Although Dr. Song came highly recommended, my experience with him was pretty bad. He seems competent in performing surgery, but the pre- and post-surgical experience was totally unprofessional. Post surgery, his attitude was condescending and rude. His staff lied to me several times, and even cancelled the surgery I'd waited 4 months for! I was told that was because I said I didn't want the surgery...something I never said!! So the surgery had to be rescheduled. I'll never go back to him.

Dr. Song is the best. I am finally without pain and loving life again.

I came to Dr. Song in a sad state. My lower back had been giving me trouble for some time and I had reached a point where I needed help. Sciatica down my legs, excruciating pain in my left hip and muscle spasms that brought me to my knees. I had the surgery 13 weeks ago and it has resulted in a complete cure of pain, sciatica, and spasms that had so debilitated me. I am daily regaining more of my strength and mobility. Dr. Song and his staff were thoughtful, caring, and professional.

Didn't complete the operation. When evidence was presented by 3 other surgeons that it needed to be redone he used the insurance company as a cover for not wanting to fix his mistakes. He would only file the request for coverage asking to do 2 levels of her lower back. Knowing that it would not be covered, multiple level surgery is only approved if the patient has scoliosis. When asked to please do one level at a time he refused and the refused to care for my wife anymore.

I had a degenerating discs and a cyst in my spine. The pain in my leg was bad. I couldn't do normal household activities. Dr. Song looked at my MRI and thought I should have surgery soon, which I did. He removed the cyst intact and put in screws and plates. My recovery has been complete, the pain is gone and I do all the things I used to do. I told him he gave my life back to me and I believe that. I think of him almost every day and thank god he sent Dr. Song to our area when he did.

I can get back to living thanks to Dr. Song. I am finally without pain for the first time in years. He is the best and worth the wait.
