The Doctor did not go over the results of my tests or answer any questions. He asked me if I had any questions, and I did, but I felt like I was inconveniencing him with my time so I asked what his suggestions were first. He offered to give me an epidural, to which I declined due to the FDA warning against using epidurals, and then he offered a supplement treatment which has not done much to relieve pressure or pain. No discussion of alternatives. My whole appointment lasted less than 10 minutes and cost a ridiculous amount of money. Doctors get paid to give epidurals.

Was extremely accommodating. I thought I had an Appointment, but they had not received my paperwork; However, Dr. Roofian was on his way out the door, and turned around. He saw me right away, and immediately got me started on my path. I feel confident in his understanding of my fears and ready to face the challenges ahead.
