Took my medical history, examined me, was very patient. We discussed my options in a objective manner with positive and possible negative aspects of treatment. His staff, especially radiology, went out of their way to be helpful.

Didn't seem to understand that I was in pain as a result of bulging disc even after an MRI and multiple office visits. It didn't seem like I was important enough for him to worry about. I was totally dumbfounded and now am looking for someone who is competent.
