Our son had a disc repair. My wife had a laminectomy. He has performed a laminectomy, disc repair and fusion on me. We all recommend Dr. Hoover to everyone. He was patient and informative. Very satisfied.
Out of all the doctors I have seen, Dr. Volkov has the best bedside manners by far. He truly takes the time to explain the medical diagnosis, treatment plans, and pre/post-op care. He takes the time to listen to every single patient and answering all questions they might have. I would definitely recommend Dr. Volkov for future surgeries.
He explains your diagnosis and even lets you look at your results on the disc. The only thing I didn't appreciate was when he told me "You don't look like you're in that much pain." Meanwhile, I have three herniated discs and two of them are large and pushing on my nerve roots..
My experience with Dr. Elskens is the best . He was very through and took the time to explain the surgery. Before and after the surgery. He treated me with absolute professionalism. He explained what to expect and his follow up care is impeccable. His staff is helpful and knowledgeable. And they are very friendly and respectful. Dr. Elskens does not make you feel like you don't matter or feel rushed. I would highly recommend him, he is honest and gives you your options.
very satisfied with surgery c 6-7, I was in excruciating pain for months and now feel amazing. Dr. Elskens and his entire staff are wonderful. Would highly recommend
I would highly recommend Dr. Elskens. He explained my back condition in terms I could understand and used evidenced-based criteria. His actions allowed me to make an informed decision about my back health, specifically as to whether to have back surgery.
Dr. Volkov does an excellent job explaining your diagnosis, your options, and things to consider before making a decision to have surgery. He recently performed an ACDF multi-level on me and did an outstanding job.
I highly recommend Dr. Hoover to anyone who may ask me. He is very patient and takes his time with you during your office visit. Excellent Doctor.
He saw me right away, even though another doctor did my surgery AND I live in another state. He called in his rep to check my implant (versus saying I needed a replacement right away). After hours of try to reprogram did not work, he scheduled my surgery for the following week, the week of Thanksgiving! He is nice but very much to the point and did an excellent job. This implant is the only one I have not had problems with. I would highly recommend him. Also, Diane, his nurse, is excellent.
