Don’t Guess, Get the Help You Need

spine-xrayMany patients come to us after months or years of testing, guessing, and hoping that their problem would simply go away.

When it comes to back and neck issues, there’s never a good time to guess. Not only can this result in additional harm, but it also holds the patient back from living their best life.

Here’s a note we recently received from one of our patients:

“I was referred to Dr. Sharma for consultation after months of tests, guessing and additional tests by my PCP. My visit with Dr. Sharma was short, merely because he’s brilliant, diagnosing my spinal condition immediately.”

There are a couple points worth noting here, including the fact that it shouldn’t take months of testing to pinpoint the problem. Furthermore, it’s often necessary to consult with a specialist in order to receive an accurate diagnosis.

With this particular patient, we were able to quickly diagnose his condition, schedule him for surgery, and provide the necessary guidance in getting him back on his feet as soon as possible.

Your health is too important to “guess and hope for the best.” If you’re suffering from any type of back or neck injury, get the help you need.
