Patient Comments (4)
in San Rafael, CA |
Dr. Metz is extremely knowledgeable on diseases/pathologies of the spine. He explained my spine degeneration, plan of treatment, and possible progression all while walking through MRI and x-ray results with me. I also found his bedside manner and inter-personal skills to be exceptionally good.

Dr Metz is an incredible person and outstanding surgeon. I could not walk going into surgery, came out of surgery with no pain and within 2 weeks I was walking one mile daily (with a walker). Dr Metz is the best!
in Greenbrae, Ca |
He is fantastic! He has true confidence in what he does. He is the first dr. That I have seen (in 28 years) that knows how to address my congenital cervical auto fusion! He can look long term and short term in managing symptoms.
in Mill Valley, CA |
I was very impressed by Dr. Metz. His manner was friendly and engaging and inspired confidence. He explained clearly and in satisfying and extensive detail his diagnosis and proposed course of treatment and the basis for his conclusions. He was careful to explain what was known and unknown about my condition so that I would not have unreasonable expectations. I am quite happy that I am a patient of Dr. Metz.
