I will be forever grateful to Dr. Detwiler for saving my life in 2015. There are not enough words to describe his patience and understanding. If there were a higher rating than 5 he would get a 100.

I would never recommend this quack/hack and pathological liar to operate on anything. He should lose his licence.

I had sever stenosis of L2, L3 and L4. Dr. Detwiler was upfront with me about the risks of surgery. He performed a laminectomy. It corrected the problem. 6 weeks out I am pain free and have resumed my normal life. I highly recommend Dr. Detwiler.
