Patient Comments (4)
in Palmyra VA |
I was in severe pain and could get no relief. Dr. Messinger suspected I had a herniated disk and ordered an MRI. When I went to UVA emergency the second time, I told them Dr. M had ordered an MRI so UVA did one that night. Dr. Messinger was right and I had a severe herniated disk. I was then referred to a surgeon who removed it and now I am fine. Without his help it would have taken much longer to get someone to do something. Dr. M is very compassionate and listens to you. I love him!
