My experience here has been wonderful. The providers and staff are great. After a couple years of pain I finally went and had surgery for my low back. It has been a life changer. Dr. Vigna did a wonderful job and I couldn't be happier.

Very well cared for. Provider gave a good understanding of surgery and the outcome was better than I could have ever expected. My quality of life has tremendously improved and it's only been 2 weeks since surgery. All staff treated me in a kind, compassionate, professional manner. I am so grateful to finally be pain free!

I have nothing but good things to say about this provider. First of all l have never sat in their waiting room for more than 10 minutes before seeing the doctor. I am absolutely blown away by their care. The doctor's l have seen have exhibited true compassion and empathy, a rarity today in the medical arena. There is no rushing you out the door here. They take their time with you, allow you to talk and more importantly really listen to you. I could not recommend them more highly!!!

Dr. Vigna is personable, caring and very knowledgeable. He made me feel comfortable at every encounter. He took the time to answer every question and never rushed though an appointment. I had 5 level cervical fusion which is a 2 stage surgical procedure and Dr. Vigna was on hand and responded quickly to calls from the hospital staff concerning me. Although I would never wish this on anyone. I would recommend Revive Spine Center and Dr. Vigna He gets a 10 out of 10 for Orthopedic care!

I had surgery with Dr. Vigna and I'm slowly but surely feeling like myself again. He took the time to explain my condition to me and made sure I understood what was going on. The whole office is very accommodating. Would definitely recommend reVive to anyone suffering from back and neck pain.

I have had 2.5 years of pain with no where to go. I saw Dr. Vigna in 2009 for my first surgery, then I came back in October for my second and my pain is totally gone! I could not have done that without Dr. Vigna.

After years of fighting with the VA system, Dr.Vigna gave my husband his life back through spinal fusion. 2 days post-op and this is the first time in years he says there is no back pain. Dr.Vigna truly cares about his patients and their well being. We just can't thank you enough for giving us our future back.
