BOTH Dr Subbaiah & Dr Chen are incredible doctors.They are kind compassionate caring and phenomenal surgeons. My husband had a minimal invasive procedure for spinal stenosis came out of operation sitting in a chair with a cup of coffee a cookie and no pain at all. I could not believe itCame home and did not have one pain through the Total Recovery. Nor did he have one pain pill. It was almost like a miracle5 years ago and he is still doing well today.They are called "Book ENDS".The Best Surgeons

Dr. Sabbaiah & the whole staff is very helpful & knowledgeable. They were kind & always have an answer for any questions that I had. I was well informed of what was wrong with me, the procedure & what needed to be done. the surgery i feel was a success & was very painless. My recovery, even though I'm just 12 days out of surgery is very easy going so stressless. I appreciate all they have done for me.

Dr. Subbaiah was fantastic from my first appointment through surgery and post surgery. He was very attentive and answered all of my questions. At the hospital he had fantastic bedside manner and explained every step of the operation. I would recommend him to anyone with a spinal injury.

I was having severe lower back pain, I could not stand up straight ,less alone stand for any period of time. My wife said I resembled the walking dead. After visiting five other doctors, physical therapy, epidural injections and chiropratic work I decided to go to Dr Subbaiah after a recomendation. from my wife's cousin. Dr. Subbaiah was very friendly and reasureing . I had my surgery walked out of the recovery room and was home that evening. I was a new person my life was returned to me.
