Patient Comments (6)
in Winnsboro, TX |
I'm a 66 year old male. Through my 40's and 50's I had been an accomplished cyclist, backpacker and mountain climber until, over time, lower back pain and leg, foot numbness made those activities impossible. Dr. Renfro did spinal fusion (L4-L5) on my back 5 years ago in 2012. Since surgery, I have averaged over 3000 miles per year cycling, have backpacked across Glacier National Park, the Sierra Nevada mountain range and recently road my bike up Mt. Evans, CO to 14,130 elevation. He's the best!
in Mineola , TX |
Dr Renfro was very understanding and listened to me and answered my questions. He showed me the MRI's and compared them to the prior years.
in Tyler, Texas |
Patient and kind. Competent and thorough. Excellent bedside manner.
in Lufkin, TX |
He listened and answered my questions. He gave me the time I needed without feeling rushed or pressured. He showed genuine interest and compassion.
in Hawkins, TX |
Showed genuine interest; looked me straight in the eye, listened to lengthy history of prior condition; moved through relevant steps to address needs of corrective surgery. Nice demeanor. Never seemed rushed or distracted.
in Flint, TX |
Dr. Renfro was very thorough, seem to care and answered all my questions. I would definitely use him, again if needed.
