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...more
