Dr Stovall,performed my brain surgery 2013,I could not have asked for better care then what he provided me.Since my appt 6 weeks after surgery,I have not seen him,or spoke to him.I was informed an Mri was to be done annually.I have never had a return call to make an appt for MRI follow up,I have taken it upon myself and my med Dr to get me an appt for MRI,the past two years.Two weeks ago I called his office,left on hold each time for 10,9,11,mins with no results.Disappointed!

I am a 63 year old man who had lower back pain that radiated down the back of both legs and even had numbness of my buttocks occasionally. Dr. Stovall determined that I had spondylolisthesis with spinal stenosis at the L4 & L5 area and recommended a laminectomy. He performed the surgery on October 5, 2015 and I couldn't be happier. I went from taking lots of ibupropen each day to cope with the pain to being virtually pain free. I highly recommend Dr. Stovall!
