Forget this Doctor unless you want to talk backpacking ! I had a long wait, had to stay overnight in Hotel as he openly works until noon. His office is all the way at the back, so if you have real pain you better have a wheel chair. I spent a whole day before getting there making sure the forms were exact and he obviously had not looked at them. At end he told me it was something that could be operated on, but since I am on oxygen I would have to find a DR in Denver. Told me "LIVE WITH IT"

My experience was horrible. Not only did they not cater to my needs as a patient, the whole staff seemed to not care about anything concerning rehabilitation. Not being able to contact your own doctor post operation and having to go to the ER because he nor his staff were available really reflects on what they truly care about. I woke up with a busted lip after being operated on and was told nothing. I am on the verge of losing my job just because I can't get a doctors release for two weeks.
Dr. Davis is a neurosurgeon and very good at what he does,but don't expect a lot of good bedside manner with him. He's very focused with the problem at hand and gets it fixed. I guess the only thing that he is lacking is personal relation skills. A friend tells me most neurosurgeons are like this...just focused on fixing the problem which he did in my case. A very good doctor/surgeon in his field in my humble opinion. Just don't expect a lot of personality coming from him.

Dr. Davis immediately diagnosed my issue, explained the plan to correct my spine issue and spent time showing me the options. The ONLY issue is that his schedule is so overbooked that you can wait hours to see him for follow-up. As a surgeon there is not a lot of feel good as he is a problem solver which was fine with me. He took time but as with most surgeons I've known their personality is to find the problem, fix and move on.
