    ABSOLUTELY THE WORST EXPERIENCE EVER! I was refered to Dr. Messer from a chiropractor dr for help with a car accident that caused spinal damages and Dr. Messers assistant Daryl told me that "there is no damage and that chiropractors didn't know how to read MRI scans and that having bulges in my discs were normal that everyone has them". Also was told by him that there was "nothing they could do but he wanted to recommend numbing shots and see what happens, but the shots were my choice".

    I can not give enough praise for Dr. Messer's surgical skills. 35 years of heavy lifting took its toll on my back till I was unable to walk and the pain and numbness were debilitating to anything but lying on my back. Dr. Messer performed an Anterior Lumbar Spinal Fusion of my L5, S1 vertebrae with amazing success. The pain was gone instantly, I was walking the next morning and was able to go up stairs with absolutely no pain. Three years later I am doing great. Thank You, Dr. Messer!!

    I called Dr Messer's office on 10/19/16 and dropped off my MRI on a CD with the written reports on 10/20/16. Since then no one has gotten back to me to schedule an appointment. I have called and left messages. On 11/03/16 I called and spoke with Dorinda. she was to call me back and has not. I am a former patient of Dr Messer when he was with a different group and can not believe how this group he is with now operates.

    Dr. Messer is the only doctor I will ever allow to touch my back again. He cured me 100% and I have no pain what-so-ever! Yes I recommend him to anyone who who is afraid to have back surgery. He makes it very easy and you'll be walking around the nest day feeling better than ever..
