Fowler, Oh |
Awesome doctor, awesome staff. He found and fixed a failed fusion that was missed. I was told there was nothing more to do, I probably had permanent nerve damage, & I could get a 2nd opinion if I wanted. His staff friendly & never made me feel stupid with my questions & always called me back & made sure I understood everything.
