I was attempting from the "git go" to make an appt to see some experienced Dr in your spine dept that could give me advice and counsel on my persistent and worsening back problem which was first diagnosed here in Vero beach just after the calendar flipped. After receiving this diagnosis I visited with a Dr Datta, a specialist at the "Back Center" in Melbourne whose advice I was attempting to corroborate, (2nd opinion), by sending you a copy of the MRI that was originally ordered up by my orthopedic surgeon prior to my visit with Dr. Datta Instead of seeing and talking to a reall live surgeon I was referred to a computer arranged face to face with a young woman who I understand was a Dr.'s asst. (PA) who unfortunately, because I was given the wrong fax number, never rec'd a fax which contained almost two pages of my recent, and I think relevant, health information that may, had she had this info, have helped her understand my problem.information
