I would suggest Not seeing his PA Laura, but waiting for an appointment with Dr. Fogelson.
Physician Assistants are not required to have as much education as a doctor. Furthermore, I would request a CT Scan. A CT scan will show soft tissue and bones. A x-ray only shows bones. @sarany

In my experience, other doctors would not see me because the Mayo is so well known and my back surgery was preformed at the Mayo Clinic. After I was moved from Pediatrics to adult, I chose to see Dr. Fogelson, a neurosurgeon at Mayo Clinic. My surgery was preformed when I was still in Pediatrics — Not by Dr. Fogelson. I love Dr. Fogelson. Dr. Fogelson is kind, caring, and honest. Keep in mind an Orthopedist focuses on bones. A neurosurgeon focuses on the spinal cord, spinal canal, and nerves. I would avoid surgery if I could. After my spinal surgery, I am in constant pain. I have coccyx pain, a purple and cold left foot, costochondritis, nerve like pain in my ischial tuberosities, ridicculopathy at L3 and constant back pain. Dr. Nassr comes highly recommended by other staff and doctors at Mayo. Dr. Fogelson comes highly recommended by patients. I would ask you to think about everything a surgery can effect. What are the pros and cons? A surgery is permanent. A spine is very delicate and is connected to many things. Each part of your body is connected and wired to other parts of your body. I will also say that the Mayo has often figured out things that Nowhere else can. @sarany,

@bernese53 Who cares for you is always your choice. You are in control of your body. Ask for Dr. Nassr to write an internal referral to whoever better fits your needs or Contact neurosurgery office and tell them you want to be transferred. Or have your general doctor request whatever specific doctor you want. However, I will say Mayo processes requests made by other Mayo doctors faster . 507.284.2511. It is important you feel comfortable with and trust your doctor. Talk to Nurse Jane or the Medical secretary for Dr. Fogelson.

I would definitely seek a second opinion that is not at the Mayo Clinic before I decided to do surgery. In my opinion, once you do surgery at the Mayo Clinic, it is hard to get other doctors to even consider you as a patient.

Have you tried less invasive methods like Physical Therapy or Massage? I will also say that the Mayo has often figured out things that Nowhere else can. @bernese53

My back surgery was done by William J. Shaughnessy at The Mayo Clinic. T10 to L5 was fused. @bernese53
