Didnt have any interest in listening to me. PA was even worse. I felt like it was a bother for me to be there. Spent a whopping 5-10 minutes talking to me. Acted as if it was stupid for me to be there. Very disappointing visit.

Dr Gewirtz was second opinion. So thankful he was referred. Instead of spinal fushion was able to get successful disk replacement. Went so well no physical therapy needed. After 2.5 years still doing great!!!

Huge and pleasant...Read More
