Los Gatos, CA |
I went to Dr. Cluck because of other reviews and his video online, he seemed like a Doctor who actually cares about his patients. From my two visits, it seemed that he is more interested in overbooking patients (customers) to maximize profit.. I have been struggling with back pain for years, when describing my problems Dr. Cluck was condescending and not sympathetic, it felt like he was trying to get me out the door as quick as possible.

After 1-1/2 years of exhausting and seriously effecting sciatic nerve pain due to a synovial cyst on my L4, L5 facet joint, I was referred to Dr. Cluck whereby surgery was my next step to long term pain relief. The cyst had hardened and after my first consultation with Dr. Cluck, we had decided to move forward with his recommendation of minimally invasive micro decompression surgery. Well, I'm here to tell you, I am totally pain free and I owe it all to Dr. Cluck. I have a New Lease on life!!!
