Dr. Goldthwaite is a good straight speaking informative Doctor. Even when the prognosis is upsetting. I would use him today. Because of his suggested plan of action in my case. I have been Surgery free for Seventeen years, and that is not the norm. I do my part, stay active, watch my weight and Exercise as suggested and live a full life again. Thank you Dr. Goldthwaite for everything.
