June 2018 surgery. Pain level was a 9 before his surgery. Year later still at a level zero. Before surgery, life wasn’t worth living because of back pain. Now pain is still gone because of Dr. Aaronson

Dr. Aaronson performed spinal surgery on me in early 2018. I was experiencing constant pain in my upper legs. He told me it could take up to a year or longer to feel relief. In June 2019 - 18 months after the surgery - my pain abated and I am now pain free! I so appreciate Dr. Aaronson’s expertise. He has given me a pain free life!

I saw Dr. Aaronson in 2014 after a very large tumor was discovered in my spinal canal. I researched myself best doctors for this surgery and came across him. I knew from my first appointment that this was the doctor I wanted. He is so knowledgeable and very professional, yet also very caring. My surgery was a very difficult one and I have no doubt he remembers it well as it was around ten hours long and a difficult tumor to completely remove. I had a very difficult recovery but I’m convinced Dr. Aaronson was the absolutely best doctor to help me. He’s still my favorite doctor out of the many I have dealt with. I would not hesitate to use him again should I need another tumor removed. Other doctors could learn a lot from him as far as treating patients with respect and kindness. Highly recommend!

The front reception area was nice and the staff were very friendly to me. I have only saw Dr. Aaronson 2 times for my neck issues. He is not very personable or chatty, but he is very skilled and comes highly recommended. He does recommend other treatments before surgery and I appreciate that. He is very knowledgeable and seems very professional, which is the most important when it comes down to it.

I had to go in Dr. Aaronson office on 3-12-2018 because I had fallen hard and wanted to make sure I did not damage my back where he done my back surgery. I did not seen the Doctor but a nurse. I want to let you know everyone of his workers had a big smile on their faces. Makes you feel better when you see smiling faces.Thanks to all of you for making me feel good. Mary Price

Very knowledgeable, has a great reputation from other patients. He is very polite and a man of few words. Only small criticism is the he does seem to be "on to the next patient" pretty quickly. Front desk staff at Howell Allen Clinic are not very "patient oriented". To be fair, they are not rude or unkind, but clearly not compassionate or courteous to patients in the waiting area.

I first saw Dr. Aaronson 3 years ago. He had me try pain management first. Eventually I had to have surgery. I knew I wanted Dr. Aaronson to perform the surgery. It was extensive. I am so happy to have found him. I feel he was God sent. My wife an I think he is a wonder caring doctor. We would certainly recommend him. He takes time to it listen to you. Thank you Dr. Aaronson an your staff. You all are the best.

Highly qualified given his years of experience. Excellent listener, provides the rationale for his recommendations. Engages with you on a personal level and is concerned if your wait was too long or there were any system issues with his office. Was voted 'Most Compassionate Physician" by Vanderbilt nurses and that has also been our experience with him. He rearranged his entire surgery schedule to attend to my husband who was in pain with a herniated disc. He is a nurses doctor..really great guy.

After consulting with 2 other neurosurgeons during which I felt like a cattle call for patients that need spinal surgery, I came away feeling as though Dr. Aaronson listened, explained and wants to provide the best, most appropriate care for my situation. I would recommend Dr. Parkinson without hesitation to anyone. Ditto for his staff. A very knowledgeable and helpful physician AND staff. The best of the best.

About Me

I strive to provide excellent and compassionate care that is tailored towards specific patients and their unique conditions. Where possible I employ non-surgical management options and only recommend surgery when absolutely necessary.
