I chose Dr. Stevenson from his good reviews on healthgrades.com. He was very thorough with his diagnosis and explanation of my options. I elected for surgery. It was a successful procedure. His PA Vance Amos updated us every morning and Dr. Stevenson checked on me in the evenings. I was in the hospital 4 days. It's now been 10 days and I am pain free and should be back to work in a week or so. I highly recommend Dr. Stevenson and Vance. Thanks to NFRMC also. James in White Springs

Was recommended from pain clinic for a cervical spinal cord stimulator. Amazing how much it has helped. I had no problems with Dr Stevenson or any of his staff. All professional. Excellent care and office staff. Worst part was food at hospital. Care at hospital was excellent.

went today July 26 to see Dr Stevenson with my wife Barbara, outstanding personable doctor. The wait time best I experience in years. It is actually nice to see a doctor that actually he himself explains to the patient what is wrong and how to take care of the problem in a way that it makes the patient feel comfortable. most doctors now days do not even see he patient , they actually have PA do it and still we have to pay the fee that a real doctor charges. i

I love Dr Stevenson. He is very professional as well as his PA Vance. Visited everyday while I was in the hospital and was very courteous. I would highly recommend him. I valued his opinion as well as what would be in my best interest for my health. Thank you for helping me!

Despite a six week wait to see this practitioner, it was clear that he had not taken the time to sufficiently (at all?) review my case history, nor had he invested time in actually looking at my recent MRI results. Instead, he simply reviewed the radiologist report and based his comments on it alone. It was clear that my failure to act crippled enough gave him the impression that my issues were not worthy of his full attention. Nice enough guy, but complete waste of time professionally.
