Absolutely professional and perfect!
in Los Lunas, NM |
In in July 2004 Dr Metzger performed a fusion and spinal diskectomy L-4, L-5 I woke up from the surgery in so much pain.I got a left foot drop and neuropathy in both my legs and feet. Wheel I told him my symptoms and he said it would go away. I went back for my six week follow up I told him I was still in a lot of pain he didn't believe me and sent me to his associates my next appointment. I am still suffering with a pain that never goes away.
