Patient Comments (1)
in College Station, TX |
I was referred to Dr. El Nihum after having an MRI that showed that I have a herniated disk that was pressing on my nerve root causing right sided leg pain, no reflexes, numbness and causing me to fall. Dr. El Nihum explained the procedure, examined me and scheduled me for surgery as soon as possible since I am in hurry to return to work. I will write another review after my surgery but for Now Dr. El Nihum has meet all my expectations.
