Patient Comments (1)
in Alexandria, VA |
I had a C2 fracture to my neck in a car accident and was in a neck brace. The neck brace was so that I didn't turn or bend my neck so it could heal, but he said I could drive a car if I wanted to, which made no sense fro obvious safety reasons. He seemed mean spirited and no compassion. I had a large bump on the back of my neck and he would not touch it/me. He brushed off my concerns and was useless when I asked him anything. I need a 2nd opinion because this guy is idiot or doesn't care.
