Dr. Paul treats you like a person with care and compassion. Excellent quality work, considering all dr. Paul has done he not only left me impressed but everyone of my support team. I can't say anything negative about other Neuro surgeons but I can't enough positive things about Dr. Paul. Do your self favor if your in need of surgery and let Dr. Paul make things right, you won't be disappointed.

Where do I being? Dr. Paul is, hand down, a phenomenal neurosurgeon. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional. He really cares about his patient's health and well-being and quality of life. He will not recommend a procedure unless he finds it medically necessary. My surgery was extremely successful and I was able to return to work right away. You will not regret seeing Dr. Paul and having him as your neurosurgeon. The office staff is great as well!! Super friendly all around.

Both my wife and I had major back surgeries with Dr. Paul, along with his highly skilled hands, he is also gifted with a kind heart. There are many skilled surgeons out there, but not all of them are as compassionate as Dr. Paul and his staff. Dr. Paul is NOT part of a Doctors Group that passes patients around so they all make a buck off of you with no resolution in site. Dr Paul saw my wife and in 2 weeks surgery was done. Go see Dr. Paul first or last, but go see him!

My husband went in for spinal surgery and Dr Pauls extraordinary team located a more dire problem that required immediate attention and additional surgery. It was because of this expertise that my husband is with me today. The personal care and attention that Dr Paul gave was only matched by his professionalism. It is rare these days in a medical clinic to have experienced such genuine invested care. I cannot express my gratitude more fully and would not hesitate endorsing Dr. Michael Paul

I was initially shocked to find out that after having a successful Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion and Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion, performed by Dr. Paul, that I would find myself in the Operating Room again. But the pain and loss of function convinced me to go back to The O. R. to have the Impinged nerve in my neck released by Dr. Paul with a Cervical Foraminotomy. I had a second successful surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Paul. He is very skilled and compassionate.

Dr Paul has done wo back surgeris and cervical. He listens very well since I am never compliant in knows what's wrong every time I walk in there. I popped a screw in my back from. Not listening to him. He did not get mad just fixed the problem. I was in ER not feeling good with the flu found out it was something else he actually answered his phone on a Sunday at 9:30 p.m. what other doctors can you say will do that. He and his staff are very caring

Went to see him with server back pain, I asked him if an infection could cause the pain as I was breaking out in sweat and running a fever. He actually accused me of pain med shopping. Long story short, I was finally diagnosed with osteomyoltis. The infection infected my heart valves aeorta and mitro which had to be replaced. If he had followed protocol rather than profiling me l might not have had to under go open heart surgery to save my life. So beware of his inabilities to listen
