Sparks, NV |
PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE SCHEDULING WITH "SPINE NEVADA"! Dr. James Lynch is amazing and he is respected in his field. He personally, literally saved my life. This being said, the growth of his company is LEAVING an undeserved bad reputation to his personal accomplishments. Spine Nevada employs some of the most unprofessional people I have encountered. If you need help, SEE ONLY DR. LYNCH! Trust me...you will be "unhappy" or WORSE if you assume that "Spine NV" accurately represents Dr. Lynch.
Greetings, Thank you for sharing this experience. On behalf of Dr. Lynch, we would welcome the opportunity to learn more. My name is Molly Caneday, Director of Strategic Development and Marketing. Please give me a call at 775-235-8560 at your convenience. Kind regards, Molly
