It was clear that the doctor did not feel surgery was the solution for my diagnosis, but it was equally clear that because of that he had no further interest in my plan of care.

First visit so not a lot of time required until MRI is done.

The provider was filling in for my Neurosurgeon who needed to go out on leave. And his total value of input for me was: 1) While your doctor was on the fence I am not - you are not a good surgical candidate 2) That is unrelated to your condition - You are not a good surgical candidate 3) Speak with your Neurologist about that - I will not recommend you for surgery I get that he is a Neurosurgeon, but it was clear that his message to me was you are not having surgery and that is what I do therefore you are someone else's problem.
