Patient Comments (1)
Des Moines, IA |
at first I felt confident with the Dr, but after I didn't have the results he expected I was dropped as a patient. He didn't delve deeper into my back issues. He stated I was inoperable and there was nothing else to do. My family Dr got me to see a surgeon in Iowa City and luckily the checked farther up my back and neck. I went into emergency surgery. If I had waited longer to find out the reason for the pain I would be a paraplegic.
