    His true concern & candor was a perfect balance for me. His staff was kind & efficient. Every healthcare professional I spoke to and mentioned Dr. Eichholz they would always respond with "best & smartest doctor you can choose." My old symptoms are gone with just a few recovery symptoms that are to be expected at 5 weeks of recovery. Once physical therapy starts next week I'm sure I will be on a good pace to completely normal. I can't say Thank You enough to this practice.

    He listens to you when you try and explain the issues that you are having. He read around a hundred plus pages from other doctors on my issues. Mine happens to be the fourth and fifth disc that causes shooting pain down my whole left leg. I highly recommend if you are having any issues due to your back or even your legs as far as just walking. Do not hesitate to visit Dr Eichholz!

    I am half-way through my recovery period from TLIF procedure by Dr. Eichholz; it was my biggest nightmare that I have delayed for several years, he has been outstanding, professional and has been compassionate. He has saved my life, I have been blessed! Thank you Dr.
