I really like Dr. Bishop, his obvious knowledge of his trade makes you feel instantly in the right hands. I'm a 33 year old woman who was honestly at the point that I thought spinal surgery was my only option for relief (I wasn't interested in the time or money injections and PT would require) and he took care in answering all my questions thus dissuading me. He suggested I try yoga, so I bought some DVD's and some accessories and I couldn't be feeing better!

I grant you, Dr. Bishop, did take the time to explain the MRI, but My and my family concern was he didn't take the time to come out after surgery and explain what took so long and what else he had to do during surgery. If I hadn't seen him in the hall way after coming from the bathroom with a nurse, then I wouldn't have seen him then. He nor his staff has never called to see how I was doing, nor a follow up visit. I now have other problems that has come up , and I certainly won't recommend

Dr. Bishop is amazing. Totally helped me out in a time of desperation. Saw 2 ortho docs before him, got nowhere. I don't know where the negative reviews come from because I have witnessed nothing but positive things from him. His assistant Beth who helps him in the surgeries and office is really great. She explains everything to my level and is always so nice and pleasant just like he is. They are a great team!! All good things to say about Dr. Bishop and Beth!!!!! Thank you.

Dr. Bishop is a very caring and patient friendly doctor who takes the time to explain the issue that has been found and what needs to be done. I have been a patient of Dr. Bishop for some time now and I would truly recommend him to family, friends and everyone else, and his staff is incredible people.

Dr. Bishop did not listen. When we asked a question he acted as though we were not to question him. My husband had an mri done and I do not believe Dr. Bishop even looked at it. When asked about bulging disc he informed us everyone has those. My husband was talking to him and he got up and walked out of the room. It took a month for them to finally call about injections and at that time we had already seen another doctor and had an injection scheduled.
