Excellent Doctor. Does not recommend surgery unless it's necessary, My wife visited another doctor first and he wanted to schedule surgery on both her upper and lower back ASAP. Dr Walpert suggested doing only the upper at this time and do physical therapy on the lower back because she felt surgery would not ease the pain. The surgery went great and we both have bee very impressed with the results and the follow up visits. I would highly recommend Dr. Walpert to anyone.

I Love Dr. Kimberly Walpert! Some years ago I experienced severe neck pain. I was recommended by a friend to check out Dr. Walpert. I'm so glad I did. I went to her office, she got right to work and found my problem. We scheduled surgery and it was successful. I have done well in the past years. I am not totally pain free but there is vast improvement. Recently I have experienced lumber pain and once again I am turning to Dr. Walpert for my care. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Kimberly Walpert.

Dr Walpert explained everything to me and then fixed my back. She is a pure joy to be around. Super Doctor!
Thank you Elizabeth!

Dr. Walpert performed a spinal surgery on me to correct mistakes made in two surgeries by another doctor, a triple lumbar fusion which left me with a shredded dura and in considerable pain. He had not addressed nerve damage to my colon and bladder which had left me unable to control either. Dr. Walpert repaired the damage to the dura and left me with hope that my colon and bladder control would return. I am much better than I was before, and Dr. Walpert LISTENS to her patients.

Dr. Walpert is so sweet. You actually feel like she cares for you and not just another patient. She is taking good care of me. I would recommend her to anyone.
