Dr. O'Brien Testimonial

Dr. O’Brien, Just a quick note to again thank you very much for the terrific surgery you performed on my back this past [month]. I feel confident that you have put me back on the road to good back health. I truly appreciate your time and effort and for your being able to do everything that you did for me.

Dr. O'Brien Testimonial

Dr. O’Brien – I just returned from our family trip to Kenya…I wanted to personally thank you for making it possible for me to take this trip of a life time with my children and grandchildren. It was, at times, physically demanding with the very bumpy jeep rides—climbing up and down — and 16 hours of flying to and from Nairobi. My back was 100%…

Dr. Fisch Testimonial

Dr. Fisch, thank you for your understanding, your compassion, your sense of humor, and for not giving up on me. I trust your abilities, your communication and for the many years now I trust in the confidence you instill in me. It all gives me the strength to deal with “whatever” challenges I need to accept and accommodate in my life. I admit that presently…

Dr. Fisch Testimonial

Dr. Fisch, where to even start? When I despairingly stumbled into your office on 11/19/18 for my initial appointment… my search for a doctor who actually listened to my symptoms and showed an interest in finding out the root cause of my neck, arm, and hand pain was over! I was totally exasperatedly pushing through life with pain and this agonizing journey had been an…

Dr. O'Brien Testimonial

I’m going to start by saying that Dr. O’Brien has given me my life back. I started having problems about 7 months ago. Initially, it was back pain but it quickly progressed to a horrible nerve, groin, and buttock pain on the right side. I saw one neurosurgeon who suggested epidurals. 4 epidurals and one diagnostic block later, my symptoms were only getting worse. My…

Dr. O'Brien Testimonial

Dr. O’Brien, Upon a short time ago, I realized that I did not give you a complete or accurate report of how I was feeling, because I had not stood up yet. Because I had focused on that, the fact that I slept through the night without waking up with the stabbing pain on my spinal cord. I slept through the night for the first…

Dr. O'Brien Testimonial

After a very long, painful journey I was fortunate enough to have Dr. Joseph O’Brien perform an ACDF Level C5-6, C6-7 in February 2018, and Microdiscectomy Level 4/5 | May 31st. He is an outstanding Spinal surgeon, the absolute best. His level of expertise demonstrates that he has spent years perfecting and researching this particular field. He is compassionate and really cares about communicating with…

Dr. O'Brien Testimonial

I saw Dr O’Brien as a 3rd consult for my spondylolisthesis and L5S1 herniation. My condition had worsened over the last decade and I was headed for a dead nerve and drop foot in the near future. I’m a career fireman so this would have been a condition that would have retired me. I had put off back surgery for many years under the impression…

Dr. Fisch Testimonial

I had neck issues for a few months. I did all kinds of things to try to fix it myself and I finally went to the doctor. Dr. Fisch figured out what was going on pretty quickly. My neck is better with the conservative treatment I received. He is extremely personable as was everyone I dealt with at his office. He kept me informed and…

Dr. Feuchtbaum Testimonial

Dr Eric Feuchtbaum is an amazing Doctor. He is one in a million. Surgically he is very talented, but he also has an amazing bedside manner. He truly cares about his patients and their well being. Dr Feuchtbaum performed surgery on my neck in January 2000. I was in extreme pain prior to surgery. I have had no pain since I woke up from the…

Dr. Feuchtbaum Testimonial

I recently had cervical spine surgery with Dr. Eric Feuchtbaum.  Dr. Feuchtbaum is an excellent surgeon. He explains things carefully and listens thoughtfully. My surgery was a success-I am completely without nerve pain. Dr. Feuchtbaum called me at home personally the day after discharge. He was very receptive to questions and always listened when I had a concern. I highly recommend Dr. Feuchtbaum!
