Thousand Oaks, CA |
Dr. Edelman went the extra mile in seeing if doing a rare surgery on me would be beneficial by having a colleague perform a test at another facility not normally used for cervical problems. My surgeries have lasted countless years......I am truly grateful for his expertise and willingness to try something a little unusual to grant me quality of life. He is highly intelligent so asking him to dumb things down and speak in layman terms proved very helpful!
