Amarillo, TX |
Dr. LaGrone preformed fusion surgery on my lower spine back in 2014. The surgery was a success and I have very little, if any, back pain now. Dr. LaGrone and Kelly, his P.A. and surgical assistant were very caring and professional through the whole procedure. The decision to have back surgery is not an a easy one for anyone, and requires a whole lot of trust in the surgeon that does the surgery. I am glad that I decided to place my trust in Dr. LaGrone to preform my surgery !

Dr. LaGrone and his team are great. They are a caring, highly professional group of specialists. Dr. LaGrone cares about his patients and is an excellent surgeon.
Would not consider anything I said as valid, talked to dr several times about how I didn't agree with procedure to fix issue.Went ahead and did the procedure, told my wife he would come talk to her in waiting roomafter SPINE SURGERY.never did. Felt exactly the same after procedure. was told to wait 3 weeks and if it still hurt we had problems. 6 weeks later, 2 meetings (over hour wait every visit) 2 MRI's and no validation for what I am saying, with the same pain, was called and said I was fine.

Zero bedside manner and no business whatsoever taking on children as patients. I highly recommend taking your child to a bigger city if they need to see an orthopedic doctor, especially for scoliosis. Most of the staff has been cranky and rude EVERY.SINGLE.INTERACTION. we have had with them. My number one priority is my child's health needs and today on the phone with this joke of an office I was told flat out that I do not get to make any decisions regarding my child's treatment. WRONG!
