One year post op visit with Dr Bjerke was today. My back feels great!! I no longer walk with a cane. He explains your treatment and tells you what options are available for you. Gentle, caring, and concern are shown for his patients. I would see him should I need spine surgeon if the future.

I had an awesome appointment with Dr Bjerke. Both he and his staff were amazing and very compassionate. Despite the severity of my injury he gave me many options and possible issues with every option. I can not yet comment on surgery of any kind but the visit was amazing. He was in no rush and...more

Dr Bjerke is a kind man who listens, but will only answer wether or not I need surgery. He does not do any diagnosis if no surgery is needed, just looks at old film and says wether or not surgery is needed. What about finding out what is wrong?

Dr. Bjerke takes the time to listen to you and explain the options and procedures. He's not too busy to care. I would recommend to anyone.

Dr.Bjerke, was my choice for a second opinion. I was treated so professionally by the entire staff. My appointment was way above my expectations. I felt at ease and everything was explained. In detail. I feel comfortable in the hands of this surgeon.
