Dr. Healy is a very talented & knowledgeable surgeon. If you are looking for a warm fuzzy doctor, he's NOT for you. He's all business, straight forward and doesn't spend much time with his patients. He will answer questions if you ask, but does so in a very concise manner.

I was referred to Dr. Healy for back and leg pain. After reviewing the MRI of my back, he wanted more thorough information before giving me a diagnosis. He ordered an MRI of my neck where he found the problem. I am scheduled for a posterior cervical laminectomy. I be honest, I couldn't have gotten through the anxious decision of surgery without the compassion and patience of Shelly and the rest of Dr. Healy's staff. Update to follow after surgery!

I had a cervical laminectomy in 2011 and was under the excellent care of Dr. Healey and his team. Through his tender care I was able to achieve a higher quality of life and return to fully participating in family time with my daughter and grandchildren, and full fill my duties as a nurse. I was fearful of this procedure, he took the time to talk to me and guide me through each step. An excellent surgeon with awesome bedside manner!

Dr Healy is the greatest. I was his patient in 2002. He did a Lumbar Micro Laminectomy on L4-L5. I never had a problem or pain after my 6 week recovery. I'm having other issues and I hope to see him soon for his expertise of how is can help me now. If you need help, he is the person to call for spinal problems.

I have had to have multiple cervical and lumbar surgeries. I made the mistake of seeing an inferior neurosurgeon; who performed 5 of them. After being told by him that "I'd never be any better than I was then," I sought a second opinion by Dr. Healy. After reviewing my MRI, he said that he could "fix me." And that he did! His staff was most helpful, and his surgery scheduler, Shelly B. has always gone above and beyond when it came to my surgeries. I would recommend Dr. Healy and his group.

He performed an L5 over S1 back fusion on my 20 year old daughter.He nicked her spinal cord and sent her home from hospital with a CSF leak. Called him the following day and he told me to have her lay flat all weekend and come in the office on Monday. Took her on Monday (over an hour) and he wasn't in. His PA saw her and verified the leak - told her come back next day. He saw her next day and set her up for surgery the following day. A week with a CSF leak. Scheduler is also not nice.

Dr. Healy was my surgeon quite some time ago for a C5-6 discectomy with bone graft. The surgery was successful however, it resulted in complications. Dr. Healy treated me horribly accusing me of dislodging the graft. My family MD sent me for numerous tests that found vocal cord paralysis, pupil paralysis diagnosed as Horner Syndrome from over retracting during surgery. Traumatic experience with Dr. Would Not recommend.

Dr. Healy and his staff are absolutely wonderful!!!! I was hesitant to have back surgery at first. Dr.Healy took the time and explained every detail of the surgery after doing so I felt more confident about it. Deb the nurse is also wonderful!!! She answered all of my questions after surgery!! I highly recommend Dr. Healy and his staff!!!

I recommend Dr. Healy to everyone I know who needs Spinal or neck surgery. I had an acute back injury. He explained everything about the injury and the surgery, answering my questions before I asked. The next working day with surgery, he took me from a pain level of 10+ to 5 weeks later, a back that, after recovery, feels better than it has in years. I was back at work in 6 weeks later. Thank you, Dr. Healy for giving me my life back.
