Review for Dr. Knudsen

Dr. Wulff has performed two successful surgeries on my lower back. He is professional, compassionate, and treats me with respect. I appreciate how he communicates so that I easily comprehend the procedures. I highly recommend Dr. Wulff to anyone needing spinal surgery!

Review for Dr. Wulff

I've had two appointments with Dr Battaglia and have been very satisfied with both. He takes the time to listen to my concerns and explain what he sees and what he recommends.

Review for Dr. Battaglia

After one month I`m back in Tokyo walking with a cane. Getting better. But the leg aches and is a little sore. Does this improve? Hard to sleep without a pill. The doctors in Tokyo I`ve shone the X-ray to commend you on a good job.

Review for Dr. Greenky

Dr. Damron did my hip replacement which was even more involved than a hip replacement. Dr. Damron and the staff are always professional and friendly. His Nurse Julie is also great and deserves her own mention here.
