Dr. Dryer did spinal surgery on me 11 years ago with wonderful results and that's why there was no question of who to bring my daughter to when she was having severe siatic pain. Dr. Dryer explained everything to her and she is feeling so much better. NYU was a wonderful hospital and all the nurses in pre-op and recovery were just as professional and caring as she was 19 and extremely scared. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dr. Dryer
