Most thorough visit I have ever had to check my neck, shoulder and back pain. He and Dr. Ricci had wonderful bedside manners, listened to my concerns and offered solutions. I am very pleased with my initial visit.

Dr. Agochukwu impressed me greatly with the way he continuously studied the MRI during the process of readying for the surgery. He thought of every way possible to leave me with the greatest range of motion possible. After removing the pressure off the nerves, He fused only two vertebrae together, then placed a rod from L-1 to L-5. He showed me the x-ray and it appears to be like bicycle chain links at each level with the rod passing through each link. The surgery was a total success. J. Martin
