Patient Comments (2)
Kalamazoo, MI |
complete botched spinal stimulator and refuses to assist with correcting . totally unprofessional once the procedure was botched.
Portage, MI |
He didn't listen to my symptoms or concerns about them. Talked over me when I tried to ask questions. Told me that I will be in pain for the rest of my life and there is nothing he could do about it. I had significant changes in symptoms but he said it wasn't important that my back pain went from 1-2 to 7 on a near daily basis.
