      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
