    Dr. Dal Canto was very thorough in explaining my condition. He helped me to understand what was going on and what all of the options for taking care of it were. He made sure that I understood what was the anatomy of what was happening. He went over both my MRI and my x-ray with me. Showing me exactly what was going on. He had models in his... in the room so that... of the back so that I could see what exactly was wrong with my back. I appreciated that.
