My first appt for surgery Spinal fusion was last week . Dr Held was very professional in answer all of my questions but gave me the chance to think about it and chance to come back to answer more questions I might have as I will be back later the following week . I am almost beating the 50 yr old female that is very active kiteboarder not ready to give up on my passion in the water just yet . He reassured me that I could return to my love of water sports . I'll be giving you an update in months to come on my surgery and recovery . I must say I feel the staff and dr Held are very caring people just in my first visit .

I cannot thank Drs. Held & Dalrymple enough. Their staff is the best. All of my questions were answered with patience and kindness. When I began my journey with them, I could barely walk. Believe it or not, I actually skipped down the hallway to their office for my last follow up. I am so blessed that I was referred to them. Their care coordinators are angels and were able to handle insurance and scheduling with ease. Even in the midst of a hurricane and approaching holiday season, everything fell right into place. A hundred stars and tons of gratitude to everyone that helped me through the most difficult year in my entire life. If you have been referred or need to be, rest assured that you will be in good hands and will receive the best of care.

He is a good listener, takes time to review test results with you. ( X-RAYS, MRI). He also demonstrates where the problem is etc. Will recommend or agree to therapy if you choose and ultimately will perform surgery if necessary .

I was very leery of back surgeries after hearing tons of horror stories. However a friend of a friend recommended Dr Held and after having the surgery I couldn't be more satisfied. I was up and walking within 30 minutes of waking up. First time I could stand up straight in seven months do to two car wrecks in 3 weeks. He has given me back my mobility and allowed me to continue pursuing my career!!! I highly recommend D Mark Held!!!!
