I would not refer my dog to him. My doctor sent for a referal, took them two weeks to call to set up an appointment. Once in, he sends me to the MRI trailer for 2 brain MRI's, get out they are closed, no follow up, waited all day on Friday leaving messages, only to find out he only works 2 days a week and then they close at 2PM on Fridays. No follow up, no appointments, jusy call and leave messages. SO I guess I do not have any brain tumors or issues, since no follow up or future appointments.

Six years ago, I was diagnosed with double herniated discs in my neck. The pain was unbearable. After getting nothing but waiting lists from other neurosurgery practices, Dr. Margraf's office said come in immediately. I met with the doctor who told me he could do the surgery the following day. He used a titanium plate and 6 screws. Problem solved. I can honestly say that 6 years later no further problems have happened in that area of my body. Excellent job Dr. Margraf!!

On March 7, 2014, my life changed. As a then 33 year old woman, I found myself facing an aneurysm that caught to take my life. Dr Margraf and the staff that works along side of him, were calm, poised to take action, professional, and were willing to spend any amount of time to answer questions and keep my family informed. I never intended to cross paths under these circumstances, but I'm sure glad I did. He was a true blessing. Trust him - you won't be sorry.
