Dr. Stovall performed a triple fusion on my neck at the end of 2018. I was very happy with his approach to my issue and the way he answered my questions ahead of the procedure. The surgery went very well and I have made a full recovery. I would recommend him unreservedly to others.

My internal medicine doctor referred me to Dr. Stovall. And, I very pleased. My operation went perfectly (fusion, implants, spinal stenosis problem). I would recommend him in a heartbeat. If I ever need another procedure, I will go back to Dr. Stovall.
