Learn about Dr. Song

Care Philosophy

I chose to be a doctor because I wanted to spend my life making a meaningful difference in the lives of others. When choosing a specialty, I wanted to find something that I would find fulfilling. Spine surgery is intellectually challenging and I love a good challenge. I am most satisfied by correcting spinal deformities and doing complicated revisions. There is nothing like reconstructing a patient's spine and giving them their quality of life back.  I spend a lot of my time counseling my patients so they feel informed and confident in the treatment course that we decide on. I am committed to making sure I have exhausted every other approach before recommending the operating room.

Patient Comments (12)
in Bethalto, illinois |
We were very pleased and happy we had him for surgery . He was very informative before surgery and explained everything to us. He does what he has to and not knife happy . He was on time sincere thoughtful and is an excellent surgeon and when we thanked him he said to thank the man upstairs who is in control of his hands. We cannot thank him enough.

I am sorry that I am unable to give any stars. I would not recommend him as he does not like answering questions so the patient can understand. His time is very limited and seems to impatient to me as I don't trust such behavior.
in Mesa, AZ |
Dr. Song and staff were very professional with initial visit, subsequent surgery and follow up visits. I would certainly recommend Dr. Song as I felt immediate improvement after surgery. He knew exactly what my spinal challenges were and how to make me whole again. I no longer have intense sciatic pain from my lower back, into hip and down to my right foot. I lived with pain for one year and had several epidural injections to manage pain and they were ineffective until Dr. Song did his magic.
in Apache Junction, Az |
Doctor Song has given me relief that I thought would never come again. He thoroughly explained everything and listen to ant concerns that I may have had. I would recommend the Doctor to anyone that needs spine surgery. The wife and I have had surgery from the Doctor and we are both satisfied.
in Mesa, AZ |
Very good experience. Tells things like they are. Would recommend Dr. Song to anyone.
in Phoenix, AZ |
Dr Song is amazing! I had surgery on November 21st 2016. I had a disc removed and a plate put in my neck. I was discharged the next day and felt amazing. He is very sure of himself and his work. I would recommend him to everyone and I have. He has a great bed side manner and makes you feel very comfortable. His staff is just as nice.
in Mesa, AZ |
Dr. Song and his staff are very considerate and caring. They have been with me every step of the way. Dr. Song gave me what options that were best for me and the surgery was a life saver for me. I'm still recovering and under Dr. Songs care. At this point in my life I would recommend Dr. Song to anyone that needs an orthopedic surgeon.
in Gilbert, AZ |
I love Dr. SONG. I am thankful to him for the flawless repair of my cervical spine. He gave me my life back.
in Gold Canyon, AZ 85118 |
I was referred too Dr. Song by a fellow college (Dr. Dwight Keller). On my first visit with Dr. Song I was quite unsure of having my back operated on, even though Dr. Keller had had the exact same procedure done to his back. Dr. Song was all business on our first meeting and took the time need to explain exactly what was involved in the procedure and made me feel comfortable with what he would be doing. Dr. Song's professional demeanor put my concerns aside and helped me make the right decision.
in Gilbert, AZ |
Waited two months to see Dr Song. Heard all wonderful things about what a great doctor he is. He came in the room and promptly announced he wouldn't take me as a patient since I was in litigation from a car accident. What?? I'm using my health insurance to pay him, I have something wrong with me and you won't see me? I asked him to disregard the litigation, just be my doctor and please get to my issue and he refused. Staff was great, found it a sad situation. Left me hanging. I left in tears.
in Queen Creek, AZ |
Saw Song early Nov after failed double lumbar fusion by diff surgeon, he wanted CT done (had a one month old MRI). This delayed planned revision till Dec, then his incompetent staff could not schedule surgery until March - Song's first opening. Told I'd get exact date by early Jan. Had ZERO contact from his staff, my calls were brushed off. Changed surgeons, had surgery done - successfully - in 5 weeks, not 5 months. Song was unpersonable, uncaring, his staff most incompetent ever seen.
in Gilbert, AZ |
Dr. Song is straightforward, honest, and will explain your condition and any procedures you may need. He is diligent with the follow up should you need surgery, and consistent in his routine.
