*Dr. Stevens listened carefully to my reason for seeing him. He thoroughly explained why he could not treat my leg-foot problem. He referred me to a friend in neuropathy dept. I appreciated his help.

The doctor was OK, but I did not get a great explanation about my back issue. I was offered the ability to see some kind a guideline, which I didn't do but wish I would have. The doctor did give me a reference to a shoulder specialist and I am appreciative of that
