Dr Tresser and all the staff at both the dale Mabry office and the Gunn highway office are amazing! It saddens me to hear so many complain about the waiting time to see them when unforeseen situations arise and appointments are delayed. Please try and understand they perform surgeries every day of the week before coming to the office and operations don’t always take the time anticipated. Would you want a surgeon to rush your surgery? Be patient as they are with you. 5 stars all the way!!!!!!

I previously provided a negative review & now regret that because I would not want to steer anyone away from Dr. Tresser.My husband’s surgery was delayed due to a clerical error, but Tresser & his surgical team did an amazing job. We are only a month since his surgery & my husband has gone from barley walking to five plus miles a day. The entire experience at the hospital from pre-op to post-op was exceptional to say the least. Tresser was recommended by several doctors as the best neurosurgeon

Extremely grateful for the accuracy of assessment and execution of my procedure. Positive results such as steadiness when walking were immediately evident after the laminoplasty performed Dec. 20th. Recovery though challenging, is hopeful and eagerly anticipated thanks to the skill and confidence of this healthcare professional. Thank you Dr. Tresser

I have hardware IN my spinal canal! Surgery 3/18/15. I was in so much pain after surgery and no one understand why, Tresser went on vacation the very next day. I now know, thanks to Mayo Clinic that there is a screw that completely missed the vertebrae. I have another broken rod and Mayo will only operate if I develop new neurological symptoms because..... they would (in their words) feel duty bound to fix st least some of the problems and that may be worse than the original surgery!

This clinic does not have control of all the processes/services that it is trying to implement/provide. Patients are getting lost in the shuffle and I predict that this chaos will result in the medical liability of a mishandled patient. I have been a nurse for over 25 years and have managed medical clinics/trained clinical employees for many of those years and in my professional opinion I would recommend seeking medical treatment elsewhere as I am doing. 9 days and counting for MRI.

Don't dare ask him a question twice, or even rephrase it if you didn't understand his gruff answer. He will slap his hand on his desk and blurt out 'I already answered that.' He does not volunteer any information, so bring your list of questions, and then don't expect an answer. He is only interested in his work. He is cold as ice.

I would highly recommend Dr. Tresser to anyone out there with spine and neuro issues. It took me over two weeks to find someone that I trusted also someone that has a great reputation because I did not want to leave my spine in any surgeons hands. Dr. Tresser has helped me regain my range of motion as well as my feeling in my left hand. I’m very grateful that I found him as my surgeon and would highly recommend him.
