i had been told I needed cervical disc surgery by spine specialist and that surgery really scared me so I went for second opinion to Dr. Dobner. He prescribed physical therapy and i went 3 times per week for one month and my neck was painfree and no surgery!! it has been a year now and still pain free. Excellent doctor.

I tore my ACL. Was told that I needed to lead a more sedentary lifestyle. And that a women didn't need an ACL to cook and clean. I am about to test for my black belt in Karate, He told me that 35 year old women are to old for that nonsense. I got a second opinion.
