I am so sorry that you feel that your visit was not up to your expectation. My staff and I strive to provide patients with a good understanding of the diagnosis, as well as the options for treatment. It is quite important to me that my patients know their treatment options and make informed decisions. I always make sure to let my patients know that surgery is usually not absolutely necessary or "needed," but is an option to help improve their quality of life. I'd be happy to discuss further.

He doesn't ask you any questions on about your situation but meanwhile you wait over an hour to be seen. He has done it to me twice. I do not...more
