I recently had a lumbar spine fusion done by Dr. Jensen. He patiently answered all my questions about the surgery. He and his staff are very professional and I was pleased with the way I was treated there. He seemed very knowledgeable about the procedure and had state of the art equipment at FMH. I would recommend Dr. Jensen to anyone.

Thank you Dr Jensen and staff!
