Dr Denis is a miracle worker! Fusion surgery and he got me back to my normal everyday life in 6 weeks. You can see the confidence in his face when he’s telling you what you problem is and exactly what he can do to repair it. Great dr and staff is friendly as can be. I’ve sent 2 people to him and they have had same outcome. Thanks Dr Denis. ??????

Before I saw Dr Denis I was having pain and numbness in both legs. 10 days after surgery I was pretty much pain free in my legs. I definitely recommend Dr Denis if you have any kind of back or leg pain. I'm back to being my normal active self.

Since my surgery of April, 2018, I have strongly recommended Dr. Denis to a minimum of 10 friends with back or spinal issues. I saw him following another physician's failed surgery, where I was mislead to believe that my complaints were fiction. Dr. Denis listened, reviewed my record and thankfully operated on my back. He did for me what I thought would be impossible. He is a physician with empathy and I shall be forever grateful to him.

Dr. Denis is an excellent Neurosurgeon. He did a Lumbar Fusion of my L4 and L5 Vertebrae and R1. I was in severe pain before the surgery. He had a full schedule and cleared his schedule to do my surgery one week after I saw him at his office due to my excruciating pain. I have had total relief of the nerve pain I was having due to my nerves being pinched in the L4 and 5 and R1. I highly recommend Dr. Denis. He is also a very pleasant doctor.

Dr. Denis is an excellent neurosurgeon and a very personable doctor. He has a vast knowledge of his field and explained things to me in layman's terms. I never felt rushed during my office visits. He got me through some painful times. I appreciate his kindness and putting me on the road to a pain free life. I would not ever want to see another doctor. Thank you for being the best, Dr. Denis!

I had a car accident in 2016 that set a horrible set of events in to place. After meeting other neurosurgeons and getting nowhere, and at the peak of my pain and living on multiple painkillers, I went to see Dr. Denis. He recognized the gravity of my situation immediately and scheduled me for surgery the next week. I have a long recovery ahead of me, but thanks to Dr. Denis I have my life back. He was thorough, understanding, and talked to me in words I understood. I'd never see another surgeon!

My name is Tina. Lancon, Dr. Denis & his staff express such professionalism and sincerity when dealing one on one with you. I THANK GOD daily for bringing me to his facility. Due to a failed back surgery in 2016 by an orthopedic surgeon Dr. Denis was the ONLY doctor that was willing to invest his time in finding out what was wrong with me. He has now set forth a plan of action in helping me getting back to BEING ME AGAIN. thank you so very much Dr. Denis! words could never describe my gratitude!

Dr. Daniel Denis is a true professional. I went to him because my right hand was going numb. He explained to me I had spinal stenosis. He really made me feel comfortable and I decided on the surgery (Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion). He did not pressure me to get the surgery, but he explained to me that surgery was my best option. He did the surgery and the next day I was home feeling much better than when I went in. I would highly recommend Dr. Daniel Denis.

I saw Dr. Denis for a herniated lumbar disc. I appreciated the fact that he took the time to listen to my discussion of my problem and then to explain things patiently and in detail. I was most impressed by the fact that, unlike some surgeons, in no way did he aggressively push a surgical procedure. He prescribed some non-surgical treatments and when I improved on these, he said that surgery was not indicated at this time. Overall, he took a reasoned and balanced approach.

Dr. Denis looked at all of the reports (MRIs and Xrays) that I brought him very thoroughly. Every other doctor wanted to put bolts and screws into my back. Other doctors also recommended the epidurals. I did 3 of them, but they only worked temporarily. Dr. Denis saw what looked like a cyst on my spine. He scheduled surgery and removed the cyst. After surgery, I did not have any pain. I have not had any pain in my back since. I would highly recommend him. He is very thorough.

Dr. Denis is a wonderful Doctor. I previously saw a neurosurgeon and my pain went untreated. One visit to Dr. Denis and he located the problem in the first visit. I'm having major surgery with Dr. Denis and I have all the confidence in the world in him.
