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!

Dismissive. Uninterested. Didn't matter two other doctors found something. He didn't even want to see the reports from them. Dozens of tests ignored. He glanced at one and determined he knew it all and I left with no assistance. Wouldn't recommend to my worst enemy

I had been suffering for months with back and leg pain, unable to sleep in a prone position. After trying every known remedy, and many trips to a chiropractor, someone recommended Dr. Fye.
