I was referred to Dr. Hoski by another Dr. at Carolina Spine & Neurosurgery for back pain. Dr. Hoski set up an appointment for surgery and since then I have been pain free. I am totally impressed by the whole experience dealing with him and his staff and I would highly recommend him and Carolina Spine to anyone with back pain to be evaluated.

Dr. Hoski performed surgery on me for spinal stenosis. I was having trouble moving my right leg, and was having problems with balance and numbness. The surgery was successful, and I am walking better. The other issues have diminished. He fully explained everything prior to the surgery, and I am pleased with my experience with him and his staff! I also love the "Follow My Health" app for my phone!

I had two bone spurs that were pressing on nerves removed from my spine. Dr Hoski is a terrific communicator, not knife happy and reviewed my options with me while letting me look at what he was seeing from the MRI. Couldn't have been more pleased with his competency, his staff and Mission Memorial. All my hip pain is gone now.

Had a followup visit after spinal surgery. The surgery was a success -- I no longer have sciatica. Dr. Hoski took the time to review the correct way to do my personalized yoga routine. I appreciate his attentiveness and helpfulness.

A gentle patient Dr who wreaks with confidence. Reminds us of EF Hutton - When Dr Hoski talks - you listen. Wouldn’t hesitate to return or recommend.

This is the best doctor in the USA. If you ask a question you will get an answer. I couldn't hardly walk. And two days after surgery I was walking and now 8 weeks later I will be hiking and hunting the wild boar back in my mountains. There is no better back surgeon in the country.

Four months ago I had a successful three vertebrae laminectomy and a spinal fusion of 4/5 for severe spinal stenosis. Dr. Hoski is very experienced, knowledgeable, approachable and personable. He explained my condition and his recommended procedure in great detail, while answering all of my questions. The three hour surgery and subsequent recovery were flawless. Since I live alone, after two days in the hospital I was transferred to an excellent rehab hospital for an additional nine days. Since then I have had two very positive visits with X-rays. It is important that patients understand that nerves damaged by the pressure of stenosis take months to heal. I can give Dr. Hoski nothing but my highest recommendation.

Dr. Hoski and his staff was very professional. I was shown compassion during my whole process with them. He is a great and knowledgeable surgeon. He educated me with my test results. I would go to him again if needed.

I first saw Dr. Hoski 18 years ago when referred to him for a cervical fusion. That surgery proved very effective. I then saw him 7 years later because of issues in the lumbar region, arising from spinal stenosis. His treatment and prognosis helped set me on a course of a very normal lifestyle, even allowing me to run regularly. Now I am seeing him again for a herniated disc and related issues. Again, I am very pleased with his treatment, clear explanation and positive approach.

Excellent, clear, and complete communication. Listened well and approaches issues with concern and insights. Took in the whole picture (physical exam, X-ray, and MRI) before making diagnosis

Dr. Hoski is a wonderful surgeon. He is very caring and compassionate. Everyone we came in contact with at his office was very polite and professional. Dr. Hoski is so knowledgeable and helped us to understand everything about the surgery, what to expect and how to keep it from happening again. I highly recommend Dr. Hoski and would definitely see him again if the need arises.

NICEST doctor I ever met! I was very nervous about my appointment but Dr. Hoski put me at ease. He pointed out what's right with my back and not just what's wrong. He spent 45 minutes asking me questions and listening to my answers. I never felt rushed. He reviewed my MRI with me and recommended physical therapy at this time. If surgery is ever needed in the future, I will feel comfortable putting my back in the good doctor's hands. 5 stars for sure.

Dr. Hoski has excellent communication skills; he does not talk down to you, yet he has a way of making the process simple to understand. And he also is a very good listener. There were times when he was talking to me about a procedure and he was able to tell when I did not understand what he meant, he would either show me physically on office model or compare it with something I could relate with. He has a very professional attitude and demonstrates excellent customer service at all times.

I was not able to get any relief from pain. I could not sit, stand, lay down, walk or sleep without intense pain. Dr. Hoski performed discectomy surgery on me for a herniated disc (on my left side) that adhered to the dura in my spine. The surgery was very successful. However, a few months later I was having issues with my right leg and need surgery for stenosis. This surgery was also successful. Now I am pain free ! :) Dr. Hoski is an extremely skilled Orthopedic Surgeon.

Saw Dr. Hoski because of a severe sciatica condition. He is a very caring doctor. He is a very good listener. He went to great lengths to explain my condition, its causes and treatments. I am feeling much better because of his expertise. I am very satisfied.
