Smart Aleck, this doctor is lazy, on both visits waited over an hour, he does NOT know how to read a CT scan or MRI. did not take any time with us to review results. We do not recommend this doctor to ANY one.!!!

This Dr was awesome..Dr Bonnen ( and is P A was also one of the nicest and knowledgeable women I have ever seen in a Dr's office. Dr Bonnen explained everything to me so that I could understand what my back procedure would be like. Very caring and compassionate Dr

My experience, TERRIBLE Waited for over an hour past my appointment time and after driving over 200 miles to see this doctor. I find out when I get there that a family of 4 had the very same appointment time as I did. We were all scheduled for 2:30, so I waited and waited. At 3:30 I got my $40 co pay refunded and I left his office. A very long wait time is normal for this office. Do yourself a favor, this doctor is way to busy. FIND ANOTHER DOCTOR
