Dr Gullick performed cervical disc arthroplasty on me. He listens and both he and his staff are polite and helpful. Recovery has gone well. No more epidural spinal injections or nerve pain thanks to Dr Gullick!

I have had 2 spinal fusions performed by Dr. Gullick with good success. I much appreciated his conservative approach, only operating when all other options had been exhausted. He is one of the only surgeons I have seen that actually LISTEN to patients. I wholeheartedly recommend.
