He installed an adjustable shunt and placed the valve in the wrong location. It was also adjustable and was adjusted wrong for over 1 year with Dr p. Refusing to check it leading to an year of suffering due to his prideful nature.

Dr. P and staff are really great. They are friendly, courteous and professional. Some of the non-medical office staff could use some improvements but overall a great practice.

Never heard of SI JOINT FUSION until I had it done. I just wish I had it done 10 years ago. Good doctor to talk to so he understands what you need.
