"The non-laser surgery was explained as a small incision, then scraping out some build-up visible on an MRI. Again, Dr.
did not want to build up my expectations." The surgery was about 2 hours, followed by several hours in the hospital to recuperate before I went home. Most insurances do not cover an overnight stay; mine would have but Dr.
said it was my decision about whether I wanted to stay or not, as he felt I could go home if I felt up to it. I went home in the early evening and was back to work in less than a week. No pain. This operation gave me my life back.

"It went well. The only thing I would say is they left any follow up up to me rather than suggesting what that follow up should be. I found this a bit off-putting. I needed their guidance. The" receptionist with whom I interacted was terribly flippant and non-professional, in my opinion.

"I waited almost an hour to get called into a room. Then I waited another 20 minutes or so to see the doctor. He was pleasant enough, not very friendly. I did not connect with him" on my first visit like I do with most of my other doctors. When I called back for more information I did get very good service from the receptionist and PA. I have tentatively set up surgery for May.

I am currently on my 10th day of recovery and can't believe how good I feel for the extensive surgery that Dr.
Larkspur Neurosurgeons Provider Name Locked
performed. From the moment I met with him, I knew he would be my surgeon but everyone close to me insisted that I get other opinions from Orthopedic Spine surgeons. Well all they did was scare me to death and I was unhappy that I had waited so long to get in to see them when I could have had my surgery sooner. All worked out for the best though. When I met with Dr.
Larkspur Neurosurgeons Provider Name Locked
a second time with more questions he answered honestly, with detail and genuine concern for my health. After surgery, he was just as attentive and compassionate as was his Physicians Assistant, Ed. I spent two nights in the hospital and he came in to see me both days. On the second day, (between his surgeries) I was so thrilled and overwhelmed at the relief I was already experiencing that tears came to my eyes. I thanked him, hugged him and said 'can I go home now?' The qualities that Dr.

posess can't be taught in school. You either have the depth of character and compassion within you or you don't. I am so thankful that his chosen profession and specialty could myself and so many other people. His staff is just as wonderful, attentive, professional, eager to help and answer your questions. If you need spine surgery, he is the only doctor you should consider.

asked if I had any final request (sounds ominous doesn't it?) and knowing he is a Christian I asked him to pray for us and the procedure. I felt from the prayer he had prayed before (important for someone about to cut a 4" slit across the front of your throat!) and before I had taken 3 more breaths I was asleep.The next week I had problems (not going to get into that) and made an appointment to see Dr.

asap. He examined me and sent me back to the hospital to take care of the problem (the problem was not caused by his neglect).I have one more follow-up appointment before hopefully being done with this issue.

he was very personable, he explained everything, he answered all of my questions in a very respectful way, he didn't talk down to me. He was spot on, and the whole surgery thing, he was just a great mechanic. He did a great job on my surgery, and my neck is better than ever.

Overall my relationship and continued work with Dr
Larkspur Neurosurgeons Provider Name Locked
is excellent. He is confident and is not afraid to speak his mind about my case. He is definitely a leader and takes each case stand alone to evaluate the proposed actions. He will let you provide your input but I aphave also had him make definitive statements that were not under discussion where he felt strongly and I do trust him in that aspect. His staff are okay, I wouldn't say they are great or anything, and you really have to wrangle them especially if he notes something in your chart. For example physical therapy or x rays I have had to argue with them about orders he wrote that they claimed he didn't write and had to demand they pull my visit sheet and the guess what? All of a sudden I get a call for the X-

We were very impressed with him. He hasn't done the surgery yet. The office was very clean. The help was very knowledgeable and helpful. He seemed to be very attentive and listened to what my husband was talking about. He read the report and then he actually checked out my husband. He told us about the diagnosis. It took us a little long to get in but it was worth the wait. His punctuality wasn't any worse than any other doctor; I didn't think it was that bad. We haven’t gotten to the treatment yet. They took our co-pay right there.
