I sought a third medical opinion from outside of the VA regarding whether or not to have a third cervical spine surgery. Dr. Gordon Preston listened to my concerns and showed me what he saw on the MRI then offered a very detailed opinion of both pros and cons which I didn't get from the two previous opinions. I was very pleased with his professionalism and would seriously consider using my other insurance knowing the large copayment I'd be paying out of pocket to have him conduct my next surgery If/when that time comes.
