    I came to Dr. Kuklo's office by recommendation from my primary care physician. I was suffering from severe pain in my cervical spine and numbness in my hands and forearm's. Long story short, after my cervical spinal fusion surgery I immediately felt relief of my symptoms. It has been a year since my surgery and I have to say my surgery was literally life changing. I have very little to no pain and my symptoms are improving every day. I cannot possibly thank this amazing team enough. Awesome!

    I am a new patient and was in their office for two hours... I spoke with Kandice and out of the blue, she suggested a treatment and asked me to wait, she came back with Dr. Kuklo who was just getting ready to leave, but he turned back to come in to see me! I treated me and spoke to me kindly and so did Kandice. I do hope this treatment works and I am appreciative for both of them working with me to help me feel better.

    He is a very likeable person and tells you what to expect with your recovery and how to take deal with the pain. He explains things very well so you understand in layman terms. I tell my friends and family if they need to take care of back problems see DR. KUKLO!! He is wonderful and so is his assistant "KATY"!!

    Has done 4 different surgeries on me since 2000, two on my neck and two lumbar. The guy is a magician.
