Dr. McDonough did a wonderful job on my complex back surgery! He is an amazing surgeon and I would definitely recommend him to anyone considering neck or back surgery. He made me feel comfortable and now I am pain free! I only wish I would have done this surgery years ago.

Dr McDonough and his staff are very professional, friendly and have answered all my questions and addressed all my concerns that I have had. I had cervical fusion c3-c7 and a laminectomy performed and considering how complicated my situation had become I am totally satisfied with the outcome. My only complaint is not being prescribed strong enough pain medicine when I was discharged from the hospital, Luckily, my PCP helped me out.

Dr. McDonough did neck surgery. He was very informative when explaining the procedure. I was having severe pain and could not move my arms. Surgery went great. And continue to have great results.

Terrible experience. Dr Only did half of what he needed to do for reasons that me and my new surgeon can't explain. He did 2 surgeries on me and i got worse each time. When my pain got worse, he did nothing but say "sorry your in pain, ill see you back in 2 months." He sent me home the day that i had the second surgery without pain medication because, and i quote, "i left my prescription pad at the office, just go home see how you do tonight and call me tomorrow if you are still in pain."
