Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr Comey and his team installed a fake disc in my back .. it was experimental surgery. I agreed to be part of a study on it and I complied with every test asked of me. But when the implanted device had negative feedback from many patients, he and his assistant just stopped returning my calls… I’ve been left high and dry. INTEGRITY is important with doctors. Dr Comey obviously lacks in that area of medicine

He is the best neurosurgeon in the CT. He took care of my herniated disc. Anybody who needs a neurosurgeon he is the doctor to go to. I would recommend him to anyone that needs neurosurgeon.

Dr. Comey has performed surgery on my wife's lower back, my lower back, and my neck. In each instance the surgery was incredibly effective, with both discomfort levels and recovery times surprisingly low. The surgeries were performed only after extensive discussions regarding the procedures and available alternatives, in which he provided information in terminology which even a layman such as I could understand. Further, his entire staff is extremely talented and dedicated to each patient.
