I met Dr. Belza under 'emergency' situation with several difficulties in my spine at the St. Charles Hospital in Bend, Oregon. Time was of utmost importance, my abilities to stand & walk had declined significantly in a very short period. (In the interest of space and time allotted here)..this man is a God send, I was lucky he was available, all went as he said it would, I'm recovering well and couldn't possibly ask for more. I would not hesitate to refer him to anyone with complete confidence!
