Excellent!!! I am 3 weeks post surgery and already out walking and doing things I couldn't do because of the pain. When you hear back or spine surgery you immediately get scared like I was. Dr. Hullinger and the office staff were very comforting and took the time to walk me through exactly what I was dealing with and what the recovery would be like post operation. Thank You Doc.. Rich M

Dr. Hullinger has a wonderful bedside manner. She is very friendly and thorough. She takes her time explaining everything and going over all your options, pros and cons of each. She exudes confidence without an ounce of arrogance, as a result you feel at ease putting yourself in her very capable hands. Her staff is fantastic as well. Everyone we have dealt with has been friendly, thorough and extremely efficient. I would highly recommend her to anyone experiencing pain related to the spine.

Dr. Hullinger was a perfect match for my trepidation to spine surgery. I had been to another location and was not given options except for shots. She too started with shots but they used to verify her diagnosis after very complete examines with x-rays and MRI. Options were available and I was not rushed into a decision but shots do not last, surgery does. Explanations of my condition and options were complete. I would recommend her to anyone who experiences back pain.

I saw her for consultation on April 12, 2016 for lower back pain. She was wonderful, extremely thorough and very personable. Did not rush me. She was on time and her office staff was very nice.
