Hi,

Just wondering if anyone has seen him- I've seen his name mentioned a lot on here and what they thought after their first consult- especially if anyone has "minor" curves.

Also wondering what to expect during my 1st consult. I have been having shoulder/shoulder blade problems recently too- can I expect him to look at that as well?

I really don't want to drive all the way down to San Diego just to hear yah you have scoliosis but not bad enough to operate on so continue your days with pain and we'll monitor it.

Any advice/information even if you visit was with a different doctor- just what to expect on how thorough they should be.

Thanks,
Tracy

Any idea of what your curves were the last time you had a scoli exam? Drs. don't usually recommend surgery until the curves reach about 45+ deg. Maybe you should try to locate a dr. closer to you for an initial exam and see what they have to say, then you can decide if you want/need a consult with another dr. You can check www.srs.org to locate physicians in your area.
