Dr. Geck and his staff are exceptional. They have been thorough, kind, professional, informative and friendly through my whole pre-surgery and scoliosis back surgery process. Every step of the way, including Dr. Geck's hospital staff have been exceptional, helpful and understanding. I cannot imagine any other doctor and his staff being so amazing from A to Z in the entire process. Thanks be to God for all these great people! You are in great hands if you choose this group.

Worst experience I EVER had with a doctor of ANY kind. Have scoliosis, asked what to do. OMG. Couldn't get away fast enough, will NEVER go back. I am an R.N. and older and was shocked to be treated like that. Still do not understand it. Has a problem of some kind.

Let me start with I WAS a patient of Dr. Gecks from 2013-2015. I am not or ever will be his patient again. I could write pages of the problems with Dr. Geck but I will stick with the major one. Due to a botched surgery I will live in pain the rest of my life. My surgery was for 2 rods to go from t2 to s1 with a 3rd rod on lumbar rt side. During surgery he failed to apply the bone grafting material, growth hormones etc. to my lumbar area. He told me I was fully fused. All 3 rods broke a yr later

before surgery, he'll seem like the best and most caring doctor, but after it's not the same. it's been a year and a half and i haven't seen him once. the checkups are always with the nurses, because he'll always get out of it. i still experience the same pain, and the nurses are always shocked on why i have pain yet never find a real way to solve it. there's not enough characters for the amount of complaints i have, but please don't waste your time or your child's, you'll regret it.

My son had an adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. After we talked to Dr. Geck, we felt very comfortable with him.He seemed to be very confident and competent. His answers and decision were very clear. My son had a surgery in Nov, 2015. Dr. Geck did awesome job. My son post-op was very uneventful. He has been doing well since surgery. We are very grateful and fortunate to have Dr. Geck as his ortopedist. Dr. Geck is the best of the best. His nurse Jacqueline is very helpful throughout the process.

I first met Dr. Geck in 2006 when I was contemplating spine surgery. Over the year and before I interviewed several physicians. He was recommended and I felt comfortable with him. I had scoliosis and he fused 13 vertebrae and inserted cages around the lumbar region. It made all the difference in my life. Recently, I had an infection and the rods and screws were removed. I received the same quality care from Dr. Geck. I recommend him to others with spinal issues and a friend is in surgery today
