    I really liked Dr. Cartwright until my last surgery I had with him. I proceeded to tell him how his staff made me feel when I asked for pain medication. The day before my surgery, his staff was grilling me like I was a criminal. After bringing this up to the dr. his whole attitude toward me changed and drastically. He never came to see me in recovery, or after I was in my room. After telling the nurse that I wanted to talk with him, he came in yelling at me. no letters left

    I cannot recommend this physician highly enough. Specifically, he took the time to properly diagnose the source of chronic back pain caused by an auto accident in 2007. Then he performed injections of PRP (platelet rich plasma) using my own stem cells that gave me the first real, lasting relief since the accident. Dr Cartwright really listened to my input. He is equipped with the latest technology and is constantly updating his own knowledge on the latest medical breakthroughs.
