What People Say About Dr. Stephanus Viljoen, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Dr. Stephanus Viljoen has been blessed with the skills deserving the utmost respect and appreciation. His approach is compassionate, comprehensive and patient-centered. By involving his patients fully in their neurosurgical care, he provides them with the information they need to take full advantage of their treatment while being entirely engaged in the process. From the onset of my first meeting with Dr. Viljoen, it was clear he was the neurosurgeon I desired to perform my TLIF surgery. The primary reasons for selecting him were: 1) he reduced anxiety by personalizing the surgical procedure; 2) Dr. Viljoen explained the operation in understandable terms; 3) he received highest recommendations from fellow doctors and hospital administrators; and, 4) his medical team cared about their patients and ensured they received the best treatment. I will not hesitate to call upon Dr. Viljoen if future need for surgical intervention arises.

dr viljoen performed comprehensive emergency neck surgery on me the day following my visit. when we met he showed patience and concern for my situation. he took time to explain the situation, risks, expectations, results if not performed, and provided his opinion. he and his staff have been very responsive with our questions through the recovery. when I met dr viljoen I could barely walk and now I am!
