Completely satisfied. Nurses were excellent. Good quality care.
I actually like when Dr King shows the MRIs so we can see what is going on An he explains it well. He was very good. Since I saw him this past Monday I was feeling ok An did some yard work I can’t get up or walk or get out of bed without in so much pain. Thank you Dr King for seeing me
Always pleasant, and professional.
It was good. I love dr. King's sense of humor. He always has funny things to say. He is very quick-witted.
Doctor King is a great doctor and I appreciate his excellent communication skills, he makes things understandable!
I was very satisfied and understood what was happening to my back, as he very carefully showed me what the problem was and how he could fix it. I feel so much better then I did. I am in the process of having him do the operation as soon as I can get all the stuff needed done Thank You Dr. King. See you soon Robert J. Viehweg
I was referred by another physician to see Dr. King for possible surgery. Dr. King listened to my issues and did a thorough examine. He explained in detail the findings on my MRI including long term problems that I was never made aware of by other physicians. He told me what I can do now and possible options for surgery but he actually recommended against surgery at this time. I did not feel rushed. I was very comfortable with him.
Dr King was Professional and spent a lot time explaining my condition and medical procedure so I could make an informed decision.

Dr. Christopher King was beyond phenomenal! He took great care in explaining what was going on and what he was going to do to treat me. The surgery was a success and he was wonderful afterwards whentalking with my husband, according to my husband. He followed up with me in the hospital which made me feel good. His bedside manor is wonderful. Most doctors act rushed and like they could care less. Not Dr. King. I have been bragging about him since then. Even his staff was incredible with communica

My Husband had severe stenosis in his neck , surgery was inevitable ,we were so apprehensive but Dr. King was very patient with us explaining the procedure and recovery .Couldn't have been in better hands so thankful for Dr. King ,He is an amazing surgeon
I had a great experience if you call having your head carved open fun. Dr. King was very knowledgeable and witty.
Excellent care provided by DR King .....thank you again...Andy V
Everything went fine with the dr. I am going to have a shot in my hip tomorrow Thank you Evelyn
Dr. King gave my husband and I the most detailed explanation of my MRI that we have ever experienced. After years, I finally understand all that is wrong with my spine/back/hip. Many questions were answered for me. He was also very personable and made us completely relaxed. This kind of effective communication is sorely missing in the medical field these days. I have had to talk to many doctors in the last three years so I know what I'm saying.
Doctor King is an excellent surgeon. When I first met him in the hospital after having been admitted for severe lower back and leg pain, I was immediatedly reassured that I was in the very best of care. His confidence meant a lot to me and the surgery was indeed successful. I had such excellent care prior to the surgery, and, following surgery when Doctor King checked in on me, he was thorough and attentive in making sure that all my post surgical concerns were addressed.
