Patient Comments (2)
in Los Angeles, CA |
Doctor spent 10 minutes with me. Told me, a patient in my 20s, to live with back pain. He said my pain will get worse over time. Told me to stop working out. Didn't offer a solution.
in California |
Dr. Park initially cared for me during an acute episode of spinal stenosis. I have congenital stenosis aggravated by arthritic and degenerative changes in the central canal and foraminal areas at a few levels. He was companionate,caring and most of all he was knowledgable and conservative. He moved to so.cal. From where my treatment began, if I progress from the stability I've gained I will likely make the trip for his expertise ! Dr Jeffrey T
