Patient Comments (1)
in South Dakota |
Dr. Sugar was my surgeon for a microdiscectomy. My lower back was injured twice - badly at work, chiropractors and PT. He listened, he ran other kinds of tests, met with me face to face, and gave me options. Immediately after the surgery feeling returned to my legs. Followed the post surgery instructions and haven’t looked back. They were all excellent, from nurses to anesthetists, but Dr. Sugar provided the best care. Do yourself a favor and see him!
