Dr. King is a phenomenal neurosurgeon! After years of searching for a cause to my son's health care problems, we were referred to Dr. King and everything changed. Upon our arrival, he had already reviewed years worth of gathered medical imaging, reports, and all other pertinent medical data regarding my son. After listening to my son's description of his problems, and a thorough neurological assessment, he had a diagnosis for my son. He is now 3 months post-op and already living a new life!
We are thanking God for Dr. King! My husband and I were so shocked when we heard I had a bone tumor on my skull and had many questions that we needed answered as soon as possible. Dr. King not only scheduled an appointment within 48 hours, he called personally to answer our questions and put our minds at ease about the surgery within 24 hours. His support staff, Cathy and Milano, were so helpful! Dr. King is an excellent skilled, caring neurosurgeon that we highly recommend!! Dave and Vivian

Outstanding practitioner, highly regarded neurosurgeon by my entire medical support team. The procedures were clearly explained beforehand and performed as expected with much better initial results than anticipated. What else matters?
