What People Say About Dr. Kimathi Doss, MD
RecentMost Helpful
Reply
For me to have another spinal surgery in was ready scared of the not knowing. Dr Doss explained everything to where I understood everything clearly. He went over my MRIs and even showed me exactly what he was seeing and how he could correct it. He never once pushed me into having the surgery but did tell all the risks involved and how it could help relieve some of the pain I was having but as with any surgery it's not a guarantee. I would definitely be returning if other problems occurred.

If you are reading this then you are probably looking for a doctor. You will not find a better surgeon than Dr. Doss. Dr. Doss performed a 3 level ACDF on me 8/2017 and I am very happy with the results. I also found Dr. Doss by reading all the reviews I could find. I am now 7 months post op and just had X-ray to confirm that the fusion has taken place. Dr. Doss is very down to earth and explains and answers all questions.

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.
