I should have made it clear In my earlier review, the DR is the one who kept canceling and rescheduling NOT ME. Her office had all kinds of reasons why. Till one day they said “oh we can’t say”. ????????

Dr. A. Waguespack has saved me twice from being a parapalegic. Lower spine surgery about 8 years ago, after being bedridden four months, inserted rods & bolts & I was up walking soon after operation. Oct2017 Dr. Waguespack saved me again from being parapalegic-several vertebrea about to pierce my spinal column. She fused C3,C4,C5,C6,C7,T1&T2. Wear neck brace & Bone Growth Stimulator part-time now, & am healing slowly, but have good range of motion. very little pain. She is God's Gift to Me!
