Dr Philips is an incredible Doctor!!?? I would highly recommend him for neck surgery. I had my first surgery through Drs on Cape Cod...biggest mistake! They had no bedside manners, didn't listen to you or care about what you had to say. I fell 4 months after my surgery with them and told me I was fine! I was not! Dr Philips listens, explains everything and took care of me! My surgery was a success, and follow up with Dr Riveria's pain clinic! I couldn't be more happy. I'm in great hands now!!??
