He has a very bad bedside manner. He told me that my back had nothing wrong with it and to "deal with the pain." I will not recommend him to anyone. I'm forced to go out of town to see a doctor for my back.

Dr Eggers is an excellent surgeon. He is interested in helping patients with true neurological spinal issues!! He was able to help me both times he did my back surgeries! First time 10 yrs prior was a lumbar laminectomy. Second surgery was a micro lumbar spinal fusion. Excellent outcome...Read More

He will tell you like it is. I had to have 3 surgeries,over a period of time and he was honest about outcomes. He helped with the pain but did not claim to be a miracle worker. I am 72 years old and trust this doctor.
