Review of Dr. Thurmond


I caution all those with any excess weight before seeing Dr T. Actually, I caution all. Consumer beware. My pain management Dr sent me to Dr. Thurmond with the suggestion of a Spinal Chord Simulator trial. My previous Dr. did not perform them himself. Dr, Thurmond thought that the SCS was a great idea but decided to refer me to another doctor as he personally wouldn't do it because of my weight. He really had an awful bedside manner. After Chronic pain for 20 years from a car accident which over the years my weight has risen to 250 lbs due to the inability to sustain an exercise routine due to excruciating pain. I felt that I was being punished for my disability. He also wanted to refer me to a nutritionist (which was fine) but when I got the phone call for the appointment, it was to see a bariatric surgeon. That was just rude and NOT appreciated. I did see the Dr that he referred me to and the practice was shady to say the least and I have since found a new Dr. Again, Consumer beware.

Review of Dr. Kager


What a gifted surgeon! I would highly recommend him and his team for your needs. I questioned going to him do to some reviews saying how he has no bed side manor but the final line is He’s the best, and if you want someone working on your spine, you want the best, and Dr Kager is the best. To those who complain all I can say is that He’s a surgeon, not your caregiver, he’s not there to hold your hands and promise you rainbows & lollipops. Don’t make a mistake and see anyone else!!!!! Blessings

Review of Dr. Kager

- in lebanon, PA |

I was having serious upper leg pain and surgery was recommended by Dr. Kager. I had the surgery on a Tuesday afternoon and was discharged Tuesday Evening. If you follow the doctors and staff directions for recovery you should do well. It was a lifestyle change on some daily functions but I got through it and I am currently walking without pain in my legs. Sure it may take some time to get back to a normal routine like biking and hiking but all good things take time!

Review of Dr. Kager

- in Lititz PA |

Dr Kager is always pleasant and on time. He gets right to the problem. No unnecessary chit chat. The results of both my cervical fusion and lumbar fusions are terrific. The pain was gone immediately in both cases. We are blessed to have surgeons of this caliber in Lancaster County. Thanks, Doc!

Amazing Results! Thanks Dr. Kager! My burning leg pain was gone immediately! It took 2 months for most of my leg numbness to subside, and I am pain free!!!

The worst experience and excuses of why my back surgery failed. I was told by three other doctors this is considered a failed surgery. highly recommend another doctor.

Review of Dr. Thurmond


I went to Dr. Thurmond under a referral and couldn't be happier with the results. 9 months after surgery I have ZERO pain and have already run a 5K! My mobility is high, my quality of life has returned and I have Dr. Thurmond to thank for it. He really did turn everything around for me. He's not one for drama - rather, he likes to focus on the problem and how to help with it. He's a busy guy - very in demand - so cut to the chase and give him the facts. I owe my very active future to him.

Review of Dr. Monacci

- in Lancaster, PA |

I had a great experience with Dr. Monacci and all of the staff. Reading his bio and talking to others that used him gave me a lot of confidence in his ability thats why I chose to go to him for a second opinion. He was very professional, respectful and I got the feeling that he genuinely cared about me. I would highly recommend him.

He was very helpful. Awesome surgeon. At first I thought he was unfriendly but then I realized that he is a very busy man. My surgery went well and I had instant relief with no pain any longer. Great job doctor!
