In an initial consultation 10/16 Dr. O offered to review my lumbar spine for potential revision surgery. I have several serious conditions and numerous previous opinions. He asked for records from my 2002 failed fusion. It wasn't essy but he got them in one month. Gave up after 6 months and...Read More
