Dr Pfaffle was a second opinion for carpal tunnel. He recognizes that there are a percentage of people who have symptoms but that tests and treatments prior to surgery don't always respond or even indicate carpal tunnel. He talks very softly and very quickly, which can be hard to understand, but he takes the time to listen to a patient.

I wish I had been given some sort of written instructions or guidelines for use of the brace I was given - like for how long i should wear it each day, do I wear it to bed, etc. I would also have like something that described what I was diagnosed with.
