St Charles, MO |
Not good. We had to go to another doctor to address a back issue that that was clear on the MRI.
in St. Louis County, MO |
Very good. Provided various options before surgery.
in O'Fallon |
He did a microdiscectomy for me and I had immediate relief. That was 5 years ago and I'm still fine. I've gone back a couple of times when I fell and landed on my back and he's been honest and didn't rush to surgery. He has a quiet and solemn demeanor, but if you're serious and ask questions he'll answer them all well. He's also treated both of my in laws and they're doing great too.
