There was some confusion as to what procedures I was suppose to recieve. It took some time and lots of phone calls and other doctor inputs, but it was worked out with good conclusions. There was definately some confusion in the paperwork and what others thought was to be done. All was resolved and went well after that.UofU Patient September 09, 2013
