I had C5-C7 spinal fusion in my neck. Dr. Garrido and his team have been excellent prior to and since the surgery. I met with Dr. Garrido to discuss options and he was very clear on what to expect. The day of the surgery could not have been more smooth. I met with Dr. Garrido before the surgery and he explained what he was going to do and what I should expect post surgery. I was pleasantly surprised at how painless this process has been. I am recovering well and highly recommend him.

Worst experience and dissapointing visit with dr ever! Looked forward to this appt with anticipation of help for treatment my neurologist recommended a dr to perform kyphoplasty procedure the referring dr as well as myself called this office to make sure he does were told yes after getting to the appt with my mother in such pain was told he does not perform this unless he has too told us more than three times. She was 80 certainly not a confident. Dr to find relief or treatment do not see him!

I will try and keep this short and to the point. It's been a long 5 years suffering pain! I had a bulging disk which caused extreme sciatic pain.. I tried everything under the sun for relief.. Nothing helped me.. I was referred to Dr Garrido from multiple people in Mooresville.. All I can say is it's been 2 weeks since my surgery and I have no pain.. My back is healing and my only regret is not doing this sooner.. A huge thank you to Dr Garrido and his wonderful staff.

Dr. Garrido, has to be one of the best surgeons I have met. He performed my surgery 3/31/2017 I woke to no pain like I had been dealing with for a long time. I need neck surgery at a later date. I definitely will return to Dr. Garrido. Thanks to you and your wonderful staff.

He was great before the operation, but terrible after. Couldn't get him to respond to my problems. Had to go to another doctor.

Dr. Garrido is straight talking and gets right to the solutions for pain relief. I prefer the directness, but for others he may be cold. My lower back symptoms were classic with sharp shooting pain down the leg and into the heel, muscle spasms and numbness. After my surgery I was pain free and have been now for 2 years. I highly recommend Dr. Garrido.

This skilled surgeon gave me my life back! I had 4 months of terrible pain that was escalating. 1 week prior to surgery I was in agonizing debilitating pain, confined to my home & using a walker. Post-op, in less than 24 hours, I was giddy with gratefulness! The agonizing pain was gone! By week 4, I was walking 2-3 miles a day! I needed a miracle and I got one in choosing the right surgeon, Dr. Ben Garrido. Not only is he an excellent dr, he is humble, kind & caring. None finer.

What a difference with my meeting with Dr. Garrido. I had already been told I would need a couple of discs replaced and I wanted a second opinion. I immediately noticed a difference in Dr. Garrido as he listened to everything I had to say leading up to my appointment with him. Dr. Garrido had reviewed my MRI and had his own ex rays done. He explained to me that I did not need any disc replaced that is fact all he needed to do was let him perform an out patient procedure where he would go in and

Dr. Garrido is an outstanding doctor. If it wasn't for him and his staff and the hospital taking great care of me, I don't know where I would be at this time in my life. When I came in to see him, I was not able to walk very much at all due to a fall. The pain was so excruciating in my back, along with sciatica in my leg that I could not work or do anything. Dr. Garrido did surgery on me on March the 8th and I went back to work on April 18th. I can't thank him enough for giving me my life back.

Professional. Courteous. Outrageous dry sense of humor.My first visit with him was in the emergency room. I was paralyzed form the waist down. Based on my recovery I'd say Ben is a walking god among earthly doctors.

Was able to discuss my problem with him and his PA and did not feel rushed. He showed me the problem on the screen and explained exactly what he was going to do. He took time to go over my MRI again and called me and explained. His office staff is GREAT. What more can one say. Lisa was a great help, Betty, well you just have to meet her. Know you will feel welcomed. His PA called me back in a timely manner and answered any questions which came up.
