I was told by other Dr's that pain management was the best I could hope for the rest of my life. My neurosurgery has been a life changing experience. Dr Fassett and his team have given me quality of life back. Thank you and God bless you.

Dr. Fassett was very explanatory about my disorder right from the start and thorough out my complete procedural cycle. Never did I feel rushed during our consultations as he answered my and my wife’s concerns adequately and clearly. He managed my pain as well as one could have expected and his staff was very caring and professional and did all they could to provide me with the best care possible. If required I would not hesitate to go back to Dr. Fassett again or recommend him to a friend.

From our first visit, thru surgery and out most recent follow up, Dr. Fassett and his staff have been extremely thorough, patient and kind. Their frequent check in system and post surgery follow up have been more than I hoped for.

Dr. Fassett I trust completely. He is very smart and knowledgeable and truly cares about his patients as it is seen in his great bedside manor. I am very thankful that Dr. Fassett got me in quickly with my issues and told me exactly what I need and then did just that. I will go back to him for any Spinal issues I am having in the future and have already referred him to many friends and family. Thank you Dr. Fassett!

Dr. Fassett is not only experienced and knowledgeable but kind and caring. He takes time not only with me but my family. He came to see me in the hospital on his way out of town for some time off--what caring and dedication. I absolutely love working with his team also, his nurse Holly and his APN, Ashley. My daughter will be seeing Dr. Fassett also and I have complete confidence in Dr. Fasett and his team.

Brilliant surgeon. Excellent results even for the Most difficult conditions. Health Loop and Spine School keeps patients informed. I had a severely painful lower back from waist to hips with three conditions needing repair. After extensive lumbar fusion, my pain is gone.

Dr Fassett took the time to review all x-rays and MRIs with me and discussed the next strategy. He allowed me time to process information before making any decisions.

After consulting with two other surgeons, Dr Fasset was the only one who spoke with me about fixing the problem instead of providing a "band-aid" fix that wouldn't provide relief. He was very honest in the expectation and outcome of the surgery. He treated me as a person and answered all of my questions and concerns fully and honestly. His entire staff is awesome and answered all my questions and helped put my mind at ease. my surgery was two weeks ago, he's still checking in with me daily!

Dr. Fassett visited me for 3 straight days after the operation himself including a Saturday. I felt well taken care of by him personally.

I recently got into a car accident and broke most of my spine/neck and had the choice of a risky surgery or wearing a back brace for an unknown amount of time(possibly forever). I chose surgery with Dr. Fassett and I'm glad I did. Great doctor will be forever grateful I can live a normal life.

I believe Dr. Fassett is one of the best doctors one could have. He is kind, caring, and actually listens to your concerns. Dr. Fassett will give you all the options for your care. He does not rush you and will explain what the procedure will entail before (or after) a decision has been made. He and his entire care team are excellent.

Both Dr. Fassett and his staff have provided outstanding care - from the first visit to the day of surgery and through all the post-op visits. I would return to Dr. Fassett should the need arise without hesitation.
