Our experience with Dr. Degen and his caring, efficient staff couldn't be more different than those of the Apr 16, 2016 poster. My 90 year old uncle was diagnosed with NPH. The doctor spent all the time we needed choosing options. My uncle chose to have a VP shunt inserted. The operation was perfect. Follow-ups go unhurriedly. Dr. Degen then dictates his note right in front of us so that any corrections can be made immediately. He is transparent. We were lucky to have found this neurosurgeon.

Dr. Degen is the absolute best. He explained everything in detail and listened to all questions. In addition, the surgery that he performed was MUCH less invasive then our first opinion. Almost immediately after surgery my husband felt feelings in his fingers again and NO PAIN except for a bit from the surgical site. But no cervical neck pain. A month later my husband is doing great and the PT staff (at a separate facility) are thrilled at how well he is coming along! Dr. Degen and his staff A++
Was very short, didn't explain anything, was obvious he didn't care about anything except getting another patient rushed in and out of his busy schedule.

Dr Degen made an extremely difficult experience bareable. He removed a tumor from my Husbands spine and had him back to work in within the year. We are so incredibly grateful to have found him.
