What makes her practice unique (found with ...

I have suffered for over two years with plantar fasciitis. Some days were so painful I literally could not stand on my feet. I tried chiropractic adjustments which helped minimally, and my MD only offered pain pills. NO THANKS! A friend referred me to Dr. Soto and my only regret is not coming to see her sooner. After two prolozone ...

Dr. Soto took the time to get to know me during my visit. She used the history forms I had completed and applied it to my session and the plan for healing. It drives me crazy when doctors do not review all the forms they ask you to complete. Not sure the purpose of the forms if they are going ...

About 6 months ago, Dr. Soto recommended her Prolozone Injection Therapy, for my severe neck pain. It was 2 sets of injections, approx. 2 weeks apart, with visits 2-3 days afterwards for both. The injection site was numb that night and I had to take it real easy for a couple days; but after that - nothing. No pain or ...

Highly recommend. I've seen Dr. Soto for allergies, hormonal issues, and UTI's that wouldn't go away no matter how many courses of antibiotics I took.
