Great doctor and friendly staff. My husband had surgery here and has had amazing results. Better mobility and less pain. He only had the surgery recently so we are both real happy with the results. Doctor Summers came highly recommended. I would recommend this surgery and this doctor. Thank you

Anybody who has just been referred here can be assured they are in the very best hands. I was treated as an individual with unique symptoms and really felt listened to. I feel so much better after surgery and have not had any problems since my surgery in March. Dr. Summers was caring and professional.

There is no chance of me recommending this Dr. to anyone. See her at your own risk. She almost killed me. I can never have children because I had to have 19 CT scans in less than a year & 3 spinal biopsies & many other procedures. Then she nearly severed my sciatic nerve at the root. My condition continues to deteriorate. All of this because I got a terrible infection in a part of my soine that was pristine.

Great doctor. Very professional and my surgery went well. Would recommend to others.

I had back surgery for a pinched sciatic nerve. Dr. Summers shaved my disk in my back. After the surgery, I got a system infection caused from bacteria that grows on the skin, and it almost killed me. I was on antibiotics for six months. The surgery had to be redone twice because of spinal fluid leaks. My feet are now numb, and I have back pain, which did not exist prior to the surgery.

Had a spinal fusion last spring. Now able to move without pain and have regained lost flexibility. Back at work an very happy.
