I had back surgery on 10-5-2017 and he did very job on my back I would recommend him
in Carmel, CA |
Dr. Carver is very personable, thorough and professional. He performed surgery on my cervical spine and the recovery was exactly what he told me it would be and a month after surgery I was back to work on a limited basis but back to work, nonetheless. Amy and his staff are responsive, kind and professional. Six months after the surgery, I have no complications and even though the incision was at my throat instead of the back of my neck, there is literally no scar. Thanks Chris for a great job.
