Had a followup visit after spinal surgery. The surgery was a success -- I no longer have sciatica. Dr. Hoski took the time to review the correct way to do my personalized yoga routine. I appreciate his attentiveness and helpfulness.

A gentle patient Dr who wreaks with confidence. Reminds us of EF Hutton - When Dr Hoski talks - you listen. Wouldn’t hesitate to return or recommend.

Review for Dr. James Hoski, MD

This is the best doctor in the USA. If you ask a question you will get an answer. I couldn't hardly walk. And two days after surgery I was walking and now 8 weeks later I will be hiking and hunting the wild boar back in my mountains. There is no better back surgeon in the country.
