Patient Comments (2)
in Columbus, OH |
Dr. Duffey was very understanding of my pain. He took a lot of time explaining my xrays and suggesting steps I could take. I chose to see Dr. Kim at his suggestion as there are some questions about the condition of my lower back and then decide if I needed an MRI. I have psoriasis so, therefore, my pain is probably psoriatic arthritis which shows in the xrays.
