Not happy with pain management. If for any reason you can't take narcotics except for Demerol be prepared to be disappointed. To get in to see a pain management Dr soon after, be prepared to be disappointed. They knew before they did my surgery my issues with medication and didn't plan out my pain management in advance for my health. I can't rest that's why I am up at 1:00 am. This is very cruel and unfair to be sent home with something you can't take.

Dr. Phillips is a remarkable surgeon and has definitely helped me with my back problems. I don't limp anymore and my pain is completely gone. I would recommend him to anyone who is in pain and needing surgery. Very professional and personal. I don't know of any other surgeon I would trust more.

I would recommend Dr. Phillips to any of my family and friends if they were in need of correcting a back ailment. He performed a lumbar fusion on my back and although apprehensive at first, Dr. Phillips did the procedure and the next day I was at home recuperating and knowing his decision to perform the procedure was he correct thing to do.

Dr. Phillips took very good care of me. He actually cares about patience as people and how they feel. The entire staff from start to finish took excellent care of me. They were very informative to both me and my wife before, during and after surgery. I will gladly recommend him to all my family and friends with major back problems. I trust him completely. I feel like I couldn't have had a better doctor. I am totally grateful to him and his staff for making it possible to have a normal life again

Dr. Phillips performed a magical surgery for me to get rid of the numbness in my buttocks and lower legs above the ankle. The surgery he performed in my lower spine took away the numbness and i’m good as new.

Dr. Phillips was awesome! He got my MRI on a Thursday, set up appointment to review Friday, and had me in surgery that Sunday! I had been suffering for months trying different options. Dr. Phillips determined the cause and was very helpful getting surgery set up quickly that weekend. I was so relieved, and surgery went very well. I felt great the first day after my surgery! I highly recommend him!

I highly recommend Dr Phillips for medical care. Due to an accident, I had a pretty messed up disc and surgery was required. He explained the benefits, the risks, everything I would deal with (the good, the bad and the possible ugly) in full prior to surgery. However, between his and his nurse’s confidence, I had very little fear. Best faith I could have had because he’s fixed me and I can bend down and hug my little girl again. Thank you, Dr. Phillips and Lauren!!!

after months of severe sciatic nerve pain due to a herniated lower disc, Dr. Phillips performed minimally invasive disc surgery to relieve pressure on the nerve. I am now "totally" pain free and able to resume activities I thought lost to me. On my first visit to Dr. Phillips, I walked in with a very painful left leg (sorta like a crab)....however, now I do believe I could boogie to the late hours, even if I am 72..........I'm thankful to Dr. Phillips and his team.
