First Visit to Dr Faunce knowing I didn't need surgery for my NECK now. Told him about the slipping herniated discs in my neck and I believe I have a pinched nerve at T5 in my thoracic which makes my back muscles spasm everyday causing migraines! I just wanted to know the extend of my injuries before I have to go to court in a month. I told him I accidently found a 9mm legion on L3 by taking a ct scan a week ago. I went to him because of the pain in my NECK and Thoracic, and he sends me to take xray of lower Lumbar!!! He never heard a word I said in my whopping 5 min office visit! Would NOT recommend this Doctor!!!!

I have been suffering with stabbing lower back pain that radiated down my R leg into my foot. I was receiving pain management for approx 2 years with some relief from injections and low dose opioids. I know they get a bad wrap but with strict supervision and not abusing them they do help dramatically with controlling pain. After 2 years I went to Dr Faunce. He reviewed my mri's and said he would be able to help relieve my pain. We scheduled surgery for Dec. 26th 2018. Great relief! Thank you!
