Dr. Yang is familiar with my case. This allows me to make references to pain areas without a lot of background which he already knows. We talked about treatment options, wanted my thoughts and we agreed as what the next steps would be. He even noticed I was wearing a purple shirt because he remembers that I'm an LSU fan. That speaks volumes to me in his attention to detail especially concerning my back issues.
