in Wylie, TX |
I had surgery for spinal stenosis in 2004. Before surgery was done several tests including an MRI were done to make sure that surgery was the way to go. This I like this, it prevents doing procedures if they are not needed. Recently I went back, 2016, I have started having lower back pain. After examining me, Dr. Bauer determined that old age and arthritis is my problem. So now I am going to Physical Therapy to help with the flexibility and pain. After the PT we will review treatment.

On my first and last visit to this doctor. When he was suggesting further tests, he suggested to me, that my lumbar fusion from around 2011 might not be healed. He wanted me to have a CT scan to determine if my fusion had healed. I consider this to be pure foolishness!! I would recommend to everyone to DO NOT waste your time and money, on this doctor. It is apparent why he has such low Health Grades.
