My results were exceptional so it is easy for me to praise Dr Hale as an awesome surgeon. In addition, and very important to me, Dr Hale also calls back 100% of the time and then is not trying to rush you off the phone because he cares about you.

Dr. Hale is extremely professional and explains everything with details and easy to understand. His bedside manner is excellent. His PA, Peter is amazingly competent. I am so blessed to have found such a great doctor during a time that was very painful for me. They have gone above and beyond what was needed for my care and I am eternally grateful. Office staff is professional and efficient. Thank you!

When I met Dr. Hale, it was the first time I felt like I wasn't alone in my fight against back pain. I could sense that it truly bothered him that I was experiencing pain. He assured me that he would do everything in his power to get me back to my old self, I believed him and he followed through. I can't say enough about him, thank you Dr. Hale!

Office Staff made a HUGE mistake. Had an appointment in May cancelled for a medical emergency and then the reschedule with the wrong physician! Mind you the other physician was great but I wanted to see an expert and I got a physicians assistant who is great but still not the expert I wanted to see.

Dr. Hale is the best doctor I have ever had. I was in extreme pain for 3 years and could hardly walk and three other doctors misdiagnosed me. I had a fusion approximately 3 months ago and I feel great. I recommend Dr. Hale to any patient that has any kind of back trouble.
