Just had my second surgery with him. His staff is excellent and friendly. My recovery is going well with no complications. He is still keeping me walking I couldn't ask for more.

I can t thank Dr Reed and his staff enough...after suffering literally for a year and a half, chiropractor, acupuncture, massage therapy and epidural pain shots, one minimally invasive surgery is all it took. Surgery on Monday, and back to work on Thursday. Couldn't be happier.
