Came to OrthoNeuro as a walk-in in their Olentangy office. Wait was not long - I wa sin excruciating pain. Dr. Whitehead looked at me immediately, got me into x-ray quickly, and diagnosed my problem with exceptional sharing of information. He also ordered a pain shot right in the office, and I was so happy! He sent me home with instructions, meds, exercises and more. He was thorough, kind, treated me with utmost respect and care, and shared information, including next steps. Great experience!
