Patient Comments (2)
in Demotte, IN |
Dr. Dietz inherited me as a patient in pretty bad shape after nearly a year of being misdiagnosed by another Dr. who ultimately told me "I would be permanently paralyzed. I needed to come to terms with that" Dr. Dietz clearly described what my issue was and what my options where and what was the likely outcome of each. I opted to have Dr. Dietz perform a discectomy and single level fusion. After about only a month 1/2 I am much better and very hopeful for my future. THANK YOU! A+
Thank you for your feedback, Mark.
