Patient Comments (1)

Once I was referred to Dr. Tomecek for two crumbling vertebrae in my neck everything happened quickly and efficiently. His scheduling girl (I would give anything if I could remember her name to give her full credit) was amazing at getting all my tests, appointments, and surgery scheduled quickly...more
