De. Stoev is wonderful! I had a back injury which required surgery. He walked me through what was going to happen and what my plan will be. He is very thorough and put my mind at as much ease. He is very patient and kind. Also thank you to super start Kaitlyn! Once again this was my first surgery and she was so kind answering all my post op question and concerns. She always got back to me in an above reasonable fashion. I was probably a pain in the butt but they never made me feel that way. Thank you.

The last 2 weeks have been nothing short than exhausting especially for Brent. We were sent home from the Bone and Joint Institute 3 different times in the last 2 weeks saying it’s just a pinched nerve and that he would have to “hang in there” until the 29th for an MRI even though I called them begging and pleading to please get him rushed in today because something was wrong and they couldn’t make it happen and offered him no help???? By the grace of God, I called Kaitlyn O'Connor because my sister reminded me she worked for one of the top neurosurgeons. After explaining his symptoms she said he absolutely must be seen today. We were admitted to Southern Hills for an MRI and he ended up having to have surgery today on his neck. He had severely herniated C6/C7 causing it to pinch a nerve which made his arm go numb( which apparently is very serious despite The Bone and Joint Institute not thinking so)??????? Surgery was his only option. HIGHLY recommend Dr. Stoev!

Dr. Stoev is very professional and very friendly. He told me everything he saw on my mri and i was shocked at the results. But he made me comfortable and reassured me that he could help me with these problems. I believed in him and i am so glad i did! I has back surgery and his work was perfect! I recovered quickly and have zero pain now!!!!

Dr. Stoev from day one was both educational and consistent with the information. He did not make me feel as though it was impending doom, but was very straight forward about my diagnosis and my surgical treatment plan. He also arranged the additional needs for ablation and more. Dr. Stoev was extremely like-able and helpful. He checked on me every day while I was in the hospital and all the office visits after were again educational. On a couple occasions they worked me in due to other concerns and they were patient and kind. I would (and have) referred others to him and praise his work. Kaitlyn O'Connor (his assistant), was so exceptional as well. She was receptive to my needs and extremely accommodating! Personable, friendly, and kind! I LOVE THESE GUYS!!!

I cannot say enough about how AMAZING Dr. Stoev is. I went to 3 different neurosurgeons before him, none would take the time to actually review my MRIs, tgey just wanted to jump into cutting me open. When I got to my first appointment with Dr. Stoev he had already reviewed ALL of my previous MRIs and had notes..about me! He is very talented, up to date with all the latest practices and LISTENES, Answers ALL your questions. he really cares about his patients, his nurse, Kaitlyn is an absolute sweetheart as well. Skip Vanderbilt, Howell Allen Clinic..don't waste your time! Dr. Stoev is by far the best neurosurgeon in the state of Tennessee!

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!

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!
