Dr. Gore and his care team, Dayna, have been providing excellent care for me to diagnose chronic pain that I’ve been experiencing in my neck. They have rushed procedures for me including X-rays, MRI, CT Scan and a pain injection. Dr. Gore and Dayna also spent a lot of time to clearly explain my X-rays and scans and are consulting with the other surgeons in the practice to come up with the best solution for me. I highly recommend this practice if you have any problems with your spine. They are the best!

What an amazing surgeon. He saw my MRI & his PA called to get me in sooner. A few days later and after a 6 hr surgery , I’m forever grateful for a lack of pain but more so my knees are not buckling. I would highly recommend Dr Gore without any reservations.

Poor follow up with patient post surgery, average waiting time ~45 minutes. Appointment was "accidentally" cancelled by his assistant without notifying patient. The same assistant also made MULTIPLE mistakes for drugs prescriptions when discharged from hospital. Labs & MRI orders never placed properly in system per discussion, patient had to call the office each time to remind them do their jobs properly. Slow comments/feedback on test results.

I had superior canal dehiscence surgery twice by Dr. Gore. Brilliant man, great personality. I can not say enough good things about him and his office. After my first surgery he came in and called me a rock star lol for some reason it was the funniest thing I had ever heard.

Multiple MRI's, Gore told me if condition worsens I should have surgery Back worsened to the point that both legs collapsed & I blew my knee requiring major surgery, yet Gore still said we shouldn't do back surgery? Last appt. I sat in a wheelchair for 74 minutes past my appt. time, only to have him speak with me for 4 minutes. I then had to wait a hour in pain, for transport to make its way back to me A "polite" complaint got me threatened to be dropped as patient by office mgmt F Grade
