I went to Dr. Boyle as a child for VUR. He was a surgeon who tried everything to avoid surgery and eventually I grew out of it.

Review for Dr. Barnes

He read my MRI wrong. He found no disc herniations which I've been suffering from for the past 9 years. I guess the previous MRI's and doctor's got it wrong?
