I had severe "pinching" pain in my lower back and found out that I no longer had any disc left, I was bone on bone. Dr. Jorgenson and his awesome assistant, Sari, were incredible. I had fusion surgery and it was life-changing! They gave me my life back and I am forever grateful to them!

Only met with him 1 time prior to surgery. Saw him for less than a min. day of surgery and again for release. I am still in pain and have numbness in arms and hands as well as now I have Horner's Syndrome due to an error in surgery. The entire right side of my head and face including pupil is partially paralyzed. My right vocal cord is 100% paralyzed and I have to have plastic surgery to correct it so I can have a voice again. I Do Not recommend and I will never go there again. with seeing other reviews I am astonished they are still allowed to practice.

Dr. Jorgensen and Siri his assistant have left me with more issues than I started with. I had spinal fusion surgery L5/S1 the original complaints were bilateral sciatica and back pain. Now I am trying to find out why someone would tell you they would provide at home PT that never happened. I can only say at this point is severe caution should be used when choosing the spine institute of Idaho. I would not recommend ever.

Dr J and his PA Sari tried to take care of my spinal stenosis. I had 2 steroid shots which didn't work and then I was scheduled for a fusion of my lumbar spine. Even though I was working with the Spine Institute for months to treat this leg pain, I feel like I never got to discuss my care with a doctor. In this case, Dr J. At this point I still have leg pain and am trying to find another spine surgeon to discuss my spinal stenosis.

Dr. Jorgenson didn't listen or try to understand my condition, he was no help. I waited 45 minutes in a room before he came in, he was in a rush, spent less than 5 minutes with me. Total waste of my time. I'm Seeking help from another Dr.

Waited 1.5 hours before PA came in to go over my MRI. Told me I needed surgery. Asked if I still wanted to see Dr Jorgenson. I declined and left. I am now seeking out another provider.

Phenomenal. Removed hardware from my lumbar spine (S-I joint). Outpatient surgery. Surgery was at 7am. That same afternoon I was enjoying lunch on a downtown patio. No need for post-op pain meds. Thank you!
