What People Say About Dr. Gray Stahlman, MD

This was the worst experience I had with a doctor in my life. My wife was in an accident and we had a lawyer and already settled with the insurance company. She was still in pain so came to him for help. He wasn't interested in helping her at all. Questioned her about the lawyer that called him months before. My wife was alone at the appointment and called me crying. I let TOA where he works now know about it, but I doubt they will do anything. He intentionally made her not want to come back to him because he was more concerned about a lawyer threat that didn't exist. I don't care how good of a surgeon he is. He was only concerned with himself in our case. Will never go back to him or TOA.

he took the time to explain what was causing my discomfort, acknowledged each pain i mentioned and how that pain was caused. he then outlined a treatment plan which would solve the problem I was most impressed and liked that Dr Stahlman along with the other Drs I have been treated by at TOA do not suggest cutting you open as the first treatment plan.

It was demeaning and humiliating, I am sorry I bothered the man, he had me so confused and upset, I thought he was a good doctor I will never know because I wont return. I am angry at myself for crying, maybe he was having a bad day, I need to rethink using the TOA although my other doctor is great.

I have know Dr Stahlman for 7 years. He has done two surgeries on me. One l4-l5-S1 lumbar fusion and a cervical C6-7 fusion. Both went excellent and I have nothing but highest regard for this mans talent, ability, and his bedside caring toward his patients with genuine concern! His nurse Stephenie is awesome too!
