Dr. Godfried was late 1 hour and 45 minutes, didn't apologize, there was no real introduction or proper greeting and when he read the existing x-rays that were in the system he provided us with an erroneous calculation of the spine's deviation. Upon my husband's request he concluded that he made a mistake and that the spine deviation was different that the one he calculated at first.
