Head and Jaw injury
When I was leaving a restaurant , I was strucked on the left side of my head with a tray carried by a waitress. Taken to hospital by ambulance and was diagnosed with a concussion. Several days later my jaw was giving me sever pain. Found Mr Yoss and he excepted my case and took it to a most satisfactory conclusion.
