    Patient Comments (1)
    in Concord, CA |
    Very professional and knowledgable and an all-around nice guy. I saw him in 2011 for a ruptured disc and he operated on my immediately the next day with a lumbar discectomy. Recovery was very fast and with minimal discomfort. Dr. Andrews never pressures and does not believe in excessive treatments or surgeries. He was very patient and straight-forward in explaining what was going on and what treatments and actions to take. My complete trust in him with my back issues was well-founded.
