally, when I get out of bed in the morning, I takes me like a minute and a half before I can really get my balance, before I can walk maybe into the kitchen and get my coffee ready or whatever.
The case may be. This morning when I got up, I got up this morning, by the way, around 430, and I didn’t have to stand up more than 30 seconds before I went and ventured on and made my coffee and then set my bath water and all that type of thing. So I have seen, in other words, a big reduction in time as it relates to when I get out of bed. Because normally, when you lie down, that’s when I normally have problems with my feet and my legs, where I would get.
Cramps at night. And I would get up in the morning and it took me a little while just to get going. But I think after that first treatment, and I think I mentioned that to the doctor first thing this morning, I did see some positive changes regarding the downtime as it relates to me being able to walk. And I expect even better information forthcoming as related to my situation, because I can see it already. I can’t wait, when I leave here today.matter of fact, I’ll go hit the golf ball today. I’m gonna play some golf and I’m gonna see.
How my balance is today on the golf course, and see how that goes. I can see a big improvement, doctor, in my balance. Interviewer Thank you. Yeah, you actually mentioned on your first day here that you’ve played golf extensively. I mean, you’re like a bigtime golfer. Larry Yeah. Interviewer Will you tell a little bit about your golf history and background Larry Well, I’ve been playing golf since 1972. I started playing golf in Farmington, Connecticut. I was district manager for General Motors in Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts. A lot of the dealers there introduced me to the golf game. Working for GM for 30 years.
And for Buick division of GM, I got a chance to meet Tiger Woods, and Tiger and I are pretty good friends. I played golf with John Daly, Bob Tway, Alan Doyle, Payne Stewart. I played golf with about seven different pros when I was area manager in New York. I was area manager in Long Island, Brooklyn, and Queens, New York in the ’90s, 1993 to 1997. And therefore, being the area manager, of course, I got a chance to play in the ProAms. So I got a chance to build a really good rapport with guys like Tiger and Davis Love III and.
Those guys. They know me. Steve Elkington and all those guys. They’re all good people, they’re all hooked up with a lot of automobile agencies and things like that. Ben Crenshaw, he carried the Buick bag for a long time. So anyway, I got a chance to meet a lot of those guys. So that’s where I got a passion for the game, and I live on a golf course in inaudible 000643. So when I leave here today, that’s where I’ll go. Get the little white ball I call it the little fella. I got to hit the little fella.
Today some time. Interviewer Yeah, well, then here you are. Today is your second day of treatment. You walked in the clinic without your cane this morning, without the use of your cane, and then here you’re going to hit golf balls this afternoon. Larry Right. Interviewer Awesome, man. Well, thanks for doing this. It’s gonna help a lot of people, and we really appreciate your testimony. Larry I want to thank you and your staff for the conscientious effort that you guys are putting forth for all of the patients, not just myself. And I can see it. By the.
Way, I also had a chance to meet a lot of the other patients, and we have a good rapport going on right here. People see me now, they come over, we start talking, we start talking about our conditions, etc. We try to talk about various symptoms that we may be experiencing that are common. So those are the kind of rapport that you develop when you have a place like this. Like I said earlier, it’s like a family. Interviewer Thank you. Larry I appreciate it. Interviewer Thank you so much.
