Dr. York got 1 star b/c there is NO option to give him a 0 zero! while in hs care I ended up having 4 back surgeries between the dates of 6/15 & 9/15. I had a Neurostimulator implanted. 2 leads placed next to my spine. After that 1 of the leads slipped. He did a 2nd surgery to put it back in place. After that fluid accumulated & was drained off the battery. In ended up w/ MRSA & had the entire system removed at my cost. I ended up actally needing a Spinal Fusion. I could write on & on
