Patient Comments (1)
in Dallas, TX |
I had cervical spine surgery in Arkansas and came to Dr. Wharton for post-operative care. He spent time with me explaining my x-rays and told me that I might need more surgery in the future if the bone spurs came back. He was very reassuring and said that he would help me with medications and checkups to see if the bone spurs came back.
