I recently had lumbar fusion surgery by Dr. Vincent in December, 2018. It has been 6 weeks and I am recovering at home and I have had no problems. I feel like Dr. Vincent Is an excellent surgeon. He is very kind and caring and does everything to keep you comfortable. I am very happy with my results and I would recommend him to others that need to have spinal surgery.

Dr Vincent has cared for my son for several years. He performed a major spinal surgery 2 years ago and has literally changed my sons life. He not only cares for my sons physical well being, but for his emotional well being, too. I can not say enough good things about Dr Vincent as a person and as a doctor. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a neurosurgeon.

Dr, Vincent's services have always been extremely competent and very much appreciated. I fully realize that I am walking because of his diagnostic acuity and surgical skills. Further, he is extremely kind and compassionate at all times. As I talk with his other patients, I realize that all share my very high regard for him.

Doctor Vincent has been a blessing! I slipped and fell on ice in 2014 and had been in severe chronic pain with disabling migraines since then. I saw several of the best neurosurgeon's and none helped me. I finally decided to see Dr. Vincent, he preformed surgery in 2017. Not only is he an excellent surgeon, he's also a great listener! He has an understanding of nutrition and how it can help reduce pain. He also understands how to treat chronic pain.

When I ran out of options and had to have back surgery, Dr. David Vincent was highly recommended by many people that I knew. He eased my fears by answering my many questions thoroughly and then did an excellent job of performing a difficult surgery on the cervical area of my spine. When Medicare refused to approve my physical therapy, Dr. Vincent intervened immediately. His genuine concern. for the well-being of his patients and the support of his caring staff have led me to refer him often.

I had an appointment scheduled for three weeks. I was finally cleared for surgery. Day before my appointment they called to cancel it and moved it out another four weeks. Being in pain for 7 months this was unacceptable. So I found another doctor that could schedule me for surgery and now I’m recovering. I just was so disappointed but everything worked out with my new doctor.

This guy is like talking with your brother. He’s very thoughtful on what matters to you. He spends time with you like you’re his only patient. Very down to earth. Explains things so you can understand. I truly can’t say enough great things about him. For me, he is a God send.. His office staff are the greatest. Always polite and very helpful. His secretary Brittney is the best. If she can’t help you then there’s no help for you.

After being told nothing could be done to repair my back, I decided as a last ditch effort to see Dr. Vincent. I t was one of the best decisions of my life. After my first visit he told me my back could be repaired and I cried most of the way home in relief. The affected area was from S1 to T11. The day after surgery my daughter was with me when they had me stand. She could not believe how straight I was. I can now walk distances. Dr. Vincent gave me my life back with this surgery.

This was a bright/nice waiting area. I was greeted by an Office Assistant (OA) before I even reached the desk area; he kept me informed of my wait time, made sure I was comfortable. Dr. Vincent's Assistant greeted me & escorted me to an exam room. She took my vs, ht.,wt. Dr. Vincent reviewed my MRI before seeing me, examined me & discussed the result of my MRI using a skeleton & reviewed the MRI. He developed a care plan& asked did I agree, left a follow up apt & a referral for pain managemen

Had a cervical surgery on four levels in Jan 2017. My experience with Dr Vincent was professional, caring and successful. Even though I had four levels surgery on my neck In the morning I could eat lunch and the pains were very minimal. I am really thankful that I met Dr Vincent. He is not only a top notch doctor but also man of integrity and care.

Dr. Vincent is a very respectful man and good surgeon. However, his practice is horrendous. I was rescheduled 4 times between October and January for a follow-up from a diagnostic procedure. I have yet to see him to discuss my results and finally left to seek care from another neurosurgical practice. Absolutely horrible customer service!!!

I call Dr. Vincent, Saint Vincent. Not only is he a top notch Dr. but he is a terrific human being. He has integrity and is caring. If you ask anyone who works for him or has met him they will all tell you the same thing. He removed two tumors from inside my spinal canal. I feel blessed to have found him.
