He was absolutely amazing, my back was so messed up and I'm only 24, and he put it back to perfection with only two incisions. He was so kind and helpful with all my question, and was extremely kind after my surgery. 10 out of 10 would recommend.

Professional and thorough !
Ann Arbor, MI |
Does not welcome input from his patients unless it's to agree with his recommendations. Evaluation included inaccurate information that then supported the need for surgery. Overemphasizes actual risk. Turned all care over to his staff and mid-level providers after surgery. Did not do physical exam or assessment of his own beyond visual contact of less than 2 minutes. Scheduled only one post-op visit within the 90 dayglobal package covered by insurance.
