Dr. Stoev is such a fantastic surgeon! I was researching Neurosurgeons in my area to get a few opinions on my lower back issues. After meeting with several Neurosurgeons and their nurse practitioners, I instantly felt a huge amount of relief and trust within Dr. Stoev. From my first initial visit I knew I was going to choose him as my surgeon. The hospital was absolutely gorgeous. I have never been to Southern Hills before and this spine unit is brand new with its own private cafe for the patients and their families. I felt like I was staying in a super nice hotel. Everyone was so friendly and put my nerves at ease as I was nervous to undergo surgery. The nurses at Dr. Stoev's office are so helpful they handled everything from scheduling my MRI to helping me with my FMLA paperwork. The entire experience was so wonderful. I would recommend any and everyone to go meet with this doctor! He is such a delight and extremely helpful!

Dr. Stoev is excellent in giving information on the procedure and my diagnosis! I feel so comfortable with him and his staff! I felt right at home from my first appointment all the way to my last. The office is super clean and everyone is extremely friendly! I highly recommend Dr. Stoev and his team! I am now pain free and have "graduated from spine surgery"! Thank you for giving me my life back!

Dr. Stoev has en excellent bedside manner. He thoroughly explained my condition and weighed out the risks versus the benefits in my case. He allowed time for questions throughout his explanation. He was concerns not only about my immediate results but about my long term health.

I started seeing Dr. Stoev about a year ago, and from the beginning he has explained everything in a way I could understand, especially what needed to be done for my health. In June of 2019 he preformed a lower spinal fusion and it went very smoothly. If you want to get rid of your pain that you are having then Dr. Stoev is the only one you need to see.
