Review for Dr. Nelsen-Freund

My recent appointment was a follow up which prompted a change in medication. I credit a healthy life to Dr. Jorgensen’s awareness and councel.

Bruce Zacher Sep 21 2021

Review for Dr. Jorgensen

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
