Dr. Singer's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Singer "I was born and raised in the state of Kentucky and have been practicing in Bowling Green since 1991. My practice consists of the evaluation and treatment of the adult spine."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Singer "An individual with a spine condition is challenged on many levels.  The debilitating effects on one's life and its enjoyment can not be underestimated.  The problem is that the spine is an exceedingly complex system and routinely defies attempts to correct. Over the years I have discovered that the key to understanding the nature of a patient's spine condition and offering a suitable plan of action is to rely more heavily on the patient's symptoms and physical findings and and carefully match them with diagnostic imaging rather than trying to treat the imaging studies alone.  Sometimes that ugly MRI finding is simply not the problem at hand.  The judicious use of diagnostic injections and response to other treatments helps to define one's problem and formulate a plan.  This, however takes time and patience.  "

Dr. Singer is very kind and compassionate. He has great bed side manners and makes sure that you are comfortable. He went above and beyond for my care. I had back issues and didn't hesitate to come in on a Sunday to do surgery so that I could have relief. Thank you Dr.Singer!
