Dr. Yeung gave me a high level of optimism ay my first visit 30 mths ago. Since then, I've had 3 surgeries. The 1st & 3rd surgeries were min invasive (in and out), and the 2nd was major surgery, 4 days in the hospital rather than the 1-2 planned days. All 3 surgeries were performed within 20 mths of each other. My journey began 30 mths ago with daily pain in lower back & left leg, grabbing my attention several times a day. Now at the end of the journey, the pain is higher in both the back and leg. Now my left leg and foot from above the ankle to the toes are 90% numb; the 10% that is not numb is more painful than everything else. The net result; I am consumed with pain 9/10 min all day long, with complete numbness, discomfort, and lack of functionality. Plus now, 3-5 days a week, I wake up from extreme cramping and pain. Dr. Yeung often deferred to "What I wanted to do". Clearly a guided mistake, I followed his advice. I'm worse now than before I started. Don't do surgery!

Very very well run and clean office. Everyone was proficient at their job. Open, understandable conversations throughout. Consultation with Dr. Yeung was very informative. Surgery scheduler called within 48 hours to schedule the surgery and followup appointment plus arrange for necessary bloodwork. Very smooth experience all around.

Went to Dr. C. Yeung for severe nerve pain in neck. He was so compassionate after witnessing how much pain is was in that he moved mountains to get me into surgery ASAP to fix my herniated disk that was causing all the severe pain. I am eternally grateful to Dr. Yeung and staff for helping me get back to feeling great again!

Dr. Yeung came highly recommended by 2 leading physical therapists. Dr. Yeung, his PA and entire staff were very friendly, personable and professional. My diagnosis was very clearly explained to me and it was clear that everyone truly cared about my well-being. I would refer family and friends without hesitation.

Dr. Yeung was quick in diagnosing surgery as the best treatment for a very large bulging disc. His staff is very attentive and scheduling was made easy. Post op has been clear with directives of allowable movements and getting back to training. Feeling much better!

Dr. Chris Yeung, Chad White and the entire staff of DISC are outstanding. Dr. Yeung performed successful SED surgery on my lower back 4 1/2 years ago that changed my life. I recently visited with them again to address some other issues I am having and am comforted and confident knowing I am under their care once again. I have been and will continue to highly recommend DISC and their team. Thank You!
