Dr. Ehler was very professional and to the point . He explained what was wrong and what needed to be done . On the day of the surgery he asked if I had any questions. He answered all of them. His physician assistant Nicole was also extremely nice, helpful and professional. The surgery was a success and I have Dr. Ehler, Nicole, the nurses, and anethicists and the whole Crystal Clinic to thank. My surgery was a microdisectomy of L4 and L5. I am now pain free and have feeling back on my left side.

In my opinion this man has ruined my life forever. I've had to have 2 more surgeries since he did what I would call an abortion on my spine. I have permanent nerve damage, can't control my bowels, walk with a cane and still fall. A wonderful neurosurgeon tried to repair the damage Ehrler done. Some was fixed, some is permanent. I then had to have a fusion. I ca no longer work, have sex with my husband. I wear depends. My life is over , my marriage is probably next. I just turned 54. Run from him

i would NOT recommend Dr. Ehrler. When I noticed problems after surgery, I went to see him. His first question was Did I do surgery on you? We're talking about MY SPINE for heavens sake! i felt totally blown off as far as the pain I am in.I have to go for mylegran,then back to see him. This will be a month after I notified him of what I feel is a serious problem!! Never mind I'm trying to work 6 days a week.
