I sent a patient to Dr. Margraf for consultation for lumbar surgery. Dr. Margraf, whom I had spoken highly of, sent his PA into the clinic room alone, and this young gentleman told my patient his low back was perfect, good space, good curvature, and that he wished his low back looked like his. He did not show him the MRI films, but sent a steroid prescription for "inflammation."

I highly recommend Dr. Margraf. My appointment was arranged in a timely, proficient manner by his staff including the scheduling of a MRI prior to the appointment. I was scheduled for a spinal fusion within days based on an excellent explanation of the need for the procedure. The surgery has been a complete success and I am on the road to recovery.

I had a four level fusion in April 2016 by another surgeon which was a total failure my pain was worst and after 2 years of chronic uncontrollable pain I was sent to Dr Margraf by my pain management Dr... two weeks later I had a surgery that included my surgery from 2016 being redone and four levels above!! I went from not being able to control my left leg to completely picking it up as I was waking from recovery... I feel like Dr Margraf gave me my life back two weeks after the surgery and I can walk with no dragging my left leg I can also pick it up 3 foot laying flat down!! I am a 60 year old female and I feel like my life just done a 360 turn around I have quality to life now and I do not have that deep down excruciating pain and that I am very grateful to Dr Margraf he is amazing and I thank God I was referred to him! I do have pain now but it’s the normal after surgery pain .. Thanks again Dr Margraf and your staff you guys are wonderful ??

DR Margraf performed back surgery on me this past Oct. I was turned down and not given much hope by others because of some complications. DR Margraf from day 1 had hope. Surgery was a success. His staff are just as amazing! I won't trust anyone else ...

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.
