He listened to what I had to say, then carefully explained the options available to me. I believe the information he presented to me concerning my severe spinal stenosis problem was accurate. What convinced me I made the right choice in seeing him was that he did not immediately recommend surgery, but suggested I try steroid injections. After he looked at the x-ray taken while I was there he showed them to me and we both agreed that trying the steroid is my first best choice. He then was able to schedule that procedure for tomorrow-and that doctor is on the same floor.
