I HAVE BEEN TO DR RAMBO THREE TIMES AND ALL THREE TIMES HE SAID I DID NOT NEED SURGERY. WELL I AM GLAD I GOT ANOTHER DR TO LOOK AT MY CASE BECAUSE NOT ONLY DID I NEED SURGERY BUT NEED IMMEDIATE SURGERY BECAUSE I HAD TWO DISC THAT WHERE BLOWN OUT AMONG OTHER DISC THAT NEED FIXING!! I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND DR RAMBO TO ANYONE. IF YOUR A PATIENT OF HIS I WOULD GET ANOTHER DR TO CHECK BEHIND HIM

Dr. Rambo and his 2 PAs are knowledgeable, professional, and best of all, friendly. I had lower back surgery and had zero complications. I feel like a million dollars and the recovery was virtually pain-free. Would recommend anyone needing back surgery to consider Dr. Rambo.
in Columbia, SC |
Dr. Rambo conducted two spinal surgeries on me. First, an anterior cervical C4-C5 discectomy, (July '15) and secondly a posterior cervical fusion C3-C6 (Dec.'15). Dr. Rambo is the utmost professional. He sets realistic expectations and tells it like it is. I value that and have complete confidence that I have the best chance for recovery and healing with Dr. Rambo as my surgeon. There's no need for me to consider any one else. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
