2014 was the worst year of my life. Turned 67 and felt 87. This was the year I was told I had stage 4 kidney disease. My creatine was 3.89, my GFR was 16, my urologist said I should remove the prostate and my nephrologist said I would be on dialysis sooner or later. Wow, what a bunch of cheery bastards all with a pat on the back and a warm “I really care” facemask.
Some friends told me about Dr. Hino. I wrote him about my condition and he wrote back within 24 hours with an encouraging response. Two weeks later (I had to get through Christmas and new years) I drove down in a rainstorm with a temperature of 103 and with the knowledge this was the only hope I had. I met Dr. Hino the next day and immediately knew I was in the right place. After a few minutes of talking with Dr. Hino I was inspired and looking forward to the future. I really felt that I was in the presence of greatness. After two weeks of treatments I went home feeling much better, having much more energy and health. When I went back in six weeks my creatine had dropped to 2.1. My latest blood test in the November it was down to 1.6. I will continue on until my numbers are better than before I got sick.
I have referred several people to Dr. Hino. Everyone who went has improved. Those that did not go, I wish them well but I’m sorry that they did not get to experience what I and others have experienced.
Dr. Hino is one of the few individuals, let alone doctors, who cares more and delivers more than would ever be expected. He has given me a new life and I am eternally grateful.
I endured several months of chronic knee pain.
My right knee had a sprained ligament and large meniscus tears; probably not new. It was difficult to walk. I needed a handrail to walk downstairs. I started having more and more physical problems; balance deteriorated, strength declined, slept poorly, tired all the time, trouble working.
It was getting worse and worse and nothing was helping. Physical therapy, exercise, taking anti-inflammatory pain pills, and multiple weekly chiropractic adjustments provided only minor temporary relief. My orthopedic surgeon suggested stronger painkillers and Cortizone injections; surgery could just as easily make things worse due to age and the arthritic deterioration in my knee.
Treatment at the Hino Medical Center began September 2, 2015. In less than two weeks I had near miraculous improvement; almost no knee pain and good mobility. Since then I’ve had one short follow-up visit.
Three months later: knee has continued to improve (about 90% of normal), no joint pain, occasional minor muscle soreness, strength and energy regained, sleeping well, feeling great, enjoy working again. And, the arthritis in fingers, ankles and feet significantly improved!
Prior to treatment, my future looked pretty bleak; no longer! The Hino Medical Center treatment totally changed my quality of life. Getting treatment there is a pleasure; the staff is friendly, efficient, and expert. Quarters are immaculately clean. Dr. Hino is in a class of his own and has my eternal gratitude for his tireless and effective efforts to help people attain wellness.
I took my 74-year-old wife to see Dr. Hino because she was falling apart!
In her younger years she had tuberculosis. On top of that she has been smoking for 60 years, has emphysema and now has severe COPD. In other words, her lungs were shot and her coughing was incessant. Then combine this with swelling in her knees, arthritis in most of her joints, losing 15 pounds in six months that brought her below 100 pounds and you end up with a very miserable person. Every few weeks, something else was going wrong.
In fact, the last four years have been hell on her. No energy, in pain all the time, and really the only thing she was able to do was be on Facebook, watch TV or lay in bed in her room. She couldn’t walk without assistance and wasn’t mentally alert enough to drive.
Having heard about Dr. Hino, we figured “Why not? We have nothing to lose.”
Within eight days of treatment: the coughing was reduced by at least 50%. My wife was walking on her own again. The swelling in the ankles reduced. The pain from arthritis reduced. She had more energy and was actually doing things. One evening she volunteered to go visit some of my family. It had been years since she had volunteered to do anything with family any evening! And she was healthy enough to begin driving again.
Though my wife is not “cured”, as there is no cure for old age, I can definitely tell you that her quality of life has vastly improved.
And for this, she and I are extremely grateful to Dr. Hino.
