I am a Yoga Instructor/ICU Nurse. In October 2015, after first trying Chiropractic therapy etc. for disc herniation, I went to see Dr. Wimberley. He was very kind, very attentively to my "story", answered all questions patiently, presented all the options, pros & cons clearly. No pushing in any directions. I chose to do Disk resection surgery. 2 weeks later I had my surgery. Woke up shortly after surgery without any pain.Minimal post-op pain, 100%Speedy recovery, great follow-up. A FABULOUS Dr!

I had major back surgery to alleviate back spasms on Jan 4 2015 - it is a year later and despite doing massive amounts of PT & Aqua Therapy - I cannot walk without using a rollator & have more pain than I did before surgery

He is piss poor returning phone calls. Runs habitually late, as in hours late. Post Op, heaven forbib you need to speak to him. Use someone else.

I found this doctor to be kind and knowledgable. He's the third doctor that I have seen for my herniated disc, and I'd say I got the best treatment here out of all the spine doctors I've been to. He recommended that I see a pain specialist that does steroid injections. Dr Wimberly's nurse practitioner explained the procedure to me and answered all the questions and concerns I had. I didn't catch his name, but he was so helpful and exceptionally kind and caring.

I have him for three month. I have bulging disc on c5 c6 and c7, at frist he is not going to do suary but he want me to do shots. But I told him I have done 4 shots last year. So he said let do CT myelogram that same day, and he told me that c5 c6 and c7 is real bad that I needed suary, just last next week he have back down form doing suary. I do not recommend him he goes back and forth and he's very wishy-washy.
