The entire experience was professional and informative enough for me to make decisions needed prior to my surgery. His staff were/are incredible. I never waiting for an scheduled appointment, very efficient office. I’m 5 weeks post surgery but ALL original issues are gone. I just need to be a good patient and listen and do as told for the fusion and surgery sights to heal. BTW a shoutout to Nurse Deb. See you in August.

Amazing Doctor and Staff!! I was super nervous going into surgery being that I had never had surgery before, but they were very comforting and informative! I’m very happy with the surgery outcome and would highly recommend them to others! Ashlyn was very helpful at getting everything scheduled and making sure the appointments went smoothly! The whole office was amazing all the way around!!

My neurosurgeon is Dr Noah Converse. I came to his office with bulging discs and in awful pain. The entire staff was incredibly sympathetic and wonderful to me . Dr Converse was compassionate, knowledgeable and professional and put me at ease immediately despite my terrible pain. within days all of my pre-surgery test were done and my next consult appt with Dr Converse was made. His staff is incredible, his nurse Debbie is amazing. There is only one NeuroSurgeon for me and that is Dr Converse.

I found Dr. Converse takes the time to listen to his patients. He explains the entire procedure as well as showing you and explaining the materials that will be used for your surgery. He also take time to answer any questions that you might have, Prior to surgery I was surrounded by pain in the neck and radiating to the shoulder. After surgery it is marvelous to be pain free. I highly recommend Dr. Converse

Dr. Converse is very thorough and clearly has his patient's best interests in mind. He is a surgeon that uses a computer screen for patient viewing of their MRI, CT, and/or XRAY films to show details of what is going on in and around the areas causing problems. He clearly explains what can be expected after surgery long term realistically. He does not try to "sell" surgical option as a first choice when other options or waiting might be better for awhile longer.

He was originally consulted to my husband, but then because it wasn't as serious they withdrew the consult. Dr. Converse still took the time to come and discuss with my husband the findings and was very professional. We appreciated him very much!

I am so thankful for Dr Noah converse on helping me get my life back and I suggest anyone who is having severe back problems or sciatic issues go see a back surgeon. I know it’s scary but nowadays with today’s technology the risks are low.

It would be unfair of me to say that Dr. Converse is one of the finest physicians to be found (he is that)...without mentioning his support staff. From the first rate reception staff, an outstanding RN named Debbie, and nurse Ashlyn... all are superb and congenial in their jobs. Also, kudos to a lady doctor from Sacred Heart who"hooked me up" during the surgery, the anesthesiologist and surgical crew. THANK YOU ALL, and God bless each and every one of you!

On 13 March 2018 Dr. Noah Converse performed and L4-5 lumbar laminectomy and synovial cystectomy to remedy the following pain: #8 pain level when rolling from side to side in bed and when getting out of bed, #7 pain level when loading and unloading motor home, #6 pain level when doing bench presses, #3 pain level in the butt and down the back of my legs whenever standing, and left leg going numb when standing or walking for more than 15 minutes. Dr. Noah Converse's surgery got rid of all these

After my surgery I feel that I am progressing well. Dr. Converse says, I'm where I ought to be. We discussed excercise, and I have a follow up appointment in a couple of months. I feel great.

I recently went to Dr. Converse after symptoms returned from a former back surgery. Dr. Converse's staff was prompt with all paperwork and the appointment. I did not have to wait more than a few minutes for anything. Dr. Converse himself was attentive, patient and LISTENED to everything I had to say before giving me all of my options. I will need a surgery but I am confident I will get long-lasting relief from the surgery he will be performing. I would definitely recommend this doctor.
