I meet with Dr. Samuel D. Small this past year due to Lumbar spinal stenosis. Dr. Small on all office visits was very professional,friendly, and caring.Dr. Small is very kind to speak to me so I understand what needs to be done regarding surgery. Prior to my surgery on 8/30/2016 I could barely walk two blocks due to constant pain in my right leg; Now I can walk up to four miles a day.I would highly recommend Dr. Samuel D. Small & his staff to anyone.

Dr. Small was great today. Dr Small came highly recommended. He took the time in providing & assisting my husband and I to make a sound decision of a serious neck injury. He was straight forward, allowed me to make my own choices and provided me with a sense of relief. Dr. Small & the office staff is A++. A surgeon I actually enjoyed meeting. Dr. Small did not sugar coat the situation, which is a quality that I beyond appreciated. Thank you Dr. Small for caring so much about your patients.
Dr Small is the first doctor who truly listened to me and immediately diagnosed my medical condition. He has surgically stabilized my neck and my spine which relieved my pain as much as is possible. He's a kind, soft spoken person who cares about his patients. I'm very blessed to have him as my physician.
