    My experience with Dr Main is excelente, he's an angel, the best doctor ever. Two years ago I got a cervical double discectomy and fusion with Dr. Main I got a excelente experience, my surgery was successful. And now, I got a fusion surgery on my lumbar spine 5 days ago. I'm doing well, he and his staff took a very good care of me and I'm doing good so far. I will recommend this doctor.

    I have been with Dr.Main for 21 years and am completely satisfied with my care. I also have sent many friends and family to hum for treatment and all were happy.

    The surgery went fine but for my follow-up appointment, Dr. Main was a no-show. I re-scheduled the appointment for the following week and AGAIN he did no show up. I'm shocked that he did not turn up for his patients for two weeks in a row. Thank god I'm not having difficulty after the surgery because he certainly isn't around to help - literally just did not show up and none of his staff knows where he is.
