Felt the doctor did not fully review the MRI's or Report provided. He offered nothing as to repairing my spine or addressing the spinal cord impingements. No response when mentioning that sitting or laying down causes extreme pain. He did ask his staff to assist in locating a doctors appointment for my knees. But, this, in my opinion, should havr been anticipated, based on my coorespondence and the MRI's of full spine and both knees. Also, no response to my comments regarding lack of vision in left eye.

At some point I may need to go forward with a surgery and without a doubt I will in trust that to Dr. Savage.
