    I was just looking up Dr. Tresser's info to refer him to a friend. I don't usually do surveys but was surprised to see anything less than 5 stars for Dr Tresser. He did a repair on a very painful ruptured disk in by back over 2 years ago. I don't know how it could have gone better. I've had no issues. I've had problems with that disk for 15 years. It's been great to live without pain again. The scar was minimal. I would definitely go back and refer him to friends and family.

    I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. He is too quick to get you out of his office and if he doesn't know how to treat you he says there's nothing wrong with you and just to live with your pain. I went to him for a second opinion on a possible tumor in my spine and he said just keep an eye on it and if it grows address it. He stated if we already had a plan on what to do why did we come to him. He is very inpersonable and didn't even do an examination . Find another doctor!

    Need surgery on me that wasn't necessary. Would not recommend it trust him

    Update, Dr.Tresser didn't advise Steroid shots for my back as he said that they could elevate with my blood sugar level (I am diabetic). I got a second opinion, and had shots two weeks ago, that surgeon told me that the shots wouldn't interfere with my blood sugar levels since the quantity of steroid is so low. So, after shots and no blood sugar complication, I am pain free for the first time in over one year, no thanks to this doctor.

    Highly arrogant and did everything to possible to belittle me. From questioning my education to asking if the weight I put down on the form was real. Never once asked what his survey questions meant to me when I listed different daily issues; he just gave them a number. I wouldn't recommend him to perform a neutering on a dog.
    Very quick to get you out. Doesn't take time with his patients. Not the happiest of Dr. Although he is very thorough when discussing outcome of surgeries

    Dr Tresser might not smile with you but he's awesome with what he does. I couldn't walk without in pain and after having. L4 L5 with him thank God and Dr Tresser I am now able to live my life normal again.listen to someone who swears that she'll never ever do surgery and now I'm a totally new person because of him. He answered all my husband's and sister questions that they had about me regarding my surgery and during my Hospital stay his visit was very gratifying.
