in Canal Winchester, OH |
I love this doctor. When we met he was very patient with me and explained in detail what would be the best plan. He doesn't push surgery on you. He always listens to all questions and answers them in such a way that anyone could understand. He is kind, caring and very helpful. He has come to visit me in the hospital when I was there under another physician's care. I could tell more stories of what he's done for me but there's not enough space here.

After the last surgeon put the spinal cord stimulator in on the edge of my spinal cord and it was hitting all the nerves, my back was full of staph. This man saved my life, he is patient and kind and truly cares, he also will do ALL the necessary testing asap
