Dr Sawchuck explained the procedure very well. He was interested and attentive! I will recommend him to my friends.
Asked, what was going on and after I told him, he asked me what I wanted him to do about it. I said I don't know, and asked what are the options? His reply still has me stumped. Well I can't do anything unless you tell me what you want done. I thought maybe I was crazy or just being a wimp so I lived with the pain. 6 months later I couldn't barely move. Hospital did an MRI turns out I have been living with a herniated disc that was now defragmenting. Surgery a week later

Sawchuk seemed very knowledgeable in my evaluation, and took time to explain my options, but his office staff are A JOKE!! Took me a month, in a lot of pain, to get an appt because they misinformed me. Then they all left during my appt so I couldn't schedule the injection RX. Next day they would never call me back, and refused to ask the medical assistant for the information they needed to schedule. Hungup on me when I said I'd appreciate them to call me back today. Still not scheduled.
