Had a anterior cervical disectomy for neck pain. After, surgery the pain got worse. A year later after several injections by a phsyiatrist, it was determined to be facet syndrome. THANKS Dr. Senter for disectomy.

I was referred to Dr. Senter for a second opinion regarding upcoming surgery. I found Dr. Senter exceptionally rude, arrogant, slanderous to colleagues. He knew the outcome of his recommendation before he ever looked at a single film or evaluated me. He did not listen to my story and only heard what he was wanting to hear. I would not send my worst enemy to this man and I have nothing to gain by saying this. I'd give him zero stars but that's not an option.

My family has never gotten over Dr. Senter's exceptionally rude treatment of my Father, who was a well respected physician. While Dad thought highly of Dr. Senter's medical knowledge and skill, he was appalled by his arrogant and demeaning behavior. Dr. Senter should be ashamed of himself to the degree to which we are upset by his complete lack of courtesy to his elderly colleague and patient. We as a family will rely on Dad's medical colleagues to refer us elsewhere should the need arise.

On August 27,2015 Dr. Senter performed a lamenectomy on me.L 3-4 with fusion and a graft. He was very professional and truthful about what I could expect both before and after sugery. It is now January 12,2016 and I am feeling very good. The pain I had in my right leg is gone and I am working to regain the strength. In it. I would highly recommend Dr. SENTER
