Very nice doctor
Ultimately, I have consulted 5 doctors by their reference. But I am still not satisfied or able to resolve my issues. * ***** **** *** ********* **** ***** *** ******** **** ********* They advised a surgery but I was not properly informed about the diagnosis. Without my consent, they sent me a quotation for a surgery which literally frustrated me. I really did not get any proper guidance and it was a very bad impact on my experience.
I am suffering from last month from the pain and unable to walk now.
