My husband's been suffering with, almost, unbearable back pain for the last year now. An MRI was done where he learned he had two herniated disks, and one bulging. He was put on a 6 week waiting list to see Dr. Obah for cortisone shots to help with the pain. When his appointment came he waiting two and a half hours to see Dr. Obah. Who then insisted that his pain was nothing more than an injury that would heal itself over time.
