Doctor very thorough. Wait too long compared with other Doctors. Focus was on lumbar spine when I am really more concerned about cervical and thoracic spine

Dr. Aymond did a 2 level disc surgery on me and did disc surgery twice on my husband! He is an excellent surgeon and everyone in his office is super pleasant. He is very quiet, but his bedside manner is excellent and he is a good listener. He also did surgery on my father in law. I wouldn't trust any other surgeon. I highly recommend Dr. Aymond and his staff! Shout out to Laurie who is super sweet!

I have been seeing Dr. Aymond for a few years now. I have had both spinal fusion and cervical fusion surgeries by him. Dr. Aymond listens to his patients, is kind, compassionate, and tries to alleviate pain without surgery first, something I appreciate in a surgeon. And his surgical skills are first rate After a recent MRI, the radiology techs asked who did the work, exclaiming that his work was textbook perfect, something they do not often see. I cannot recommend Dr. Aymond highly enough!

i saw Dr Aymond 4 years ago with lower back pain and sciatica. He did x-rays and MRI. i had multiple problems with L4 L5. After trying shots and physical therapy I decided that i should get the fusion surgery. DrAymond left the decision up to me. After a 5 hr. surgery with rods, screws and grafts my lower back and leg if free of pain and i can play golf again. i would highly recommend this doctor!

Dr. Aymond is a great Doctor, I think all the negativity in the reviews must be from people trying to get painkillers or something. He has a perfectly fine bedside manner. My experience is as follows: 1) met with doctor Aymond, he diagnosed me with a herniated disc and ordered an MRI to facilitate a treatment plan. 2) Got a phone call from his nurse to schedule an MRI and a followup appointment with Dr A. 3) MRI 4) he gave me all the possible options for proceeding and recommendation.

I needed xrays done of neck and back as I filed for disability, not just for that, but, disability does not accept chiro's xrays I told the receptionist that is why I needed to be seen. Come to find out by Dr. Aymond who was rude about said he does not deal with disability. He did not take xrays and went off my chiro's exrays. I feel like My mom is owed her $50 back as they knew up front why I was coming there and they went ahead and scheduled me knowing Dr. Aymond does not deal with Disability

I was referred to Dr. Aymond for my lower back pain. He immediately had me take an X ray. When he finally came in the room after 30 minutes, he handed me a sheet of paper that said "Diagnosis: Lumbrosacral pain" and walked out very abruptly without explaining anything. The nurse refused to bring him back in the room since he was "too busy with other patients." I can only assume that once Dr. Aymond discovered I didn't need surgery, he saw me as a low value patient and treated me as such.

spent no time assessing me or listening to me. Horrible doctor! Told me it was just a pulled muscle despite looking at X-rays. I just had a spinal fusion from another doctor due to a L3-5 fracture! Stay away from him!!!

Dr. Ayman's is a great doctor. He is a good listener and knows the right questions to ask. When I went to see him about my back we tried several things. He left it up to me when to decide to have surgery. In other words when I reach the point where I couldn't walk without terrible pain was time to have the surgery. My surgery was over seven hours and he put in 2 rods and six screws to stabilize the vertebra in my back. He was diligent in getting me through my rehab. Today pain-free!
