Patient Comments (1)

in Lexington, MA
Dr. R took time to show us and explain to us in great detail the MRI results, why surgery wasn't needed, under what circumstances it would become necessary, etc. He advised us to allow the body time to heal itself before doing something that my husband would have to live with for the next x# years....more
