So this is actually where I went for a third opinion. I’ve seen another neurosurgeon and an orthopedic surgeon about a 2 level disc replacement surgery. Other locations made me feel very rushed to get a surgery and I left with more questions than answers. Dr. Phillips took a good long time to review my body’s symptoms as well as review/explain my symptoms’ causes. I felt really at ease at this quant office setting. Mobi-C was originally my goal of seeking a third opinion, but I left hopeful that I might be able to manage these issues without surgery.” – Kevin Ewald
