Dr Petr (and his staff) are consummate professionals. Dr Petr is kind, extremely knowledgeable, detail oriented, thorough and compassionate. Dr Petr instilled confidence in explaining how he would alleviate my lumbar injury pain through surgical technique. And the surgery was a great success. I am so grateful to have found such a skilled and formidable surgeon.

Over 20 years of lower back and sciatica pain resolved by Dr. Petr and staff. Thorough consultation left no surprises, all questions answered. Procedure went better than expected, as explained weeks of some discomfort, always available for concerns and questions. The best decision was choosing Dr. Petr. Highly recommended, Thank you again.

What can I say about Dr. Petr and his staff without getting emotional? I can't. By the time I visited his office, I was in so much pain and had given up on finding any relief. He listened to my complaints and took the time to explain everything. I had to hug him after our first meeting. His staff is just as knowledgable and caring. Eva and Greg were there whenever I had a question and didn't even make me feel that I was a bother. After the surgery, he took the time to inform my daughter about the procedure and what I should expect during my recovery. My daughter, Nancy, asked why didn't I see Dr. Petr from the beginning of my plight? I wished I had. I wasted an entire year suffering through pain and sleepless nights. I am ever grateful to Dr. Petr, Eva, and Greg for their regular care. I will never go to another neurosurgeon. I genuinely feel like a new woman after the care I received from these beautiful people. All I can say, thank you, thank you, and thank you.

Dr. Petr is a wonderful doctor. I was in an auto accident and having problems walking. During my appointments he spent time going over what was wrong and how we could fix the problems. A few hours after surgery, my swelling was gone and I was able to walk without pain.

Two weeks ago I had unexpected surgery for cervical disc disorder with myelopathy C4-C7. Dr Petr and his nurse Practitioner Gregg Norris were beyond the best. They were very good at explaining the procedure and answering any questions from my family. I would absolutely recommend this practice to anyone who must have this type surgery, they are the best and I thank them very much for the patience shown and professionalism demonstrated.

I found Dr Petr and his staff to be very professional, friendly and accessible whenever I had a question. They were most helpful in expediting my surgery after circumstances out of our contro caused a long delay. Dr Petr explained the procedure, risks, benefits, etc in a very thorough and comprehensible manner. He performed a laminectomy in addition to implanting a Spinal Cord Stimulator. I felt immediate and considerable relief from my sciatic pain, attesting to Dr Petr's surgical abilities.

Appointments run on schedule; he talks in "laymen" terms; very thorough, takes as long as you need to answer and ask questions, doesn't rush you; tries to give you the best information regarding cost saving measures i.e. for testing, days to stay in the hospital, numerous followups following surgery - he really cares.

I first saw Dr. Petr on May 25 and had spine surgery May 31 in St. Augustine. He and his staff were amazing. PA Greg Norris was so helpful on follow ups. Sheila and Katie were also friendly and helpful. Dr. Petr was competent, personable and friendly and explained everything. I can’t stress how good he is! His skills are unsurpassed. I would highly recommend Dr. Petr!
