I had back surgery a little over a year ago. I know everyone's situation is different and results vary, but I could not be more pleased with the outcome. Dr. Errington and his staff were great and answered all of my questions to my satisfaction.

Beware!

Dr Errington is rude. He regularly made me wait in excess of an hour in the room, then rushed through the appointment. He actually told me "I don't have time for your questions" when I had concerns post-surgically. When I told him about my pain and concerns, he dismissed it, saying I was "experiencing the human condition." He became angry that I accessed my own MRI and read it and had questions about it. I need more surgery, but I will never go back to Dr. Errington.
