      If you want a doctor that lies and staff that is mostly incompetent - losing appointments, constantly changing appointment, missed Rx Refills and tons of headaches this is your spot! Dr. Hynes may have a lot of knowledge - but if he can't fix you - he will just keep operating and operating regardless of if it will really fix your issue!! There are a few gems in his Staff - that are amazing - but overall there is a ton of incompetencies, lack of communication, and untruths! Choose another doc!

      I had cervical spine surgery with stem cells from my hip several years ago. I highly recommend Dr. Hynes and his staff. These are caring exceptionally knowledgable doctors and staff. Thank God I went to the best. I am a teacher and an artist can do my work because I was operated on by the best of the best. If the time comes when I need further surgery I need look no further. Thank you all. Keep doing what you do. God bless these doctors and their caring and knowledgeable staff. C. Franek ??
