Lorena is one of the sweetest nurses I have ever had. Dr kjeldgaard & his staff are very patient & explain everything.
I felt like that he was sincere about getting me back to feel like new again. I had been in pain before and since my surgery on my back in 2016, from a doctor in Grapevine. Really horrible doctor that did the only surgery on my back. I am VERY thankful to have gotten in to see Dr. Kjeldgaard. I t has been a very successful surgery by him and healing quickly. Thank you!!

I was injured by a defective air bag, I found out that I had multiple failing disks that were causing extreme back pain from the clinic. I agreed to let this guy perform what he called his favorite surgery, afterwards I started having extreme nerve pain and suffering more than prior to the surgery. He missed my spine with a screw and drilled it into the soft tissue next to my spine into a nerve cluster and next to a artery. I told him I was having severe pain and was treated as a drug seeker.

Terrible customer service. Rude staff at front desk of Hurst location. I had the hardest time getting any help with my back. I had to wait a month for my prescription to finally be sent over to my pharmacy for pain medication. I only went to this office because my job referred me to the closest location but I wish I would have just paid out of pocket at a location out of state. It would have saved me time and stress. The staff then scheduled me for my followup at a completely different location

Dr. Kjeldgaard does Great work and I would recommend him to anyone!!!! He did a disc replacement on C4-5 for me, very happy:):):), Thank you Sir.
Weatherford, TX |
Dr K. replaced 2 herniated discs in my neck. His skills and bedside manner are the best. He is a Christian who prays with u before surgery. He explains everything in detail including any good or bad results of his treatment. I highly recommend this man. Love him!
in Keller, TX |
I have been living with back pain for at least 10 years, and was very skeptical of having surgery based on horror stories I've heard from so many people. It was time, I could not longer live with the pain. Dr. Kjeldgaard was very truthful and upfront with me throughout the entire process. He and his staff were very caring and professional. The surgery was a spinal fusion and took about two hours. I was up and walking later that day. The next afternoon, I walked 2 pain free miles!

I could not ask to have someone caring for my wife with skill, compassion and most of all prayers as Dr. Kjeldgaard.
in Arlington, TX |
I chose Dr Kjelgaard because I have had 2 cervical surgeries and had no relief. I believe that I will have success and relief this time. He listens and offers choices. he makes sure all questions are answered.
