    I would not recommend Dr. Kasper. He seemed to have no interest in my case or my back pain and recommended that I "keep doing what you are doing". If doing what I was doing would work then I wouldn't have been there in the first place. There are many orth doctors in Des Moines that are more than willing to take the time to help when Dr. Kasper won't.
