Had an mei over two weeks ago. Was told to call the office a week later. Dr. Cartright has had results for 10 days now. Talked to his nurse 3 times. She said she spoke to him and my results are on his desk. Called again today and still no word. If he is that bad on giving you your. Results how good of a dr is he? Going to call tomorrow and tell them I will be coming to pick up my MRI results. I will find another dr.

Dr Cartwright performed 3 major back surgeries on me! He is an excellent docto . He listens - truly listens, takes time to explain test results, possible treatment plans and surgical possibilitie . He tells it like it is... He doesn't push for surgical intervention, but if that's what he feels is necessary - he will explain the pros and con's and the benefits vs potential adverse possibilities. He is very caring and compassionate. He did an excellent job with my very messed up back!

I have been a patient for over 10 years. Always extremely capable. Great discussion when you ask more questions. He definitely suggests pain medication/physical therapy/exercise before suggesting surgery.
