I find Dr Fahrbach to be honest, friendly, and comfortable to talk to. Had spinal surgery which was successful. Walking immediately. Entire experience was very good. I had tremendous pain before surgery, after surgery very little pain. After recovery I had no pain.

Terrible! I saw a P.A. who had less knowledge than I did about my spine. Run don't walk to the next real doctor They sent me for an epidural. I got a second opinion and in my case that would not be a good option, if not dangerous
