He put 6 screws in my back. Flopped like a fish for 5 days. Then figured out he frayed a nerve. Had to remove it, and I've had muscle spasms, no reflexes, sciatica to name a few problems. I would never trust this man again in my life!

As a former Marine, the VA has been a struggle. Dr Maxwell took my problem seriously. Thank GOD for him. I just had surgery and I can support my family more. I needed lumbar surgery, scary but it finally was done. Most respectful Dr I've ever met, and he's a VETERAN!
