    Pompano Beach, FL |
    A few years ago I was in an accident and injured my neck. After months of pain and failed treatments, I was sent to him and started treatment. He tried conservative treatment like the others did, but when I continued in pain he did surgery on my neck. For the first time since my accident I was able to sleep through the night and the pain that was in the back of my head and right arm was comletely gone and has been since. I can not thank him enough for giving me back my life. Excellent dr

    Had both neck and back surgery after failed surgery elsewhere and did great with complete relief of my pain. He was very knowledgeable and I am very pleased. Highly recommend.
