I had surgery now 5 years ago and this Dr. Hodges change my life for ever. I had to learn to walk again. All that has had a successful surgery I'm glad, he destroyed my life. I can walk again no thanks to him but I have lots of health issues from a neck fusion, avoid him at all costs. No doctor will help me, to this day.

The most extraordinary Doctor I ever met ! We went to over 10 physicians in Florida where we live with our 17 year old son . His life was at a stand still. Dr Hodges gave us cautionary advise over the phone . Expressing his concerns on extreme procedures for such a young man . After 6 months and no treatment or extreme surgery suggestions. We called up Dr Hodges on a Thursday had a minimally evasive discectomy done the next Wednesday. My son was resting comfortably in a Hotel . Amazing gifted hands , but also 5 star character. Showed compassion and care for our son as if he was is own . Hospital CHI memorial and team was also awesome.

It was my first visit. I don't do well with white coats, but Dr Hodges was thorough and kind. I went in thinking it was my hips that was the problem and he immediately diagnosed a different issue. His staff was energetic and compassionate.
