Re: Thoughts: Determining If A Doctor/Facility Is "Good"

Thanks everyone. Good advice. I realize there are lots of places to look, but in the end I think it partly comes down to luck. I guess I was just looking for others' thoughts on the issue.

I am *very* informed re: my diagnosis (or lack thereof, as it is), and even feel at times I know more than the doctor. I have suggested things and had them say "That's probably a good idea." You have to be in this day & age, and also specifically with the back, which is, just the truth, not know much about.

Wishing everyone well!
