What People Say About Dr. Lokesh Tantuwaya, MD

DR. Tantuwaya has done amazing things for my back pain! He is kind, thorough and all around brilliant! I highly recommend him to anyone in need of a neurosurgeon! I have NEVER. Felt rushed, he listens to my every word and explains everything in a way that is easy to understand. He is excellent at explaining the procedures and the expectations. He is truly a kind man.

I have been a patient of Dr.Tantuwaya since 2012. I have had two surgeries on my back and one on my neck I came out with flying colors. He's a very good Doctor,he listens to your needs,and explains what happens before surgery and prepares you for your recovery after surgery.
