Excellent with patients. Takes the time to explain everything so that you can understand everything about your problem. Very patient and friendly. Extremely knowledgeable and doesn't rush to operate - only if necessary. He offers alternatives.

Amazing doctor, wouldn't trust anyone else with spinal surgery. Great bedside manner, will take as much time as you need with explaining your condition. Speaks to you in real terms, not medical terminology.
