      I saw Dr Setzler for neck, shoulder and arm pain. He recommended carpal tunnel surgery. I had the surgery, after which I was dismissed without anything being done for my neck. A few months later I went to the other big orth group in Mobile. In Feb. I had cervical fusion surgery. This is what Dr Setzler should have recommended.

      Dr. Setzler told me in 2005 he saw there was nothing wrong with my back. Since it was a workmans comp injury. Since that time I had complications. I was referred to him again in 2015 now he found something along the spine and neck advised this was an old injury; one he misdiagnosed. If you are seeing Setzler and he says nothing is wrong get out and get a second opinion before your statue of limitations run out. Oh yea, he has very poor bed side manner.
