Discovery Bay, CA |
We (husband and I) would highly recommend Dr. Long for consultation and back surgery. Dr. Long made us feel very comfortable, explained everything in detail in simple terms as well as using pictures. We asked questions she answered without talking down to us. I felt great immediately, wanted to go about my normal day within 3 days (but I was good). Thank you Dr. Long

If there is a rating beyond outstanding, Dr Long/her staff are well beyond that. Been at it over a decade trying to overcome back pain that started with leg numbness. Used daily Jacuzzi baths, core strengthening, rigorous exercise 5 d/wk, pushing PT to the insurance limits, drugs, and finally steroid injections. Researched on my own, talked to 3-4 surgeons, but had my Eureka moment when I was finally introduced to her/Coflex. In recovery now. Totally caring, excellent explanations, superb staff.

Extremely knowledgeable Compassionate Took time to fully explain my condition and any procedures being considered not only to me but to family or friends with me Did not in any way pressure me to have the surgery Overall excellent experience and well worth the drive to get to her offices
