Patient Comments (1)
in Saint James, MO |
I am athletic and have developed scoliosis of the spine and some herniated discs. I provided a recent MRI of the spinal region in question and two hip x-rays which by our conversation, it was apparent the doctor failed to review. About 2 minutes into our appointment, he got up to leave with no advice other than, "don't run." I had to press him for details about my condition and treatment options--his feedback was scant and impatient. I will not return--have already found a new neurosurgeon.
