      Dr Lyness spent over 40 minutes with me at our original consultation. She took the time to examine me, show me my MRI in complete detail and then explained my non surgical options. After trying PT, consulting with my family DOC and a neurologist I decided to have the surgery. Again Dr Lyness was wonderful talking with and my wife and I the day of the surgery, then spending much time with my wife after a more complicated than expected surgery on my neck to fuse two levels. She was great!
