The whole staff at Dr Esce's office has went well beyond their way to be of help in addressing my back problems!
We couldn't have had a better Doctor in my time of need!
I've been blessed to be cared for by all of them!
Dr Chittum is a knowledgeable doctor and very professional. The office lacks good front desk and scheduling people. Good luck getting appointment, even if it's a post op appt. And good luck getting a return call. Your office employees make or break your office....being in medical profession for over 20 years, I was disappointed.
Dr. Esce DOES NOT need my testimony; his trade is his art, more than a "spine Doctor" he is a healer. A man that knows his trade, compassionate, efficient, I was plagued with herniation of disk and straightening of spinal canal for years. Fear of my first operation and a touch o vanity kept me in a decade of pain. placebos and cortisone shots. Operated, problems are gone: small incision, no stitches. Within hours, I was walking. pain free. This "Mensch" is a 5 stars! Sam de Mattos, Jr.
I saw Dr. Esce in August of 2016. He was very professional and I appreciated the fact that he didn't want to do surgery on my back because there is not a guarantee that it would get help in the long run. He suggested pain injections.I was a new patient and he stated that every Friday pain injections are given in the office just call his nurse and she would set me up to get one. I have called and left messages but I have yet to get a call back. So I just wonder how important patients needs are !
Before going to Dr.Smith with the many chronic health related problems I have,I was made to fell like what I was experiencing was all in my mind. Being a cancer survivor,having fibro and several or chronic issuses I knew better! Dr.Smith listened patiently,did a complete examination and set a plan in motion quickly! He made me feel human so to seak again! Finally!!!! I have a physician that not only hears my concerns but LISTENS! His sense of humor is AWESOME! I am very thankful for him!
I saw Dr. Mccorkle back in 2006 and highly reccomend him ..
He is a very caring doctor and doesn't rush to perform surgery.
Personable, but sometimes rushes in and out. Not enough pain relief for my problems--severe osteoarthritis, nerve damage and muscle spasms, 5 spinal surgeries and double knee replacements. Pain level still 5--7 daily with almost no activity; 8--10 when active. Too frequent drug testing for an established patient, and his nurse's attitude not pleasant. Have tried PT, acupuncture, relaxation, TENS-and would like him to exploe other options.
I was operated on in October 2013. Low Back problems,, Dr. Esce performed a laminectomy. Recovery was fast with pain controlled 5 days after surgery with 600 mg Advil. Recovered and was released for work December 5th, 2013. I would recommend Dr. Esce to all my family, and friends.
I would definitely recommend Dr. Esce to everyone. I have had neck pain for 5+ years. After my first procedure I woke up 24 hours later feeling great!!! If you are suffering with cervical arthritis and bulging disk you need to visit this doctor!
Surgery went swell. Pain alleviated. Unfortunately, anesthesiology supposedly caused urinary problems that led to me being on a catheter for 2 weeks. Not nice. And then ... 6 weeks after surgery another pain came to be. Don't know how. Never will. Perhaps therapy. Anyway, Dr E recommended another surgery to pin transfer process. Not ready. Decided to rest for 6 months. Hoping it will heal naturally.
Like most, the P.A. seemingly are more involved then the Drs. Guess so more surgery can be done
