Dr. Stokes is great! I had back surgery with another doctor that put me in worse shape than I was before surgery. I could barely walk, and had terrible nerve pain in my back and down my left hip and leg to my shin. He also discovered a fracture in one of my vertebrae that was most likely caused by the previous doctor. I saw 5 doctors and chose Dr. Stokes as he was the most thorough, down to earth, and upfront with what needed to be done (L4-L5 fusion). It wasn't easy, but Dr. Stokes and his sta

I don't know who Larry from Cedar Park talked with, but it's not the Dr. Stokes I met with for over an hour to discuss my back problem. He was friendly, professional, and very informative. What an outstanding professor he will be! Such a fine teacher. Haven't had surgery yet, but feel very comfortable with him in charge. Kudos to the staff for their help and their positive attitude.

Dr. Stokes is one of the most caring, most personable, and most competent doctors I have ever had the pleasure of knowing in my 62 years of life. For over 30 years, I suffered from severe back pain, neck pain, and carpal tunnel syndrome. After an MRI revealed that I had cervical stenosis and degenerative disc disease, I was fortunate enough to find Dr. Stokes. He performed anterior and posterior cervical fusion C-3-6, and I am now 3 months post op and feeling better than I have felt in years!

I called Dr. Stokes for help with sever back pain. I had all my images ready. Called the dr. and got the run around. Later when i finally got to talk to the Dr. he told me basically that I was Not worth his time. I would NOT got to this man for a bandaid!! He is RUDE, unethical and just not a good guy!!
Very obviously caring and spent lot of time explaining my back issues.
