    in Arlington, VA |
    Not only am I still in severe LBP a year-plus after surgery, Dr. Kader was misleading in his pre-surgical consultation regarding my insurance coverage. He told me personally there could be an issue, but that if he 'rewrites the scrip'(sp?), it shouldn't be a problem' in terms of the microdiscectomy being covered. Lo and behold, 1-2 months after surgery and I'm holding the bag for the entire cost, over 10K. I'll update if his office comes around but as of now, no rec no way.
