    On March 3rd, Dr. York performed Orthopedic Spine Surgery on me. I had problems (and pain) for several years and debilitating pain for the past 4 months. Dr. York found the source of the problem that apparently no one else found. Since my surgery, I have minimal pain and am doing things physically, that I haven't been able to do for a while. The surgery was done at the V.A. Hospital in Denver and the care that I received before and after that day was second to none. That's one of the many things that make me so proud and special, to be a veteran.

    Both Dr. York and his assistant were very interested and attentive to how I was progressing. He updated the x rays and showed them to us. He explained what he had done and answered all our questions. All ans all, I think he is an awesome doctor who is very concerned about me as his patient.

    Dr York is an exceptional spine doctor with an excellent bedside manner. He got me through all three of my challenging spine surgeries utilizing exceptional knowledge and compassion for me as a patient. In my opinion, he is one of the great spine specialists in the Denver area.

    WOW is all I can say. I would highly recommend Dr York if you have spine problems. I have been dealing with neck issues for years, numbness, tingling, pain down my arms and also shoulders. He went in and did the surgery and instant relief. I was on Morphine and Oxycontin for 28 years. I am off all pain meds, along with other meds I dropped also since I didn't need them anymore from this Amazing surgery. Yes it was pretty invasive but to get off all them pills and no more pain (which was my goal) I will have a more productive life, and enjoy my Grand-kids more. Thank You, Thank You again Dr York.

    Dr. York is competent, diligent, compassionate and an excellent surgeon. When surgery became inevitable Dr. York took the time to explain exactly what would be done to me and what to expect. No surprises. More importantly he resolved a long existing problem.

    I was very impressed with physician assistant Hera and Dr York's assessment of my back problems. Both were very thorough and advised me of things that had not been explained completely to me by other physicians. Really appreciated the honest approach of fusion vs Decompressiona/Microdiscectomy
