Multiple MRI's, Gore told me if condition worsens I should have surgery Back worsened to the point that both legs collapsed & I blew my knee requiring major surgery, yet Gore still said we shouldn't do back surgery? Last appt. I sat in a wheelchair for 74 minutes past my appt. time, only to have him speak with me for 4 minutes. I then had to wait a hour in pain, for transport to make its way back to me A "polite" complaint got me threatened to be dropped as patient by office mgmt F Grade
