The best descision I have ever made was having Dr. Sweeney operate on my Cervical Spine. Years of medication, shots, and procedures are over Before the surgery I could not travel in a car for more than 1 hour, could not bend my neck backwards without pain..By the third day after surgery my pain was gone. Less than a year later I am active and doing things I have not been able to do for twenty years. Dr. Sweeney's staff made the process seamless. .

Very courteous, listened to me, concerned about me, wise enough to learn about me before we met. Professional, very good experience for my first visit.

Straight to business, very thorough explaining the procedure. Comes across as a very intelligent man with a lot of confidence. I found him to be excellent, I hade a herniated disc that the procedure only took a half hour or so and I was completely pain free. If he were a woman, I would of kissed him. I would highly recommend himself and his staff to anybody. Thank you again you, unfortunately I am fairly confident I have another disc out, it was iffy when at the time. 3 yrs 0 complaints.

STAY AWAY - this surgeon botched my son's back then he had to undergo 2 Microdiscectomy surgeries from another surgeon to fix him.

Dr. Sweeney realized and assessed the pain that I was in and took action. His staff is wonderful and caring and somehow made room for me in Dr. Sweeney's schedule so that he could do minimal invasive surgery for a herniated disc. The pain relief was immediate and with a bit of self chosen PT, I hope to regain and improve on my leg strength. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have had Dr. Sweeney as my surgeon
