Do not see this doctor unless you are an athlete with a serious injury requiring surgery. I herniated a disc and tore a ligament, neither required surgery. He advised me that the best course of action was to exercise and lose weight. I wear a size 12-14 and am not obese by any means. He was dismissive and totally not helpful. I didn't go to the doctor for a painful back injury just so I could be body-shamed.
