Terrible experience after lower back surgery. He tore the covering of the nerves in my low back. After a week of agony in the hospital he did another surgery on Me to fix his mistake. 2 years later I’m still seeing a pain doctor. He won’t return my phone calls. Big mistake going to him.

This warm funny caring gentleman took the very best care of my son years ago. He is a smart smart excellent surgeon who cares for his patients like the doctors 50 years ago used to. When you are in his care just try to relax and trust him. You can’t do better.
