no leg reflexes

When my primary Dr. was checking my legs for reflexes, he saw there was no reflex in one leg.  He became very concerned and ordered an MRI.  The diagnosis was degenerative disc disease.  However, I went to the orthopedist who said that 'no reflex' is not a problem  (I guess he meant for a senior citizen?)  Right after that, I asked a neurologist about it and he said, "that's no problem."
I have no problem walking, etc. and wondering why the primary Dr. was so worried about it.  Anyone else have
this experience?
