"I've seen a number of Physicians for this issue. Usually I get the same generalized answer in a very short time " You have this we need to schedule surgery". Dr Daniels is the first Doctor that actually listened to me and explained there are options, but we need to perform some testing that I was lacking in my records and then determine a course of action appropriate for this issue. He did state that I may in fact need the procedure that had been discussed, but we don't need to make a hasty decision. Everything was discussed in detail with Dr. Damiels.I had a very complete understanding of my condition and what testing would be required to determine the best course of action as well as what the possible solutions may be. Excellant experiance. I feel confident that after 10 plus years of dealing with this issue that we are on the right track to finding the best course of care."
