I highly recommend Dr Nunley for your spinal condition. Extremely knowledgeable and caring for his patient. Strongly believes in alternative care but will not put patient through any treatment that he feels ( or knows) will only delay the inevitable

Dr. Nunley didn't explain what to expect after surgery or if complications happen efficiently. He advised this is a 3 day recovery. My dad has been in and out hospitals and the Spine institute almost 10 times asking for help since the surgery. At visits, his NP didn't want to take the bandage off to look and never explain what was going on. Now 42 days later Dr. Nunley is doing another surgery because an infection inside is so bad it's eating his bone, possibly causing issues later.

He is a surgeon that has you think it through and talks with you before surgery . He wants you to be confident in your decision.He is not out to get your money . There is no relation with our name .

He and his staff are always concerned, courteous, efficient, thorough. Professional and extremely Knowledgeable. The office has state of the art equipment. Staff works together well. Appointments are almost always on time with minimal wait time. Dr. Nunley not only stays current on procedures, but also develops and teaches procedures to doctors all over the world. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Nunley or his assistants, Mike and Chris to anyone. I also recommend the Specialist Hospital.
