Disappointed but blessed.
I had back surgery in 2014 and Dr. S did the surgery. He is an excellent surgeon. I don't think I could have asked for a better surgery or outcome. However, I was not subscribed sufficient pain meds for 2 weeks. Dr. S could not be reached afterhours--at all. Nor could he be reached on weekdays because he was "in surgery." I asked if the hospital had phone numbers. She said yes, but he could not be interrupted. So I was left to suffer severe pain for 2 long weeks, until I had my first checkup. Next checkup the nursed insisted that I get a TENS type unit that attached to my ear for back pain. At that time, I was in no pain and told her so. I was completely off pain meds. Didn't matter. They put it on it on me anyway. By the end of the day, my ear was killing me, but my back was fine. I tore it off and threw it away. Total waste of time and money. There's more but I'm out of characters. I suffered greatly because his office was a circus. I will never go back to Dr. S.

The staff and physicians in this office are truly saviors to me. From the love exuding from the wonderful Savannah who greets me, to the amazing and knowledgeable Dr Seth, who is the only reason I'm walking today. I had no where to turn when I came here. And, thanks to them, I can at least STAND and fight the effects of my connective tissue disorder. I'd recommend them 1000 times over.

I had an age related injury that was causing me to loose the feeling in my legs as well as the ability to use the. Not to mention the pain but with my back fusion I am able to work again. Hold my grandkids and enjoy outside activity again. I am a healthcare worker and sole breadwinner so as far as I am concerned they saved my life. God bless them !

After nearly fifty years of playing the violin professionally in symphony orchestras I was left with a badly damaged cervical spine that caused debilitating chronic daily headaches for decades as well as many other troubling symptoms. Dr. Seth recommended anterior cervical discectomy with fusion and ultimately performed this procedure on discs C2 through C7. Following surgery my chronic headaches and other symptoms are gone, an outcome that borders on the miraculous. I could not be happier. A hearty thank you to Dr. Seth and the staff at SPI.
