    I was diagnosed with an AVM at the age of 16 years old in 2003. I had three brain surgeries Nov. 2003, Dec. 2003, and Jan. 2004. Dr. Troy Payner, Dr. Leipzig, and Dr. Terry Horner saved my life! I am forever grateful. Each of these doctors exceeded my expectations. Despite two out of the three brain surgeries taking over 25 hours, they never gave up or made any mistakes. When my brain started showing signs of swelling, they acted quickly! I am alive thanks to you! Thank you! - Kevin Barrett

    I was completely comfortable with Dr. Payner from the very 1st visit. He did an amazing job in explaining everything to me on a level i could understand but not as if i were an idiot :) He has a great sense of humor and kind personality. i felt the true care and compassion he has for his patients and i always felt i was in great hands. If i had to entrust someone to operate on my brain i knew it was going to be him. His entire staff was always prompt helpful and kind, esp his assistant Sherry
