Good talk, and I had a list of questions. I honestly don't remember now who exactly I talked with, so forgive me - no face to attach to the conversation. I am still puzzled about the pain around the Grtr-Trochanter bone, bursitis or no? Why does it hurt there so much? Actually a bit on the other side too. But I am motivated to stick with the PT exercies - I am pretty much making the exercises up as I go now, trying to drill down into where the tightness and weaknesses are. Wish all communications were't remote, but for now that is what it is.

Very knowledgeable. Very kind. Answered all my questions. Even showed on my MRI where my problem was in my spine. So thankful my doctor and PT recommended him.

Dr Sales explained everything about my back problems that I still had after surgery and was informative about what I needed to do going forward.

A little late starting. Mr. Brown was good, explained things clearly, and helpfully used his pointer to help me understand what is going on in my spine.

Dr Sales was very professional and comes highly recommended. I would give 5 stars with the exception of the lady at the front desk. Extremely argumentative on phone and in person. I did communicate this with Dr. Sales other staff members.

I had a new patient consult with Dr Sales and his PA Sean earlier today and both were very good and answered all the questions I had today. His office staff the receptionist and his MA were great too. Dr Sales and Sean never seemed rushed. Thank you so much for your time

I wouldn't let ANYONE ELSE touch my neck or back. Dr. Sales is amazing. His team, with Assistant, Cindy, and PA, Sean, is knowledgeable, helpful, and quick to respond to questions or concerns. I would highly recommend him for any spinal problems.

My first Zoom meeting with Dr. Sales' PA was very productive and informative. I left the meeting with a clear plan of action from the PA, and I'm awaiting insurance approval to proceed with diagnostic studies.
