Dr. Rich performed neck and back surgery on me and I could not be more pleased with the results. Also he is so personable: not your typical neurosurgeon God complex personality.
in Clayton, NC |
Dr. Rich has done 6 surgeries for me and my wife and I trust him with my care. He is very good at what he does and I have recommended him to several people.
