A year later and I finally find out diagnosis. Office doesn't return phone calls and no he is holding me hostage as a patient when I request another doctor his office says he will not let me go as a patient. I do t trust him why would I let him operate my choice and my choice of doctors not his. What a disgrace of a doctor and person.

When I was referred to Dr. Connor, he was in no hurry to perform my surgery. He wanted me to exhaust all other options before performing surgery. However, no other options were successful as I have degenerative disc disease. The surgery was extensive. But, after 9 weeks of recovery and still recovering, I am very pleased. Everyday is better than the day before. Dr. Connor, his nurse practitioner, nurses and staff have been very patient, helpful and compassionate throughout the 10 month process. I am very pleased with him.

I highly recommend Dr. David Connor for when you are suffering from a condition that requires the steady hand of a Neurosurgeon. I suffered for many years with cervical disc issues. My left arm would go numb in the night, I agonized through pain and weakness. It was a complicated issue and after 18 months and multiple surgeries he fixed that monkey on my back. He listens and seems very knowledgeable about his profession. Thank you so much for seeing me through this tough spot in my life!

My experience with Dr. Conner and his staff was excellent. He knew from the first visit what I needed done for my back issues. Surgery was set up and my recovery time was longer that I would have liked but I did what he recommended and now am back to work and doing well. Would recommend him highly!!

I had some really serious nerve problems with my neck, hands and back due to the nature of being a mechanic for 25 plus years. I went to see Dr. Conner and that was the best decision I've ever made for my health moving on. Dr. Conner performed a C-4 C-5 and C-5 C-6 ACDF fusion on 11-15-2019 and also left wrist carpal tunnel release on 1-28-2020 and I'm so glad to say things are going great. Dr.Conner point of where the surgery was performed are awesome. Hope to return to work in the next few weeks. (Great Surgeon) thanks Doc.

Dr. Connor performed a craniotomy on me on 12/24/19. He explained the procedure well and made me feel very comfortable about my surgery. He checked on me daily during my hospital stay regardless of it being the holidays. I would highly recommend Dr Connor.

First time ever having surgery. Dr. Connor made me feel so comfortable and at ease about the surgery I was ready. I feel so much better after having the surgery. I must say I'm almost back at 100% I haven't felt that way in a few years. He is a wonderful Dr. with a great personality.

After a MVA and being in pain for 5-1/2 years which resulted in multiple appointments with many other doctors my PCP referred me to Dr. Connor. Upon the first visit Dr Connor was very kind patient and He explained what my problem was. He performed surgery on my back and I’m very pleased with the surgery and Dr. Connors care. Definitely happy with the results. Thank you Dr. Connor!

Today marks a year that Dr. Connor performed a L5-S1 discectomy for me. The herniation of the disc was large and was causing numbness in toes and occasionally intense nerve pain - sometimes it felt like fire or ice water running across my buttock and down my right leg to my toes - the pain was hard to manage. The relief after the surgery was immediate. A year later and after following his instructions I'm feeling great. I am so thankful for his care and skill. He is funny and was very matter of fact and I appreciated that in him. This was my first surgery and I was absolutely terrified, and I have no regrets. If you have a problem don't wait and extend the days of pain. I'm aware that I have other discs that are bulging, and I hope to prevent any future surgeries. But if I need another I would not hesitate going to Dr. Connor.

After looking at my M R I and finding what my problem was Doctor Connor got me in to surgery just as soon as a room became available, Doctor Connor or someone from his team checked on me each day. Doctor Connor gave me instructions to follow and a list of things not to do. I'm very pleased with my out come and with Doctor Connors performance.

Dr Connor did an outstanding job performing a double ACDF procedure. He promised to make my pain go away and it did. I fully intend to utilize his excellent skills again in the near future and I feel very confident in my decision. Thank you Dr Connor and your excellent and dedicated staff ??

I came to Dr. Connor after suffering 2 years and having had one failed repair to my L5-S1. I had become unable to work or even do simple tasks around the house. On my first visit, Dr. Connor and his staff made me feel like my condition actually mattered to them. He explained my options in terms that myself and my family could understand. He laid out a plan, and saw it through. He performed an ALIF fusion procedure. Before and after the procedure he and his staff made absolutely sure that I was comfortable and understood what was happening. I felt immediate relief from the pain. I had full function of my legs. I felt like a million bucks, and I had just awoken from anesthesia. In the following appointments the same level of care was given. It was so nice to feel like I was more than just a number. More than just a patient. I would definitely recommend Dr. Connor to anyone with back issues. I honestly don’t believe anyone could get better care anywhere.
