Meet Barbara

Back Pain (Piriformis Syndrome)

Barbara experienced nerve pain in her leg for over a year, which forced her to visit several physicians and specialists for multiple tests and complicated surgeries. But none of them were able to put an end to her constant pain—or even determine a definitive diagnosis. Using the Expert Opinion service, Barbara connected with a leading expert who gave her a clear diagnosis and treatment plan. She says, “Dr. Wang was the first doctor I’ve worked with who was finally able to make some sense of my medical experience. With all of my records in one place, he was able to see what happened and provide clear directions on what my next steps should be.”


“Before, I felt like doctors were just trying to manage the pain. With Grand Rounds, they were actually trying to correct the problem.”
