Dr. O’Tool is very knowledgeable,professional and experienced. He is aware I want to make informed medical decisions with his help and advice. He always does a great job with this. If I’m going wrong, he will also be straight with me. Totally trust worthy.

Review for Dr. O'Tool

Dr. Cuevas is the kind of doctor who takes time to explain in layman terms. He listens, and gives staight forward answers. He doesn't sugar coat , yet is full of compassion. His staff is also great to work with.

Review for Dr. Crimmins

I've worked with more than a dozen spine surgeons and Dr. Lee is one of the absolute best I've met. His judgement and skill are phenomenal. Remember, a surgeon isn't there to provide emotional support, s/he is there to physically fix a problem
