Patient Comments (5)
in Rockwall, Tx |
Several month ago I started having pain in my back and my legs were numb. After trying a variety of things, I was referred to Dr. Ju. He started immediately trying to find the cause of my pain and recommended surgery after a thorough exam, including a complete physical and mental health exam. The morning after surgery, at least 50 % of the numbness was gone and the pain was greatly decreased. It has been 3,5 months since surgery and I have returned to normal activity. Dr. Ju is outstanding!

I found Dr. Ju very easy to talk to. He took the time to explain the surgery, risks, post-op expectations etc. I never felt rushed, and all my questions were fully answered. The surgery was very successful, exceeding my expectations. Post-op pain was very manageable. Dr Ju was very responsive on my follow up appointments. Wait times at his Rockwall office were reasonable.

I met with other doctors before pursuing back surgery. While they were all skilled, I was never comfortable with them, their confidence, their kindness and their care of me as the patient, until meeting with Dr. Ju. He was patient with my questions. He worked me into his schedule quicker than expected. He was even kind of my kids in the exam room. The surgery went perfect, and recovery was better than anticipated. I have already recommended him to several friends.

Dr. Ju performed surgery for my herniated disc. The procedure was successful and my recovery was quick. Dr. Ju followed my progress closely and I am very favorably impressed.

Dr. Ju came to my rescue! Unfortunately the Team at the Back Institute didn't have time for me when I showed up at the facility in Rockwall, TX very much in pain and could not walk. In fact I felt as if I was causing them a great inconvenience. I ended up going to the ER, had an MRI. Dr. Ju reviewed it and saw an extremely herniated disc at L5/S1. He performed surgery and now, 6 weeks later I am pain free and walking! I will continue to see Dr. Ju due to chronic spine issues.
