Comments: Perhaps an odd comment: the man has an excellent sense of humor. This had an immensely relaxing effect, at least on me. His explanation of my problem was concise, supported by clear x ray exegesis. (my problem was severe lower spine stenosis resulting in pain, difficulty walking and inability to stand straight] His conclusion was that at my age of 80 this would soon degenerate to to a more severe surgical procedure than he currently recomended which was laminectomy. The mans self confidence, his reputation and the reputation of Mohawk Valley Associates all led me to a confident YES! The procedure was a piece of cake. I walked out of the hospital four hours after I walked in one month ago. Today I am pain free, walk freely and stand straight. What more could one ask for. I hope that this is an obviously ringing endorsement of Dr Popper.
