    I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Aho to friends and relatives because his is a great doctor with an excellent background and training. He performed a very complicated, lengthy back surgery on me. I had numerous problems that he talked to me about and options. I finally decided to have the surgery and I am doing extremely well -- never thought I would ever be the good again! Thanks to Dr. Aho!!!!
