Dr Underwood took the time to listen to my concerns and thoroughly explain the procedures he recommended for my spinal injury causing nerve pain and numbness. I appreciated the fact he was not quick to suggest surgery, but rather explored less invasive options first. In the end I did elect to undergo surgery and am pleased with my results. I am approaching 1 year since surgery and by following his advise on exercise/PT, I am now able to fully enjoy all activities and hobbies I enjoyed before.
