I had injured my neck many years ago. After testing he told me I needed surgery. When I woke up after surgery I started vomiting and I was sick all day and night. My fear of damaging my neck was great. Finally the next day I was given something to stop it. I felt totally abandoned and neglected. He failed to tell me of the things I should and shouldn't do. My neck didn't heal correctly. I have suffered ever since. He's bedside manor is very cold and impatient.

Dr. Jones has performed two surgeries for me in the past 22 years. He is a brilliant surgeon and a compassionate doctor. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who is experiencing back pain.

I had back problems and had consulted 2 other doctors. One wanted to do a double fusion. I suffered the pain for 6 months. I chose Dr jones because of other golfing buddies successful surgeries. He did a diskectomy and a laminactomy, ( two holes in back)I can't spell them. I could hardly walk when I went in and I felt so much better leaving the hospital. He believes in maintaining the integrity of your back and he is gifted. I am still great at 74 ys old 1 1/2 later. He's the best!

In Feb 2016 i experienced severe pain in my right leg. I had suffered back pain for 30 years. I was referred to Dr Jones. I met with Dr Jones on a Monday and surgery was performed as an outpatient on Thursday. I walked out of the hospital Thursday afternoon essentially pain free. I would recommend Dr Jones without reservation to any one with similar problems. WFB

I suffered from lower back pain for 34 years of my life and then I decided to seek medical help. I went to Doctor Jones and the surgery he performed has eliminated my suffering from my lower back pain. It has been a year now and I continue to not have any pain or any issues at all with my lower back. The surgery has been a great success for me. My thanks to Dr. Jones for relieving me of all that pain. Thanks a million!!!
