    Following a liver resection owing to cancer my son has been stricken with extreme pain that has at times resulted in hourly morphine injections. We sought out Dr Lieberman after becoming dissatisfied with the treatment he was receiving and being told there was nothing more that could be done. Dr Lieberman immediately came up with a number of alternative ways forward and was caring and responsive in ways that we had not previously experienced. In the situation we were in we did not expect miracles but Dr Lieberman has done more than we expected and I would recommend him to anyone suffering from chronic pain
