He spent less than 5 minutes in the room with me & never asked me 1 question. He looked at 1 MRI scan that I had brought & basically said everything looks good. I have multiple problems with mydiscs& had surgery on my neck (fusion c5-7) on his note to my orthopedic doctor he wrote no surgical structures were found on c spine and everything looked good. Had he actually looked at the scans he would have seen my surgery. His office was getting ready to close so I feel they were pushing me out.

he never told me what my results were, just a bunch of laughing and giggling

I have already recommend him. He is very professional with an extremely quick and clever sense of humor. I was also in the Air Force and in the medical field.I respect the fact that Dr Gorum served!
