I felt the video was great and covered all my questions. The only thing I would change is have the doctor obtain the disc as part of surgery pre op. I had to make a trip to toledo hospital to get a disc even though doctor had obtained info via internet.

Dr. Hoeflinger and his staff provided excellent care before and after my surgery. I am so pleased I selected Dr. Hoeflinger to perform my L5-S. Laminectomy with fusion and experienced no post-op complications. In fact, I am amazed with the results after so many years in pain. Dr. Hoeflinger is very informative and truly cares about his patients. I highly recommend Dr. Hoeflinger and he helped me get my life back.

Extremely satisfied with Dr. Hoeflinger, Jennifer, and office staff. McLaren was disconsiderate toward family and caregivers. This was beyond consideration for Covid.

The treatment I received at the clinic and McLaren St. Luke's was exemplary. The video was done quite well but was something used against me. My family all watched the video and the after surgery parts in order to keep me in line.
