    The worst "doctor" I have ever had. I have had nothing but complications since my surgery and he REFUSES to check it out. In debilitating pain and still unable to work. Some days I can't even walk! He just says he "did his part so I should be fine now". Clearly I am not. Got a second opinion and doing new scans to disprove this hack. Hope no one else ever sees him again!
