What Patients Say

Below are a few reviews from patients who shared their experiences online.

I was back to work within a few days of surgery after suffering with intense neck and back pain for 15 years. I wish I had done this a decade ago. Dr. Gerling was absolutely fantastic. For the first time in as long as I can remember, I am pain free. My surgery was literally life changing.

Surgery Patient

I had a discectomy done in April 2019 by Dr. Gerling. I was having severe pain in my low back that radiated down my right leg. The surgery went great! After 1 month, most of my pain was gone. I am very happy I got this procedure done. Dr. Gerling is a very nice man. Dr. Gerling and his staff held my hand thru everything, every step of the way made me feel very comfortable. I love that about this place.

Surgery Patient

Before surgery I was very scared that I would lose my ability to walk. I had a lot of pain, tingling and numbness shooting down my left leg from a pinch nerve, three herniation's and slip disks. After the surgery, though I am still healing I feel much better. Dr Gerling"s entire staff was very professional and made me feel very comfortable throughout my procedure. Thank you all!
