Patient Comments (1)
in Norristown Pa |
I was suffering from horrible leg pains due to spinal stenosis herniated discs and spondylolisthesis. Dr. Meagher first came to me in the pre-op and apologize for not meeting me sooner. He assured me that all would go well which it did he then called me the day after surgery after the post op and apologize again for not meeting us in person. This was impressive in itself. He is a proven professional and I would recommend him highly to anyone who has any type of spinal problems.
