Patient Comments (2)

Before visiting Dr Rigsby, we read a few negative comments about him not being friendly but we chose to see him anyways. We are so glad that we did. Dr Rigsby was very personable and informed us of my husband's condition without sugarcoating anything. He performed lumbar laminectomy surgery on my husband a week ago. The surgery was a success and I would definitely recommend him to anyone with back problems. His nurse, Brenda, is also very helpful. They went above and beyond.

Waiting room was dusty, stains on the carpet, light bulbs were burnt out. Waited Approx. 1 hr to be taken to the back, waited another 45 Min to see the Dr. After our consultation I decided to get a second opinion
