If I had to describe Dr Cordova in one word it would be AWESOME. On July 24th 2017 he performed a Fusion on my lower lumbar region. Prior to that date I could not put 15 Steps in front of me. Hours after the surgery I was doing laps with the help of a walker around my Hospital floor PAIN FREE. The hospital staff was amazing and top-notch. His office staff and nurses are wonderful to work with. Not that I want to but if I had to, I would do it all over again.

I have been seeing Dr. Cordover for several years & think he is great. In those years he preformed a shoulder surgery & a back surgery. I currently have 2 bulging disks in my lower back & a spinal fusion would have to be done now. Dr. Cordover has always been very honest by telling me I am not a good candidate for this particular surgery so we don't want to do it unless it is absolutely necessary.

I have been experiencing back pain and sciatic attacks for many years. My previous ortho doc would only do blocks,said back surgery was not the answer for me. I visited Dr. Cordover and he explained what he saw on the xray/mri and what could be done about it. He explained it was a serious surgery but I was a good candidate for single fusion. He explained my options and surgery was scheduled. I am 4 months out and I am better than I ever have been. Not pain free, but much better.

Dr. Cordover is very kind and caring! He takes the time to sit and listen and go over test results and options! He did back surgery on me 2 weeks ago and I would recommend him to anyone experiencing back troubles!

I really like Dr. Cordover, he fixed my spine problem and feels great, he kept me well informed as to the condition, what he did, advised to future care, and sat an talked for a bit of time to make it a comfortable situations. I appreciated the fact that he took to time to converse, both on a medical and personal level.

I seen Dr. Cordover for 2nd opinion on back injury. It's workers comp. and it seems hard to find open minded Drs. Most seem to be highly influenced by insurance co. This is my first time dealing with work related injury. But , I feel like he is not going to be swayed. Our first encounter seemed strained but once he determined my legitimacy he looked at it differently. I pray for him and I both.

Only doctor I have seen in over 5 months who has actually done a thorough exam, rather than just a glance at my MRI. He did surgery on my doctor, who thankfully referred me to him. He is honest but also has put forth a good effort to help me. I am currently in nurse practitioner school which he did not know until after he had already spent more time with me than almost every other doctor I have seen for my neck and back pain.
