Neurosurgeon that disagrees with an Oncologist. So another two years of daily Chronic Neck and Back pain! Advise to others, If you want answers and relief. Find another Neurosurgeon! Speak Louder to be heard!

He comes off as very quiet and not very personable. His bedside manner is not great. However, the man is a genius and really knows his stuff!
