Dr. Armstrong is the man you want doing your neurological surgery. He's an experienced and highly skilled Neurosurgeon. You can also tell that he's a good guy who you'll be able to trust ...good combination when you can find it! And, you'll have his great nursing staff looking after you. Cindy and Natasha were both fantastic. He just did a Posterior Cervical Laminectomy on me, with hardware and fusion. I'm looking forward to getting back to work and life. You can't pay someone back for that.

Good doctor! Horrible practice! I had a Workers Comp injury and needed further surgery. Saw him on 3-27 and had 12 questions typed up for him. My wife took notes! I was waiting to hear when the surgery was and 8 days later he sent a letter ending this and said I left questions at the end of my appointment and did not discuss! Ha! Workers Comp refused any further treatment and I went to VA and they referred me back to him! Went to my appointment in 7-11 and Candace, PA said he won't ever see me!!

Dr Armstrongs office was very rude and unprofessional. Their front office person, Kelly Alexander, requested all the information from my previous Doctors and indicated that she would then schedule my appointment. After putting in all the work to have my records sent I heard nothing for a month. When I called back and requested an appointment Kelly lied and said she was no longer sure the doctor would see me but she would "check". She called back 2 minutes later and said the Dr wouldn't see me.

Had 3 neck surgeries. Dr armstrong was the only one willing to accept the task of trying to repair my broken neck. He saved my life & was by far the best surgeon/neurosurgeon I have ever known.

Wonderful. Explained and showed everything in detail. Answered every single question I had (my list was about 86 questions long). Did regular follow ups on me and displayed genuine concern. He was very comforting and positive.
