Gail Ann

Profession: Health Care
Doctor: Winston J. Warme, MD

Briefly describe your symptoms and the medical condition that brought you to see the doctor.

I had been in a car accident 6+ years prior and a MD in Spokane finally identified the problem - no surgeon in this area would even look at it. He referred me to Dr. Warme. My medial clavicle would float out towards my throat and override the sternum causing constant headaches and pain.

What one or two things stand out to you about your experience with your doctor and their team?

I saw the PA first and she did a thorough review and then I saw Dr. Warme. He was the fourth surgical person I saw and he 1) knew what the problem was and 2) knew it was difficult to impossible to live with due to decreased function and daily pain.

Dick

Profession: Retired
Doctor: Kushagra Verma MD, MS

Briefly describe your symptoms and the medical condition that brought you to see the doctor.

After two previous failed back surgeries, I was referred to Dr. Verma. After reviewing my history and scans, he didn't want to proceed with another surgery until other options were exhausted. I was referred for physical therapy, which was not helpful, and it was then Dr. Verma scheduled surgery. He first caged my L-3, and then removed and replaced the hardware going from L-4 to my sacrum, which in turn increased the curvature in my back from 9% to 22%. This reduced the stress on my sacrum and relieved my pain.

What one or two things stand out to you about your experience with your doctor and their team?

I immediately felt comfortable with Dr. Verma. He is skilled, honest, compassionate and kind.
Dr. Verma was very thorough explaining the surgery process, and always gave us the time we needed for questions and concerns.
