      I found Dr. Gaufin to be very cautious and sensitive to my problem. He even asked me to talk to my husband and pray about it before I decided to go ahead with the surgery. He visited me in the hospital every day and when there was a problem, he took care of it right away. I also found his doctor's assistant to be very caring and helpful. I would not go to another doctor if I needed another back surgery. He is the best!!!!
