Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Sales "Dr. Sales and The Summit Spine Institute was recently named one of the Nation's top 100 spine surgery practices, and the only spine surgeon in NW and Central Oregon. While we are proud of this honor, our efforts have always been directed at patient care, and we feel this is just a reflection of our patient driven philosophy. We focus on minimally invasive spine surgery and allowing patients to return to their activities as soon as possible with minimal stress."

After being hit head on by a drunken driver, Dr. Sales took on the task of repairing my spine. I am eternally grateful for his talent and success in my case. It is because of Dr. Sales that I live in much less pain every day. There are not enough words to describe my gratitude.
Thank you for your kind words.
Thank you for your comment!

Dr. Rafe Sales performed an L2 fracture/fusion on my spine in October 2010 and even though I have a 'new normal' regarding pain management I have got to say that the entire experience since my injury and up to now (June 2017) hasn't been anything like I have been told by others who've dealt with similar procedures. I believe he did a wonderful job and he has an awesome bedside manner as well. Thank you Dr. Sales and you're still as cute as you were when you first came to see me in the hospital!
Thank you for your nice comment.

Summer of 2016 I hired the wrong personal trainer and severely herniating my L5/S1 disc. My personal doctor recommended I see Dr. Sales and I am forever grateful. My surgery was Sept. 2016 and my back is 100%, and has been since Jan. 2017. The sciatica was immediately gone after surgery (which is epic in itself) and I carefully followed the post procedure instructions & physical therapy. If you have a back injury, you don't have to live in pain, do yourself a favor and call Dr. Sales.
Thank you for your kind words.

Poor communication about what to expect post-surgery. Staff provided conflicting information. Was treated rudely and dismissively, especially by the Patient Coordinator. I was in the most pain I've ever experienced post surgery and was given little care and attention. I would not recommend.
Thank you for your feedback. We strive to provide outstanding patient care and apologize for your bad experience. Please reach out to our office manager 503-546-3503 so we can ensure better experience next time.

Excellent communicator. Explained everything in detail. Liked that he had a sense of humor ( important to me). Third opinion for surgery and he was the most conservative which I so appreciated.
Thank you for your great feedback.
in Beaverton, OR |
He was very easy to talk and took very good care in explaining what was going on and what needed to be done.
Thank you for sharing your feedback.

Empathic, compassionate, smart, efficient, puts his ego well below the well being of the patient: a rare model of what a doctor should be.
Thank you for sharing such kind comments.

great surgeon and very nice office
in McMinnville, OR |
He explained What was going on with my back very clearly and specifically. Very compassionate. His staff was very professional but very friendly. Did not feel rushed out of the office because of other patients waiting.
We appreciate your feedback.

Dr.Sales did my surgery 6 months ago and did a wonderful job. I was able to return to daily activities soon after surgery. I highly recommend him. He?s a great surgeon. Also his office staff is very nice and professional.
Thank you for sending such kind and enthusiastic complements. We certainly appreciate your review.
