Listened carefully to my concerns and explored my own atypical theories about my complicated symptoms, and how they related to the extensive nature of my previous injury. I believe my input was valued and studied, and we quickly came to an accord on a plan of treatment. I was given accurate and timely information about what to expect in my recovery process, and how to maximize my results. My recovery has been nothing short of a miracle.
