My experience with Dr. Pauza was exceptional. He spent a great deal of time explaining the procedure and answered every question I had. He is kind, caring and compassionate. Prior to seeing Dr. Pauza I had 2 surgeries (micro discectomy/laminectomy and 4 months later another micro discectomy on the same disc L4/L5). He explained that I would most likely experience increased discomfort for a period of time. 2 weeks later my pain is a level 2. I am looking forward regaining my active lifestyle!

Dr. Pauza is amazing. He treats us like more than a number, he always remembers us, and he is very kind. He helps us make the best choice when it comes to procedures, and is always willing to work with us to save as much money as we can. His staff is amazing too. Liz treats us like a member of the family, and always remembers our first names and helps us so much with everything. Scheduling is quick and easy as well. we couldn't ask for a better doctor or doctor's office.
