    I was on medication for pinched nerve in my neck, which was no longer effective. Dr. Scrantz did a neck fusion, which completely solved that problem. Once off the medication, we found out it was also treating issues with my lower back. Dr. Scrantz tried everything he could to avoid surgery, but after waiting the appropriate amount of time, and making no promises, he did surgery again. I am excited to say that too worked. Evidently, the culprit was bone spurs!

    I love Dr. Scrantz, he is amazing!! He was always so nice and easy to talk to, he explained everything so that I understood exactly what he was talking about. He always asked if I had any questions and took the time to answer them honestly. I would absolutely recommend him to family and friends.

    Brain tumor which was like sticking your hand in a pile of snakes. Poor prognosis and high risk. High profile case with lots watching and Dr. Scrantz went in, scalpel flying, and got 99% out. Courageous and skilled. Needs a sixth star!

    Dr. Scrantz was confident, concerned, and helpful. He and his staff were professional and attentive. The entire office was well organized and business flowed, decreasing wait time and increasing obtaining quality care.
