I really like Dr Currie. He takes time explaining things to me in a way that I understand. he is never rushed

The doctor and staff was both wonderful, they listened to the concerns i had and scheduled a cat scan right away, aware of my allergies to the cat scan dye. I went for a second opinion and he asked lots of questions and showed concern for the pain I was having. Talked about possible resolutions pending the test results. He acted on the concerns I had with the pain being there for six months and prior surgeon not taking and concerns for the pain. He never once put the prior doctor down and said he would help me fix the problem if need be.
