I have had neck fusions and pain in my neck since 1986. I have a very short neck and Dr. Biggs did Surgery on my neck on Feb. 2020 and I have no pain what so ever in my neck. He is a great surgeon. He will not do surgery unless he feels you will have positive results

Review for Dr. Depriest

Dr. Tierney is one of the most compassionate doctors I have ever met. Even better than that, he is a thinker. You can see the wheels moving as he tries to decide the best way to treat the problem. He definitely treats the patient, not just the illness.

He insisted on getting his claws into my dying mother( later found he charged for every visit, trying to convince her to give up and die.) She called him the " death salesman". He lacks compassion and obviously gets rewarded by reducing hospital costs.
