Patient was diagnosed with lumbar spinal stenosis.
First, let me tell you I am 65 years old and was very physically active. I looked for just the right doctor for my issues for years. I saw 6 different doctors, but the minute I met Danette and Dr. Krumerman, I knew I had found the right one. Five months later, I can walk completely without pain.
I am happier than I can even explain.
Of course, I have recommended friends and family to Dr. Krumerman. I would also like to give a special word of thanks to Sonja Washington.
Patient was diagnosed with lumbar radiculopathy and sciatica.
I would definitely recommend your practice to my friends and family.
This was my fourth surgery, but my first at Dallas Neurosurgical & Spine. All I can say is that this surgery was the only one that has worked. The whole staff was great, but Dr. Krumerman is the best. I have not been pain free in over 10 years and today I can say that I am. Thank you!
Patient was diagnosed with sciatica, lumbar herniated disc and lumbar spondylosis.
From our first contact, the service and attention to detail was flawless. When someone is in pain, they can tend to be crabby and hard to deal with. Any one walking in or contacting you is probably suffering. I know I was. Each person we came in contact with was patient and kind.
Dr. Krumerman had reviewed my records and presented us with all of the options of treatment. He took the time to explain my condition, the procedure, risks and recovery recommendations in a language we could understand. For such a complicated operation, organizing all of the pre-op examinations, admission process, everything was seamless.
DNS has put together a fantastic team and surrounded your practice with qualified practitioners. My experience coming from out of town was far superior to anything I have ever experienced before. Dr. Krumerman is a very talented surgeon with a great "bedside manner." Those qualities are not always found together. Each person I came in contact with reiterated what a great surgeon Dr. Krumerman was and if they needed surgery themselves they would go to him.
You asked me if I had any suggestions that could help improve your practice. In my opinion, there is nothing to improve on.
Patient was diagnosed with sciatica, lumbar herniated disc, and lumbar spondylosis.
Any time anybody asks me about back issues I always recommend Dr. Krumerman.
I have experienced a huge improvement in my back. Since the surgery, I have lost 43 lbs. That‘s in two and a half months. I can now run and play with my kids. I'm still working on my core strength so I can continue to work in a physically demanding job...but overall I’m blessed to have had the help of Dr. Krumerman and his staff. Thank you!

Patient was diagnosed with cervical radiculopathy and cervical spondylosis.
Dr. Krumerman did surgery on my husband on December 29, 2009. He has an excellent bedside manner, was very friendly and his staff was always very caring and helpful. I can't say often enough how wonderful it was to walk in your office and have Dr. Krumerman eliminate my husband's pain.
It feels like we have our lives back and pain-free on top of that! A "Thank you" seems like it isn't enough! The hospital was also very nice, cleaner than anyone I have ever been in and everyone that we saw or spoke to was smiling, was helpful and always asked if we needed anything! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the outstanding care we received and the wonderful experience!
Patient was diagnosed with cervical stenosis and cervical radiculopathy.
Dr. Krummerman and Nan are amazing. I had a spinal fusion in 2009 at C5 and C6. A month ago, I started having pain down my left arm and severe weakness.
I recognized the pain so I immediately called the office, of course, it was a Saturday, so I talked to an associate of Dr. Krumerman's and he suggested I go to Dallas to the ER. I did and followed up with Dr. Krummerman and it's now been 6 weeks and he got me through without surgery. Dr. Krummerman and Nan are so caring and compassionate I trust them with my life. Amazing, amazing people. The entire staff is excellent.
Patient was diagnosed with cervical stenosis, cervical spondylosis and cervical radiculopathy.
My experience with Dallas Neurosurgical & Spine was excellent in every respect.
Dr. Jon Krumerman is a very compassionate and gifted physician and made my surgery and post-op care a very positive experience. I have already recommended him to family and friends.
Dr. Krumerman treated my cervical radiculopathy with neurosurgery performed 12/27/12. When I awoke from surgery 95% of my severe nerve pain was gone! I am now completely pain free! Dr. Krumerman took great care of me throughout the entire process. Thank you Dr. Krumerman.
I was so nervous and scared after being diagnosed with a spinal mass, but Dr. Krumerman was very compassionate and friendly. He answered all my questions and discussed my options being uninsured, which is a huge burden for my family with much sensitivity. I left feeling hopeful and at peace. Thank you, Dr. Krumerman, you are a true example of what a doctor should be to his patients.

Dear Dr. Krumerman,
What a positive experience I had in being under your care. On June 4, 2012 at the Methodist Hospital for Surgery, you did surgery on my back to relieve the constant pain I was having. Sure enough, from the time I took my first walk on the day of the surgery, I have had absolutely no sciatica pain on the left side of my back. I have had so much more energy and it is so wonderful not to have to deal with constant pain any more. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
I also have to compliment you on your incredibly efficient and professional staff. It was such a pleasure dealing with such competent individuals. In particular, I would like to thank Sonja for all of her efforts in scheduling, rescheduling and coordinating my appointments, tests, and surgery.
Finally, a special thank you and appreciation to Nan for her ongoing care to this day! She has literally been there for me 24/7. As you are probably aware by now, I have had a few intervening events in recovering from my surgery, to wit: a fractured foot and a trip and stumble in my leg cast. Even so, I have at all times felt that I am receiving the best of care and have felt very confident in following all of Nan's recommendations and instructions.
I am so looking forward to getting out of the cast, making a full recovery from the surgery and getting back to working out, riding my horse and enjoying a pain-free life.
