    Dr. Gold was unable to determine the cause of my pain. Told to refrain from crouching and kneeling, use a topical cream for pain and return if not better.

    Great visit. I though I need surgery. Dr Gold explained the cause of my pain. He reviewed thoroughly the MRI results and offered great resolution
