Excellent Staff, thorough exam and evaluation, and Dr. Good spent over a hour explaining my options, what he would do if he was in my shoes, and how the process would work. Listened and answered every question I had and has a excellent bed side manner. I have recommended him to several co-workers, friends and family members, I had back issues over 10 years, and was 4 yrs out from a micro laminectomy, with little relief, within a week of 2 level ALIF I was feeling minimal pain . Highly Recommend.

Had one level lumbar fusion with robotics used. Excellent , improved almost immediately. Pain lessened dramatically within days. Therapy continues under his care. Had complicated compression issues which affected ability to use legs and he was able to handle. Have recommended him to friends who are in constant pain,
