Doctor Doss performed an emergency procedure on my Mother for a Subdural Hematoma. He was remarkable, his rapport with the patient is exemplary. The follow up from his team specifically CHris, the PA was wonderful. Since the initial procedure my Mom has experienced other complications caused by blood thinners due to A fib. Each time the level of service from this group has been excellent. Kathy Mills

Dr. Doss always listens to you with great enthusiasm to helping you getting out of pain, he is the first person in 20 years to help me with my back pain and is willing to help me. I have great respect for him also because of the widespread pain I have is not just in one spot, it is in several area's and he is willing to fix all of them.
I love Dr Doss and his staff . He always takes his time and explains everything. He did my neck fusion 2 years . Am currently seeing him again for a different problem that he is working on to correct .
