Great surgeon, but very money hungry!! My physical therapist told me to find a new neurosurgeon since he wants to do a second surgery that's not necessary. He also laughs at you when you mention a chiropractor and gets mad at you when you mention getting a second opinion. Very rude bedside manors. I would not recommend to anyone, except for an emergency surgery.
