    He misdiagnosed me because he did not actually read my MRI's (I had about 4 before I went to see him). He simply read what the MRI tech wrote in their analysis and gave me a misdiagnosis. He told me (before I got a second opinion) that I had a rare condition that could lead to paralysis and that I should limit working out to light things like walking or swimming. I waited several months before I was able to get an appointment for a second opinion, and they told me that his diagnosis was WRONG.
