What People Say About Dr. Robert Kazan, MD
I had to get an emergency microdiscectomy (L5S1) with Dr Kazan. He’s an amazing surgeon and very knowledgeable. I was back up and better than ever afterwards. I ride horses for a living (jumpers) so my back takes a beating. Still going strong 1.5 Years later!
