I have been seeing dr Williams for many years I find him to be very professional and informative. He was so good with me that I moved my father from his old dr to dr William and within a couple of months he was doing much better and is continues to getter better with each month. Love him

Review for Dr. Chirumamilla

I've been seeing Dr. Van for 9 years now. He had done 3 surgeries on my neck, with great success. After surgery I was pain free for 6 years until I got rear-ended recently. He has a great bedside manner and really knows his stuff. Would recommend his to anyone with spinal issues.

Review for Dr. Vanichkachorn

Dr. Van never looked beyond my back when I came in with groin/leg pain. I could have saved myself months and months of trauma if my hip problem had not been misdiagnosed. Rehab and recovery time after my hip replacement surgery (done elsewhere) would have been quicker as well.

Review for Dr. Allen Jr

If I could give negative stars I would. I wasted my time and money to go to this specialist, and I left there with absolutely nothing other than I'm sorry but I don't have a solution for you! He offered absolutely nothing.

Review for Dr. Baker

Waited over 2 1/2 hours to see this physician who then spent most of the 5-10 minute appointment talking about himself. He wanted to rush me into a procedure; so I went to a different doctor who actually asked questions about me! No procedure required.
