From top to bottom, my visit was timely, professional and personable. The entire staff was/is excellent! Dr. Protopsaltis is very conservative and did not make me feel like there was a need to rush into surgery

He performed surgery on my lower back and used a newer technique that known as MIS - Minimally invasive surgery minimally invasive surgery thus I had a faster recovery, minimal blood loss and least amount of pain. I was walking a day after surgery. Had an incredible speedy recovery. He’s a gifted surgeon. I’d give him ten stars if I could.

I had to have a second neck surgery, specifically a disk replacement after an old fusion. This doctor is the nicest and most patient, answering all questions in detail and being available for follow up. Even more importantly he showed remarkable caring in the hospital before and after the surgery and I had results much better than expected with fewer and shorter difficulties or complications post-op. As a physician myself I would recommend him to any friend or family member without hesitation. I believe he is exceptional among his peers.

DIFFICULT OFFICE, DIFFICULT STAFF. On June 23rd 2018 I called the office to schedule an appointment and a lady told me to call back. I did but I did not have a response until July 12 2018 when I spoke with Kenya who was not helpful, confused what I have said and made lots of mistakes. Also they appt was given to me for a month later and then canceled. After filing a complaint with Patient Relations another woman called me was pretty nice at first then very bossy DON'T NEED THIS

He did a wonderful job on me. Had anterior/posterior surgery April 2016. I am pain free after, not a single pain medication since. I am blessed to have him as my surgeon. Thanks a million to you. I do recommend him highly to everyone. Trust me, he's really really good.
