I had three spinal surgeries by Dr. Susanne Fix and it was the absolute worst decision of my life. I ended up going back and forth from Wasilla for 15 months for an incision that wouldn't heal and was never told of the "wound clinic" I ended up being septic and diagnosed with MRSA. I survived that and a blood clot from a PICC line that was used for the life saving antibiotics. After six months of treatment I had a 12 hour revision surgery to remote hardware and stabilize spinexpensive.

Took my daughter to Dr Fix in July 2015. She was 7. I needed a new doctor in AK. After an hour with dr Fix she said my daughter needs an MRI. Also an X-ray. I said I was invented the MRI would set her shunt to zero. She said it was necessary. She called me once. I set up the MRI and was never called back and never heard another word. I paid over $300 for that initial 1hr talk. Nothing was done and I called twice to get MRI with no one getting back to me. I will Never go back!

After consulting with countless Neurosurgeons in the NW and having my neck fused twice before, Dr Fix and staff were a godsend. I so wish I would have come across her before visiting so many others that just treated you as a file and a dollar sign . I remember one of her first statements to me was I treat the patient not the X-ray Her entire staff is fantastic and Candace goes above and beyond what I have experienced in the past at other clinics. Alaska is lucky to have her .

I have undergone 2 spinal surgeries with Dr. Fix with several more to come. Both went very well. Post op care was excellent. When I called the office I had all calls returned in a timely manner, staff was well informed of my status, my pain was recognized and dealt with immediately, she visited me in the hospital daily.1 surgery was urgent so Dr. Fix interrupted her home holiday to do the procedure. When complications arose Dr. Fix handled my care herself. She is not offended by 2nd opinions.
