"Dr. Rumi explained the results of my MRI so completely and clarified my issue to me in detail. He told me that I did not need surgery and provided me with a referral for physical therapy. In addition, he took the time to evaluate a knee injury that I had sustained in a fall a few weeks before this appointment. He did not have to do this, since he is a spine specialist. He included the PT for the knee on his referral. This also extended to the office staff and nurses/assistants. I would highly recommend Dr. Rumi and the staff at Park Valley in Round Rock."
