I've recently found that my original surgeon has retired and his son has taken his place. I've met with his son and determined that he is not right for me.
I need to find a new surgeon in North West Ohio. One that isn't afraid to take care of their patients right. I also want one that will prescribe things like a sedation before an MRI as I'm claustrophobic, which is something this guy wont do!!!!! In addition, I want to make sure they will help keep my pain level down with meds. Before my last fusion, I went a year without pain meds because the surgeon didn't prescribe before surgery. I'M NOT WILLING TO PUT UP WITH THAT AGAIN!
Please any suggestions you may have are welcome.
