Other than nerve damage (which was already present) I feel great. I had been told I had a tumor on the side of my spine. Dr Shanks saw the MRI and said he doubted I did. He gave me three different scenarios, scheduled my surgery. Bottom line about an hour and a half after surgery I was on my way home. If you are looking for a doctor to fix you he is the person I would recommend, if you are looking for someone to hold your hand go elsewhere.

He seemed rush. This was my first visit and went to see about surgery. He did explain the MRI and what he would do but never gave me time to ask questions. If he is going to work on my back, spinal nerves, I want to know exactly what he is doing. I just would like to have asked him more questions and talk to him more.
