I saw Dr. Vaela after suffering with the most intense back pain of my life. I had just left work in tears from the pain. Dr. Vaela listened to my symptoms but did not order any tests to get to the bottom of the pain. She prescribed some steroids and muscle relaxers. After a month of continued pain, I saw another doctor. She ordered an x-ray, then MRI, and we finally got an answer to my back pain. I had two bulging discs in my lower back! I suffered for a month because I trusted Dr. Vaela's diagnosis. Very bummed!
