Dr Mouw had to do my back surgery because Dr. Abernathy stopped doing medicare patients. I personally prefer Dr Abernathy. I had back surgery Nov.19, 2015 and I have had a back ache since also was left with a drop foot , which all i read about it the doctors fault. So my advise is think about it...more
