One of the best neurosurgeon ever, I would trust no one but him for my treatment and surgery. I highly recommend this Dr..
in Brimfield, MA |
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.
