About Me

Care Philosophy

As a Physician and Surgeon taking care of spinal disorders, I believe the patient should understand the natural history of their condition, which generally favors nonoperative care. The patient should have as much of my time as needed to make informed decisions regarding their care, whether nonoperative or operative. I truly believe quality of care trumps volume!

Dr. Fye seemed to be generally too concerned with patients needing surgery to express any kind of real concern for patients in need of non-surgical care like physical therapy or pain management.
