On 03/30/2015 , Dr. Macias operated on me . I had all but1 herniated disc's in my upper back . This was an emergency situation. Three days prior I had woke up with a "stiff neck" or so I thought. I had waited 3 days before finally going to my local hospital & only then I went as the pain had increased to an unbearable level. They had me transferred me to St.Luke's Mil.Wi. Where the Dr. was at that time. I will be forever grateful to Dr.Macias for the excellent job she did on me & I recovered
