Best Neurosurgeon around!!!
in Salt Lake City, UT |
I have been seeing Dr Nathan for over a year now. I had a couple complications with my surgery that were outside of his control. I am now making a successful recovery and could not be happier with Dr. Nathan. Dr Nathan went out of his way to call me after hours and answer any of the questions I had 2 weeks prior to the surgery.

Dr. Nathan is very professional and knowledgeable. He is straight forward and tells it like it is. You get good, honest advice and solutions. He worked overtime several hours to make sure my operation went well and my problems would be resolved. The constant pain I had was gone immediately after surgery. I am recovering well with no complications. I am very satisfied with my results and would recommend Dr. Nathan to anyone with back or sciatic nerve pain.
