Sorry but this dr works for insurance company only . He has no reguards for the patient and is looking only to get paid . Get a second opinion from another office completely they all work together, they think we have no idea they all talk and decide what to do before you even get to the office ..

I was born with a denerative back. Dr. Loomis has been my Dr. for many years. He always gives me options when I am having back pain. He performed an L3/L4 fusion recently which took care of my pain. He talks with me and my wife with compassion and understanding. I would not want any other spine surgeon but him.

Dr. Loomis, did my surgery June 17,2015. I had back problems for years. Allways said never have surgery but the paid was so bad, couldn't take it any longer. It was one of the best decision I made. with Dr Loomis help. I thank God every day No pain. I wish I hadn't waited so long. i can do any thing i want to do now. I am 71 years old, still work part time.

Dr Loomis did an extensive spinal fusion on my back in early January 2007. I got MRSA from that surgery and had to have my back opened back up two more times to clean it out. Since then I have had nothing but horrible pain which has greatly impacted the quality of my life. I can barely walk. Just a short way and then I have to sit down. I've been to many doctors and tried everything. Unfortunately now the only way I can get relief is with Norco medication. Stay away from this doctor.

not a pleasant experience. The man was degrading and condescending, not only to me but to my wife as well. It was clear he was not going to do anything to help me recover from my injury.
