I have a history of lower back injury with 2 surgeries. Lately my pain level has increased past the tolerable state my numbness has been more constant and I had an episode of numbness on both sides of the body. Dr Getter may have looked at my MRI that was taken 13 months ago. He came to the room and started telling me that I was not a candidate for surgery. Never asked me how I injured my self and if I re-injured my self since the MRI over a year ago. No respect for the patient!!
