Such a great doctor...he took extra time to go over treatment options for me and I felt so much better. The office girls were so nice. I will recommend to this office for sure.
in Grosse Pointe, MI |
Dr. Minster and staff went out of their way to help me schedule my surgery between semesters because they understand how important school is to me. The staff pushed my referral and pre-authorization through in record time and Dr. Minster came in on a Saturday morning to perform the surgery. Dr. Minster has been there for me throughout the process, from diagnoses to recovery. I would not send anyone I care about to anyone else.
Shelby Twp, MI |
Such a nice Doctor, and I will return. He was great with going over my test results and given me my options. The office was very busy but they seemed to make everything flow!
in Roseville, MI |
Very nice doctor...took as much time as I needed at every visit. Was not quick to jump right to surgery, but ended up in that direction. The office staff is all very nice and I have referred others to this office.
in Livonia, MI |
He has specialized in spine surgery for 20 years. He looked at my MRI and took the time to talk with me and gather more information. He then gave me his recommendation that he believed would keep me out of further surgery for the rest of my life. I had a L3,4 and 5 fusion. This has not been an easy road and was major surgery. I am doing well 5 weeks after. I feel he was the best doctor and surgeon for my back and my life. I found out later he handles the Red Wing players as well.
