I would not hesitate recommending Dr. Gornet he fused my lower back. He is very clear communicating the diagnosis and options for treatment. Once surgery was selected he was very good about explaining what to expect. His staff and office are all a pleasure to work with. I am grateful to Dr. Gornet for his excellent care.
don't do it, please keep looking.

Dr. Gornet did my surgery in 2002. I still have not had another surgery and am doing well. Not perfect, still have some pain, but nowhere what it was. This physician will explain things so a non-medical person can understand. He takes his time and is thorough. I have recommended many people to see him and will continue!

He is a good surgeon, but very abrupt and does not like to be questioned. He did not tell me my surgery was experimental, and I had to find out on my own. He is extremely expensive, and literally charges the price of a house for the surgery (no joke, it was almost $200K), not covered by insurance. If you do not want to participate in his clinical research, he doesn't want to do the surgery. The surgery was helpful, but be prepared to wait 3hrs+ to see him, and not get reminder calls.

Dr Gornet was a life saver, quite literally. I'm so glad I had him do my back surgery. Fusion and disk replacement, gave me my life back. It was also great to deal with a Dr that wasn't intimidated or bought off, by the insurance company. I would not hesitate to recommend this Dr!
