Saw a couple other Dr.s for severe upper leg pain. I met with Dr. Garner twice and he scheduled lower back surgery. Woke up in recovery with no leg pain. I feel better now than I have in several years. I would not see anyone else for back issues. He and the office staff are extremely professional and friendly.
