    I'm a 72 year old male, so I have seen quite a few doctors in my lifetime, but I have to say, I just had the best consultation ever with Dr Albrecht. I have several lower back issues, & he brought up my MRI on his monitor, & went over my entire lumbar area in great detail, showing & explaining to me all of the different issues I have. I originally went to see him with thoughts of trying some new procedures I just recently heard about, & with his honest approach, informed me that I wasn't really a candidate for either procedure. I would definitely recommend Dr Albrecht at the UCSF Pain Management Center
