Dear Dr. Weiner -
It's been almost six months – which I can't believe – since microvascular decompression to relieve my trigeminal neuralgia pain, and I'm still pain free! I am so thankful for you! Your knowledge, your care and concern, everything. I can't thank you enough for taking me on as a patient. I searched you out and you were so accommodating. Thank you, thank you!
Patient was diagnosed with cervical radiculopathy and cervical spondylosis.
Dr. Weiner performed my anterior spinal fusion 6 months ago. The pain and numbness were instantly relieved. Shelly was so helpful in making sure all appointments would work with my schedule and made me feel comfortable with the procedure. Dr. Weiner's entire staff and the hospital staff couldn't have been more helpful.
