      Wonderful caring doctor who finally gave me answers about my herniated disc. So compassionate and his nurse Tammy was just as kind. Wish I would have gone to Dr. Maroon first! Thank you for helping me!

      I could not have been more pleased. I came for a 2nd opinion, and expected the doc to "blow me off" I have cervical spine problems. instead, he spent a tremendous amount of time explaining things, and came up with a recommendation to do a nerve block. The other doc recommended spinal fusion, and seemed to say injections dont work. We'll ultimately see if this works, but it is a much more conservative approach.

      This Dr. came highly recommended, (confirmed doctor for WWE athletes). Saw him in 2013 to diagnose my extreme chronic low back pain/lump. After reviewing my files and scans, immediate diagnosed me with Schuermann's disease and recommended me to another doctor in the UPMC network for care.
