Review for Dr. Gittins

I didn’t feel he or his PA really listened to me. It seemed like they didn’t want to bother with me. I did not get any answers, pain relief or any treatment.

Review for Dr. Rohl

Dr. Todd gave me excellent service. I was walking same day of back surgery with no pain. It’s been a little over 3 months still pain free. I cannot thank him enough. I highly recommend Dr. Todd if you are needing surgery he is the best there is. I’ll be forever grateful!

Dr Gittins’ office gave me a same day appointment because of severe leg pain. Quality of service was outstanding just as I remember during my hip replacement 13 years prior. Highly recommend.
