It's been a while and I thought I should update you. I just spoke to Dr. Stark. He called me from the MN State Fair. The Sacroiliac Society has a booth there. (Are they presenting medical info or selling cotton candy?)

His office continues to impress me. Everyone I send is very pleased with the thorough exam, ease of communication with Dr. Stark, and his VERY helpful staff. What a breath of fresh air.

It's interesting that when I went out there, he seemed very reluctant to adopt ADR... hadn't been proven yet. We had some very lively discussions when I was there and in the weeks that followed. He was pretty blown away by the crew we had at our dinner (above).

He called me in June. He was at the airport in Denver. He had just finished the ProDisc-C class and had ridden to the airport with Dr. Bertagnoli. The exchange in both directions about ADR and SI joint dysfunction and the new fusion techniques must have been amazing. In the following weeks, Dr. Stark attended the ProDisc lumbar class in Dallas. I'm pleased to have participated in bringing him around and look forward to hearing more about his experiences as he does more and more ADR cases.

All the best,
