“They were very friendly and professional. Dr. Mendelis was easy to talk to. He was not in any hurry to perform surgery. He told me the steps needed to help me and checked me over. I didn’t feel rushed. We are now waiting on approval for the much-needed MRI. I hope my nightmare of being a cripple and in pain will come to an end.”
