Patient Comments (2)
in Cox's Mills, WV |
Dr. Underwood made what I considered a potentially traumatic, but necessary, procedure an absolutely life changing event. The discomforts after surgery were nothing compared to the relief from pain provided. Dr. Underwood is very caring and exceedingly competent, with none of the arrogance one might expect to find in a surgeon of his caliber. He is honest and straightforward, and expects no less from his patients. Dr. Underwood genuinely cares about improving his patients' quality of life.

Dr Underwood took the time to listen to my concerns and thoroughly explain the procedures he recommended for my spinal injury causing nerve pain and numbness. I appreciated the fact he was not quick to suggest surgery, but rather explored less invasive options first. In the end I did elect to undergo surgery and am pleased with my results. I am approaching 1 year since surgery and by following his advise on exercise/PT, I am now able to fully enjoy all activities and hobbies I enjoyed before.
