Perhaps the reason for choosing these two doctors is that they are the only ones who do assessments remotely or for free. If that is the case then I understand why patients use them........However one unlikely but possible explanation for a doctor who does the first assessment free is a highly cynical one: they provide a diagnosis that leads to treatment they can charge for. I'm not saying j'accuse or anything on any of these doctors. It's just one reason to proceed slowly and with eyes wide open.
Dr. Gilete's office: said:
The evaluation provides a diagnosis and possible surgical solution. The final recommendation is not made until we see the DMX, see you in person, and you as the patient weigh the possibility of improvement of symptoms and quality of life over the risks of surgery and the debilitating nature of a cervical fusion.
