St. Clair, MI |
A life saver - performed two syrinx surgeries that stopped progression of paralysis each about 10 years apart. Could not locate such a surgeon in Michigan. He can seemed reserved but his skills make up for that. Would not hesitate to recommend him to others in their time of trouble. Believe he is one of the reasons Mayo is ranked number 1 in Nuerosurgery in the United States.

it was a non-experience, he had no interest or concern for my condition
