I have been a patient for many years and Dr Ira and Dr Marc are amazing doctors. There isn't anyone else I would trust for my back surgeries. They are compassionate and very thorough and never make me feel rushed. Whenever I call for an appointment they get me in right away. Morgan, Anne and the office staff are very friendly and go above and beyond to help you. I would highly recommend this practice and I have to many friends. Thanks to entire team for everything you have done for me.

I have a great deal to be thankful to Dr. Chernoff for my ability to walk and function in a normal manner! I cannot thank Ira Chernoff enough for making my life normal once again!

I had a herniated disc with fragmentation. Unfortunately, my surgery had to go directly through my tattoo. Amazingly, the doctor was able to put it back together nicely. Also, my back is better. Highly recommended!!

Marc and Ira Chernoff are brothers that are so caring. The surgery that they performed on me went as explained and I am up and on the road to recovery. I would recommend them to everyone that needs spinal surgery.

Dr. Ira Chernoff performed a double-fusion operation on my lower spine. I'm currently healing but so far, happy with the progress I'm making toward recovery.

While serving in Iraq, in 2009, I began having moderate to severe back pain. After my time in the military was over, I sought out Dr. Ira and Marc Chernoff who were able to schedule me for surgery within 4 weeks of my first visit with them. He and his brother are exceptional surgeons. They are extremely courteous and will take the time to listen to all of your concerns. If you are having back pain, please see them, as they are very meticulous and thorough with treating his patients.

I was living with back pain 24/7 and unable to walk for more than a half hour. Dr. Chernoff & his staff were always very caring & thorough! After being diagnosed with spinal stenosis, he explained to me my options, surgery being one of them, in a way that I could understand. I felt very comfortable & knew I was in good hands. I am happy to say, I had the surgery & I am pain free and enjoying life again! I have a better quality of life now because of Dr. Chernoff & would highly recommend!!
