He believed me when other Drs didn’t about my neck pain & did both my surgeries and fixed my neck. I will definitely use him in the future for my lower back! He is awesome!

Dr. Pahl is definitely one of the best doctors I have gone to. I'm finally trying to get back to normal and he has dealt with my craziness with my back stimulator. He has done all 3 of my surgeries and has let me know everything going on and he tells you how it is and it helped me realize...more
