Dr. DeWal is the first doctor that I consulted with in regards to my back condition. I went to 4 other doctors for another opinion & they all gave me bizarre treatment plans. The last thing that I wanted to do was have lumbar fusion surgery but after consulting with Dr DeWal he was the only physician that made me feel confident & he was matter of fact. He told me exactly what had to be done & what to expect & that is how it happened exactly. He is a phenomenal surgeon & he did a great job!

I have complete confidence in the surgery that Dr. Hargovind Dewal has done on me. Thus far he has been so thorough with me, and has always taken the time to answer all of my questions he has sent me for all of the proper testing and we have tried everything else before deciding surgery. I am confident in the care that I am receiving with him. My new physical therapy will prove i made the right choice. I highly recommend Dr. Hargovind Dewal, Board Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon
