My first visit to Dr. David. I was impressed with his medical knowledge and compassion. He is an excellent communicator and listener, and seemed to be genuinely concerned about my back problems and finding solutions. He gave me a thorough exam and offered recommendations, including further testing. His front- and back-office staff were very pleasant. I had to wait a long time in the waiting room, but once I was taken to an exam room, the doctor saw me promptly and gave me plenty of time.

Go back to see him Aug. 31. Very caring.

I hate surveys and online reviews. However, I promised my doc's assistant I would take this survey. Dr. Stephen David is the salt of the Earth. A truly sympathetic and caring human being. He took the time to explain all the risks and benefits to having the procedure. He personally called me after I left the hospital to see how I was doing-I was high as hell and don't really remember the content of the call, but my husband confirmed this actually happened. Go get yo' back all fixed up!
in Weaverville, NC |
Dr David is the best listener I have ever encountered. Not only that he is kind, gentle, and above all highly skilled and professional. I would recommend him without any reservations.
in Asheville, NC |
The best spine doc in WNC & anywhere! Unlike most healthcare professionals, he spends a lot of time with me. He's the greatest!!
in Leicester, NC |
Dr. David was kind and caring. He listened to my symptoms and carefully explained the procedure he thought would provide the best results. He answered the questions posed by my family and never appeared rushed or impatient. I was experiencing severe sciatica and his proposed surgery worked - I am now pain free. His nurse was also excellent. Blue Ridge Bone & Joint was organized, efficient, and professional - they did what they said they would do.

Extremely well qualified, skilled professional, excellent listener & communicator.
in Asheville, NC |
The best healthcare experience from start to finish. I felt like I was the only patient that mattered.
in Sylva, NC |
Dr. David has a very good personality. He explains the problem and/or solution to the the problem so that I could understand what was needed and the process and outcome I should expect. Also able to have a prompt appointment when I called his office. This was my first visit with Dr. David and I was very pleased.
in Burnsville, NC |
Dr. David is very interested in your condition, is extremely friendly and most courteous. Listens to your complaint, is not in a hurry and wants to answer all questions. Performed back surgery and had immediate relief from almost a year of terrible pain. Was able to go home the same day and recovery has been superb!
in Hendersonville, NC |
Following my surgery to alleviate debilitating leg pain from spinal stenosis, I can now stand and walk with no leg pain. For anyone contemplating surgery for spinal stenosis, I would offer my highest recommendation for Dr. David (and his capable and friendly staff) to both advise and potentially perform this surgery. His knowledge, skill and demeanor were comforting in allaying my fear of back surgery, and the results of the surgery have been overwhelmingly positive.
in Swannanoa, NC |
He is a very attentive and truly concerned Physician. Always soft spoken and sincere. He has been caring for me over 4 years now, and after 13 years of pain, I am now only on pain meds if I truly over do it. That is very rare. His surgeries on me have truly been a remarkable turning point in my life. This is a doctor that knows how to help a patient get more out of life. What a blessing he has been to me.
in Leicester, NC |
He came in on his day off just to expedite my need for surgery, in order for me to get some quick relief. He explained and showed on a model where my issues was and how he would go in and provide the relief that was needed for my Sciatic Pain. What touched me the most was his concern and comfort toward me while I was being examined while in so much pain.
in Rutherfordton, NC |

Dr. David is friendly, professional and compassionate. He spends time explaining not only the problem you have but the solution as well. Great surgeon!
in Black Mountain, NC |
He was very kind and considerate, gave my good advice, and performed successful surgery. I feel much better now (just two weeks after surgery) than before.
in Weaverville, NC |
Three nurses recommended Dr. David to me. One is an OR nurse who has assisted him with the procedure I had. They said he is the best. I agree! He is very friendly and interested in what I have to say, as well as answering all my questions. Three weeks and three days after my laminectomy, I swam a mile.
in Dandridge, TN |
Dr David is one of the finest surgeons I have ever met. He truly cares for his patients and will take the necessary time to discuss your injury and treatment. After the first visit I knew I had found a Physcian who really cares about seeing that my issue was resolved. After suffering for 7 years Dr David reviewed my case and established an appropriate treatment which consisted of neck surgery to repair disks. I can finally say I am pain free.
in Weaverville, NC |
Dr. David has a great personality. I totally trusted him doing my back surgery. The staff at BRB&J are very friendly. Several weeks after my surgery, I was in pain & they gave me an appointment that afternoon. I highly recommend Dr. David & his staff if you need neck or back surgery.Dr. David answered all of my questions before & after surgery.
