St. Louis – May 25, 2018
Dr Andrus is one of the first doctors to listen to my concerns and explain my options. I was classified by 5 doctors as in inoperable. Dr Andrus knowing my 16 surgery history has operated 2 times on me and has given me my life back. I couldn't say he's a 10 because he is a 100 in my book. God Bless
