Dr. Ryan, He is an incredible surgeon and Dr. of— OD's do this roughly: manipulation of the musculoskeletal system, surgery, and very sparingly used drugs. A rough definition: The study and treatment of disease and physiologic dysfunction grounded in a disordered musculoskeletal system. Basically that's from Wikipedia, and its important because this doctor cares about you, your wellness, your spinal conditions, and you as a person. He helps me sooo much! Thank you for everything Doc!!!

Dr.Ryan listened to me and thanks to him he found a tumor in my spinal canal 20mm. Dr.Ryan also listened to me after the hospital said that my neck was fine. Dr.Ryan sent me for a MRI and my neck wasn't ok. Dr.Ryan saved me from being paralyzed! I still have problems but Dr.Ryan has tried to address each problem from the damage the tumor caused me. Dr.Ryan is professional and a compassionate Dr ever!
