Ron's Story
Ron's Advice

Dr. Brower did my neck surgery in September 2015 and I saw him twice for follow up...I am impressed and very happy with the results!

Very good experience so far. I have confidence in this office and Dr. Brower.

After three years of pain and five orthopedic doctors, Dr. Brower was the one who finally found the problem, why I was in pain all the time.

Dr. Brower removed a spinal cyst in 2013.  I'm scheduled for surgery in March 2016 again with Dr. Brower for an extreme lateral interbody fusion surgical procedure.  I consider him to be an outstanding surgeon.

I would never schedule an appointment with any other spine surgeon than Dr. Brower.  He is the best and did two previous neck surgeries on me and was great.

Dr. Brower was very positive in explaining my problem.  He told me exactly what the issue is and how he would treat it - I appreciate this.

Dr. Brower was courteous and thorough. I was impressed that he shared my difficult situation with gentleness and professionalism.

Met with Dr. Brower for three-month checkup for back surgery. He explained where I was in recovery and answered all questions I had. Very satisfying visit.

Dr. Brower and his staff are the reason I am still here! I am thankful to have Dr. Brower as my surgeon.

Dr. Brower and his entire staff were outstanding to work with throughout my illness. Just super.

Dr. Brower is an excellent doctor & a wonderful human being - compassionate, understanding & willing to answer questions! His staff is also the same. Very very pleased with everyone!
