Johnson City, TN |
Dr. Stephens was a concerned physician who seemed to care about my back problems very much. He asked the right questions, and answered mine without hesitation. I would strongly recommend him for treatment to everyone.

I went to see Dr. Stephens in November 2016. I had been experiencing severe sciatica in my left leg for two years. He earned my trust at that first meeting. He was friendly, compassionate, and very competent. We reviewed my MRI and he answered all my questions. He was confident that the procedure he proposed would alleviate my pain. I had the surgery in January 2017 and knew right away that it was a success. I was so glad I had chosen Dr. Stephens to do my surgery!

Dr Stephen is a compassionate, caring doctor whom I trust implicitly. I would recommend him to anyone in my family or any of my friends should they need an assessment and/or orthopedic surgery. My husband and I both feel the same way. You couldn't have better care.

I am a 65 year old female who was convinced I'd try everything before submitting myself to back surgery. After trying all alternatives with little if any success, after 3 years of pain progressing to effectively bedridden; Dr Stephens was recommended to me. From the very beginning, he was cautious and wary. Eager to help me if he could. We went through every possible precaution including a second opinion that he requested. I awakened pain free in my back and leg from surgery. Thanks Dr. Stephens

My personal experience with Dr, Stephens and his staff was a very great experience. Greeting with smiles from all staff involved. The thorough explanations of my conditions and letting me be a part of how we proceed with procedure meant he truly cared for me as a patient He was very pleasant all the time. If other conditions arise in his area of expertise, I will not hesitate to let him take care of me again. R/S Nicki Hickman

I found myself trusting Dr. Stephens to perform 2 very complex surgeries from my 1st office visit. With each successive visit, my trust in him deepened. 6 weeks after those surgeries I'm into recovery and am extremely happy with Dr. Stephens and the results he achieved. He truly is, not only skilled, at what he does, but he obviously cares deeply about his patients. If I ever need any other orthopedic procedure, Dr. Stephens is the only choice I'll consider. He rates 5 stars out 5 in all

Excellent doctor. Took his time explaining my diagnosis and treatment options. Reviewed my MRI with me and explained why surgery (cervical fusion) was a good option for me!
