Mary (NP) and Dr. Zuckerman were both very thorough, explanitory of my exact condition, with options and recommendations for physical therapy now (to strengthan muscles, etc.) and in the future if scoliosis pain levels increase.

I was asked more questions by the PA than the doctor. He seemed much more interested in me as a patient. The doctor took it for a given that I was there for a surgical consult and then spent the entire time talking about the seriousness of the surgery and the preparation, even mentioning that one of his patients had been paralyzed after the surgery because the bones had not properly been strengthened beforehand. I think he could have skipped that story.
