Doctor Wakefield is an outstanding surgeon! His patient is the most important part of his medical practice. Doctor Wakefield operated on my lower back, relieving major pain in my leg. His attention to detail, patient comfort, and long term results is like no other doctor I have ever worked with. I would recommend him and his Staff with the highest regards!

Dr. Wakefield and Sean are both wonderful!! I had ACDF surgery in June 2018 and it has changed my life for the better. The office staff are spot on and I couldn't be happier with the results!! Highly recommend this practice!!

Dr. Wakefield performed surgery on my back in November 2017. I am pain free for the first time in 20 years. The surgery was a major success! Dr. Wakefield was cautious in his approach, first trying less invasive procedures. Only performing surgery as a last resort. He is very professional as well as an excellent surgeon. I thank you, and my family thanks you. However, the front office is poorly managed. But if you can overlook that, you won't be sorry.

Dr. Wakefield and his staff are very caring and provide excellent patient care. Dr. Wakefield explains how your procedure will take place and if he feels that he can not help you to become better for having the surgery he will tell you right up front. I knew right away that I was in good hands for my back surgery . Bill Milette

I can honestly say that Dr. Wakefield is one of the best doctors I have seen of any specialty in my life. Took the time to explain things in language that anyone could understand. He preformed an emergency surgery for me. I would certainly recommend him to anyone in need of his services.

I have only good things to say about the care I received... from the front office staff who were warm and welcoming, to the consultation that was thorough, informative, and not rushed in any way; the surgery itself, that was not the awful experience I feared, and was 100% successful; and finally the recovery that was monitored and well managed. Dr. Wakefield, his PA Sean Brennan, and his entire staff, are professional, comfortable to talk with, and really know their stuff! Highly recommended
