Told me my symptoms were all in my imagination and trying to challenge my father in an arguement of his findings when my father said nothing to provoke his actions causing more emotional damage than he did anything. This was several years ago and I had a spinal fusion done by J. Kevin Kaufman who is way more professional in my opinion. I guess it wasn't in my head.
