Patient Comments (22)

Dr. Bolt took extra time to explain what he saw in the MRI and seats already done. He found something a previous orthopedic didn't see or didn't want to see since he did the original surgery. We are in a wait and see attitude but if things change I'll be going back to see Dr. Bolt.

As a healthcare professional, you know I did my homework. I appreciate his conservative approach but eventually reached a point where surgery was the only viable option for pain relief. Knew he couldn't fix all the cervical issues, but pain relief was instant. Back at work 1 week after a 2 level...more
