Greetings: Letter of Reference for Dr. James Tate Neurological SurgeonFor over 3 years I labored with progressive stinging back pain and radiating pain in my legs. As my pain issues accelerated into agonizing night pain and extended mobility problems which prevented me from even walking to my car, I talked to my Doctor in Redding California, Dr. Andrew Solkovits . After a complete examination, Dr. Solkovits diagnosed me with having spinal stenosis. He ordered an X ray and MRI and confirmed my condition. At that point he presented me with a recommendation; it was that the only way to get back to health was for me to consult with a neurological surgeon.Of course I asked Dr. Solkovits, who is the best person to see, should I go to a major medical center? His immediate reply was, Dr. James Tate is the best person who I could find anywhere to do this type of operation. He is in Redding and he is a top Neurological Surgeon who he has recommended many patients to. Let me say that Dr. Solkovits is not just my Doctor, he is also a close friend for over 15 years.
