Dr. Humphreys' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Humphreys "Dr. Humphreys' practice philosophy is to explore and exhaust all non-surgical options in advance of the patient considering spine surgery. This includes the use of spine-specialized therapy and injections that can relieve pain symptoms. KenaiSpine is a work in progress, as he hopes to develop spine-specialized therapy for the region to complement and augment his spine surgery expertise. He enjoys being part of the Alaska medical community, and welcomes other physicians to contact him directly."

Patient Comments (1)
Homer, AK |
Dr. Humphreys was highly recommended by my local orthopedic surgeon. Dr. H listened carefully and paid attention to all my symptoms, instead of discounting them as others have. He treats me as a person not just another patient. He never rushes me. My complex surgery was successful and he came to visit me in the hospital personally several times. He has given me hope for a physically active future. He also gets high praise from all the medical professionals I encounter.
Thank you for the positive review. We appreciate the feedback and are pleased to partner with you in your healthcare. Sincerely, Dr. Craig Humphreys and staff
