Hello, I thought I would update this for those that may have been interested. I did go to my first appointment with the clinic on on 6/17/14. I was there for over 2 hours for the intake doing the intake, urine test, etc. I did see a doctor that day and he took the time to talk to me and go over my testing from my previous doctor from 2 years prior. They scheduled me to do a updated MRI and sent me home with medications and a follow up appt. to review my MRI and to start a treatment plan based on what the test read.
I had my MRI on 7/1/14 and my follow appointment was yesterday, again the doctor spent a long time with my wife and I answering all our questions and explaining the results of the MRI. The outcome is I am going to have to have surgery on my neck and shoulder first with physical therapy after that surgery, when i am healed from that they are going to start dealing with issues in my lower back and talk about surgery for the possibly as well.
I am waiting on a call to set up a date with the surgeon for a consultation and a surgery date. And I have a follow up appt with the clinic again in a month.
I appreciate those who took the time to respond to my post originally, as of now it seem this doctor truly want to help me.View Thread
