We are neither employees nor agents of The Cleveland Clinic Foundation or University Hospitals Systems or Any Other Corporation, Hospital System, Hospital or Physician Group. We are engaged in the Private Practice of spinal medicine and spinal surgery. We offer independent 'OPINIONS' and always encourage all of our patients to seek additional second and independent opinions regarding any evaluation or treatment recommendations. We will offer specific additional referral sources upon patient request. In that situation we make what we believe to be the best choice for the patient given the underlying spinal pathology and available alternate referral sources.
Patients are still always encouraged to seek out their own referral sources as well.
Like any other treating physician these are only Opinions.
