Best Surgeon So Far...

Saw Dr. T as a second opinion for a lower back injury because my first surgeon just didn't care. I found out that I needed surgery on my neck as soon as possible or I could of been paralyzed. Something that the first surgeon never bothered to address. Dr. T did the neck surgery and so far, it's successful. I won't see anyone else. I'll stick to Dr. T.. he cares more for the patient than anything else..
