Worst experience with a provider ever. Sat down and said I need to loose weight, get professional help for that, go back to pcp for PT and pain management and I wasted his time. Have never been so dismissed or disrespected by a provider. Completely unacceptable.

Was disappointed. First thing - you are over 60 and need to lose 50 pounds before even considering any surgery. Sent me to Physical Therapy which didn't help and even made the pain worse when we tried to do more than basic. He prescribed a med that actually helped, and then wouldn't respond to the pharmacists calls to refill. I will be seeking another back dr...

Dr William Stevens is an idiot. Here’s what we used to call in the military and ate-magget, he needs to get over himself. I wouldn’t recommend him even if he was paying the bills, not worth it. Doctors like him have a high potential of being negligent in their field.

Truly the worst experience I’ve ever had with a medical care provider and I’ve had some doozies! He never actually showed me my MRI or the x-rays he had just taken! And then when I was asking questions since he wouldnt actually tell me a diagnosis or anything remotely helpful he would cut me off and then told me I was too anxious..I replied I’m not anxious I’m trying to understand since you aren’t explaining anything! Was unbearably cold and apathetic and insulted my intelligence. Left in tears.

Dr Stevens did not explain what my options were for alleviating my back problem. Very disappointed with the amount of time he spent with me. I drove nearly 50 miles to see him, not his assistant.

Excellent bedside manner. Dr. Stevens is very straight forward. He will be honest with you and is a very genuine person. He completed my back surgery and even personally called my home to follow up and see how I was recovering. My surgery went very well, and I would recommend him to anyone with back issues.

On my initial visit, Dr Stevens sat down with me and shared his findings. I felt comfortsble as he asked questions of me and was patient in answering my questions. He is a no- nonsense specialist, straight forward and I like that There was a warmmess about him that I appreciated. I left feeling that I had been heard and was clear about next steps. I am grateful to had him recommended to me!
