I would not recommend this doctor. On my first visit after a lumbar and thoracic MRI he informed me that there was nothing wrong with my spine. I developed extreme pain for about 5 months. He referred me to pain management organization. They failed to return several calls. I went back to him and requested another MRI. He resisted that request. I insisted. The second MRI showed a large herniated thoracic disk and severe spondylosis in s1 to L5. I simply lost confidence in this doctor
