This Doc is a busy guy for good reason. He's good at what he does. Since I was new to the area and my cervical spine condition was fairly complex, I had to do a little research to find the right neurosurgeon. Though it was a little tough to make the initial appointment, the surgery process that followed was detailed, empathetic and very informative throughout. His PA's are both first rate and equally impressive. Post op 1 month - So far so good. Post op followup was good and progress continues. Rarely do I give 5 stars on anything but this time it is deserved.

I was paralyzed by a Chiropractor and Dr Rhoton got me in, visited me in the Hospital, made sure my family was taken care of and operated on me the next day. He also scheduled an MRI in Waynesville to speed up the process of my operation and it made all the difference in the world. Since the surgery, I have never had a problem of any kind. What a wonderful , great, professional, extremely knowledgeable and treats everyone like family. I was honored to have Dr Rhoton as a Doctor and friend.
