Dr. Reeves was very professional, his staff was excellent, and unlike other doctors I had seen I felt no pressure to decide on having the spinal fusion surgery. Dr. Reeves didn't try to sway me in either direction. He presented the facts as they were and removed himself from the equation so I could make an informed decision. They have been responsive with anything I've needed related to anything falling under their area of responsibility. This was by far my best experience with regard to sur

I owe Dr Reeves and his staff a huge amount of gratitude. I had issues that brought me to the ER, and Dr. Reeves happened to be at the hospital that day. He took the time to come talk to me and I GENUINELY felt like he truly cared about me getting better quickly. He operated on me the next day, and it was a SATURDAY. After the surgery, he checked on me OFTEN and was truly a pleasant doctor to work with. Basically, he came across as more of friend than a doc.. GREAT GUY and great staff!

Extremely smart and explains everything in detail for me to understand. Spent time with me and answered every question that I had. I never felt rushed like I do at some other clinics. I woke up in the recovery room after surgery out of pain and have been able to live my life again thanks to him!!

Dr. Reeves did a wonderful job on my back surgery. Very professional. Glad I didn't waste my time going to the metroplex. I had a fast recovery.

I would NOT recommend Dr. Reeves to family or friends. I have had an infection that was not treated by Dr. Reeves, but was blamed on an allergic reaction to a specific surgical device. I have had recurring issues and he has had no interest in being proactive in helping treat my problems long term. I have now switched doctors in the DFW area.

Dr Reeves operated on me and tore me apart. The man shouldn't be allowed to operate.
