Best neurosurgeon I have ever met!

Dr. Fossett correctly diagnosed my back issue and both he and his staff worked so hard in getting my insurance approvals and doing what needed to be done to get my operation asap. Dr. Fossett grew up with back issues himself, so he knows what his patients are going through. I think everyone reading this should see him to get the relief they need and the care they deserve!

My experience with this doctor was great. It's just that since my surgery in 2001, I am still suffering from chronic lower back pain.
