Gemma is feeling much better
Peg and Paul Jackson from Alexandria

Many thanks for taking such good care of Gemma last week. She was in a lot of pain and we couldn't figure out what was the problem. I called AAH and was able to get an appointment that day. Dr. Cohen determined that Gemma's playfulness for her age (15) had caught up with her - and she had an inflamed disc. The medication soon got her back to normal - although we had to make sure she didn't jump on and off the sofa as much. Thank you so much!
