      I have seen Dr. Wahlig periodically over 3 years. He has consistently taken the time to consider my symptoms, review test results, and present diagnoses and options. When we finally got to surgery time he was again thorough and explained the procedure in detail. He is patient with questions and good at follow up.

      Refuses to do my surgery & am not clear as to the reason why. Basically told my only option is to stay on pain medication the rest of my life.
