Zero stars....would never ever recommend this doctor. Worse physician!!!!

Dr. Verdilin literally gave me back my life. I had ruptured L4 & L5. I had back surgery 12 years ago. I was in so much pain I had no quality of life. Then my new insurance recommended him and he told me about this newer stimulator he had to implant and was helpful and improved the pain. I was willing to give anything a try. I had the surgery and within 2 days was completely out of pain. After 12 years I am back to work and working out. Words can't express my gratitude to him.

My experience at this office was really refreshing. Sam, made sure I was set up before walking back. Naomi is friendly and thorough while asking questions. PA,Neenah, helped me with every one of my issues and explained why I was having pain. Rebecca, is fantastic up front and really makes me feel cared for beyond just being a patient. Dr V went out of his way to make sure my transfer to a military clinic was smooth. Just such a great experience. Thank you!!

I am horrified by the treatment I saw of the doctor towards his staff. While he seemed kind to me, the behavior and words I saw directed at his staff were truly unbelievable. He was essentially screaming and berating his staff while I was waiting in the exam room (with the door OPEN, no less). It was all because of my legitimate complaint regarding a referral that wasn't submitted in a timely manner and the lack of returned phone calls. I appreciate him addressing it, but not like THIS! Amazed.

He is very abrupt but he knows what he's doing. His staff is another story... they run around like chickens with their heads cut off and are oftentimes very rude.
