Patient Comments (6)

Dr. Jeffords took a sound course of action for my husband, which ended in disc fusion surgery. He thoroughly explained everything, answered questions in detail but without overcomplication, his calm confidence was great comfort to my husband. We would highly recommend Dr. Jeffords and his team.
