AUGUSTA, GA |
He did my 2 level fusion for l4-l5 and l5-s1 back on 8/2010. Going on 7 years later and I'm still doing great! Back to playing softball, a little basketball and mud runs. I was 28yo when I required the surgery due to ruptured discs and during the surgery was found to have a disc that didn't fuse right at birth. I played college basketball so have been doing sports my whole life. I'm now 35yo and the only residual effects I have are some stiffness in my back and slight numbness to my L foot.

Horrible

I think I would have gotten better treatment at a vet! It was the worst experience of my entire life. He has done SIX surgeries on me in 11 months and each time took more discs out of my back! I am now in 10/10 pain constantly and can not move at all! I am completely bedridden. He allowed spinal fluid to leak from my back for three weeks. When I aske him why this was happening to me his reply was, If you didn't have bad luck you'd have no luck at all!
in North Augusta, SC |
He did an anterior cervical spinal fusion of c3-c7. He was amazingly. It has been 10 years now and I have not had any problems. My girlfriend had the procedure done by someone else, and has had to have 2 more surgeries. So glad that I found this man.
in Vidor, Texas |
I have never felt so mistreated in NY life. The most unprofessional office and doctor I have ever visited.
