Dr. Onan operated on my husband 12 years ago with excellent results. Therefore when the pain in my legs - whether sitting or standing - became increasingly severe and my mobility was impacted I went to Dr. Onan. My age was 77 at the time and I questioned what result I could expect. Dr. Onan listened patiently to my concerns and issues; had Xrays and MRI done; explained at length possibilities and procedures. Pain is gone! Am walking 2.5 miles 3 times/week. I am thrilled with results!!!!

I was very impressed with Dr Onan, I knew what he was going to say about my lower back but he understood why I wasn't ready for surgery and was willing to go another direction until I'm ready.

I feel extremely lucky to have found Dr. Onan. Not only is he a kind and compassionate doctor but he took the time to find what was really wrong with my back and he fixed it surgically and after just a couple weeks I was feeling so much better after 6 years of pain and misdiagnosis by other doctors. I have recommended Dr. Onan to my friends and family.

Dr. Onan provided excellent care. He explained the procedure and what were the expected results. He also explained all options and possible results of each. The outcome of the procedure was outstanding.

Dr. Onan have been very attentive and compassionate from the day I arrived in his office with nerve issues in my arm and fingers going numb. We discussed, in detail, all my options and in August 2016 I had ACDF surgery performed by Dr. Onan. He has continued to meet all my recovery needs in a very timely and professional manner. I'm thankful I found this doctor and would recommend him to everyone!
Thank you Pam for taking the time to share your experience!
