The total experience with Dr Love and her staff was excellent . Dr Love reviewed my MRI and explained to me what she could do to relieve my pain , I had spinal stenosis and the operation was uneventful for me with immediate relief from the pain that I had endured for 4 years . What a life changing result for me.

I had been going through every treatment advised to resolve a lumbar issue prior to getting surgery. Met with doctor after doctor and couldn't commit. After one visit with this amazing doctor who took the time to listen and discuss my condition and my lack of options at this point, I immediately trusted her and we decided to go ahead with spinal fusion. She did an amazing job and I'm recovering quickly with no sciatic pain at all. She is a truly an honest, caring and amazingly talented surgeon.

I was very scared to have surgery. I put it off for more than a decade... I met with Dr. Love just in time to spare myself from permanent paralysis. She's the best! It would take me at least 3 or 4 second opinions to outweigh hers diagnosis.

Very patient doctor and doesn't look at surgery as a first option. Will give you honest opinion and take the time necessary to understand what the issue is and recommend options accordingly. Performed a successful surgery and I am virtually pain-free at 3 weeks post-op
