Patient Testimonials

I had severe pain in my right arm ,shoulder ,numbness in my right hand fingers, after working on my sons car , Dr. Guitton, he looked at my MRI and advised me of my surgery that was needed. He explained the procedure and set me up to have surgery . I have nothing but great news , he is a outstanding doctor . Highly recommend Dr. Guitton.

Dr Oetting along with Dr Parfenchuck did my back surgery. The outcome was exactly what he promised, no pain in my leg. Now the healing process which can take between 9 and 12 months will be up to me as I do all they told me to do. Walking 2 to 3 miles a day,will help the most.

I've been a patient of Dr. Stewart now for 5 years, and he's absolutely one of the best doctors I've ever had. He's caring, skilled, and puts me at ease. His staff is wonderful, too. I don't usually have to wait very long to be seen. My pain is under control, which I didn't think was possible before. I definitely recommend him to anyone who is suffering from pain.

Dr. Floyd and his entire staff was very attentive and made sure that myself and family was informed about my surgery. I am sure that Dr Floyd gave me very good advise and great treatment. Thank you Doctor Floyd.

Dr. Tuttle is very compassionate and takes his time with you explaining the plan of care. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Baker is a great doctor. He takes time to tell and show you what's wrong. He was caring and understanding and made my life alot more bearable. I love my doctor and grateful to him. Two thumbs up!

Excellent, competent care, by Dr. Forgay's PA, Megan, and by Dr. Forgay. Office staff needs to be more efficient, neater, and pleasant to the patients in clinic and to those on the phone. Several show some snottiness with a little authority over patients. This is not a good environment for patients that are ill and in chronic pain. The employees seem very unhappy dealing with patients.
