After seeing Dr. Denis for pain in my lower back.He ordered a Bone Density Test and called me on a weekend himself to give me the results.Very few doctors will call you themself's with test result's let alone on a weekend.I will be seeing him again for neck pain from a previous ACDF surgery.

Dr. Denis is at the very top of his specialty with a comprensive analysis of causative factors and alleviation of pain. Throughout the process of planning through rehab he is very compassionate and personally available to his patients. He is abreast of the latest innovations that neurosurgery has to offer.

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.

Great surgeon. I'm so glad I found him and I've told all my family and friends that need to see a Neurosurgeon to please look up Dr. Denis. My Surgery was on November 8th. 2018 and I'm feeling like a new person. No more back issue and sleeping like a baby on my back for first time in 20 years. Dr. Denis is definitely skilled at Laminectomies.

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.
