Dr. Dorward performed an anterior cervical discectomy fusion on me in November, 2018. I walked out of the hospital completely void of pain for the first time in many months. I was given pain meds on release from the hospital. I promptly took them to the police station for destruction. It’s been four months since my surgery and I can honestly say that I haven’t felt this good in years. Dr. Dorward gave me my life back. He truly cares about people. He’s a top notch surgeon.

This is a new kind of Doctor. Not the old breed of so many poor communicating surgeons. Dr Dorward is very skilled, compassionate and kindly personable. My neck surgery is huge success and I’m grateful for his excellent care. Thank you Dr. Dorward!

I was referred to Dr Dorward by my neurosurgeon, as I have a very complex back condition. I left numerous messages with Dawn (med assistant) none were returned. I finally went to office to talk to someone, and the office manager Rhonda, has been most helpful. Since my 1st surgery in April was cancelled 4 days prior, due to Ins refusing to pay for the BMP . The precert dept submitted the claim wrong. I'm still dealing with appeals. I have BEGGED to talk to Dr before my major surgery, and can't
