Dr Galyon performed spinal fusion on S1-L5-L4 in 2013. I was initially petrified about any type of back surgery. Dr. Galyon displayed knowlede and confidence regarding my advsied procedure. After 3 + years, I now feel very good consdiering the required surgery. My follow ups with Dr. Galyon have been concise, informative and comforting. I confidentaly look forward to improving my spinal health and am deeply indebted to Dr. Daniel Galyon! many Thanks!

severe back pain

I feel that DR. GALYON -has no compassion to patients pain, as no pain level was asked-very unrealistic in his diagnosis-as I have been determined at 40% disabled by comp judge-from prev. injury-now also have ruptured disc.-he determines that if you don't have loss of arms & legs then you are not disabled--& states 25%disabled--by only poking around the leg with a needle--that is the extent of the exam- that may have lasted about 10 min. max--did not ask what my job duties entail-which require lifting up to 100# & walking up to 14 mi. per day--pushing pallets & carts of materials --200#-to 2000#- thru out the plant-!which I cannot do!! I feel I am about -95%-unable to work as I can only do a 2 min. walk without severe pain- & cannot sit upright in a chair without severe pain for more than 15-20 min.---how can he rate only 25%- without doing a full detailed exam!-says nothing more can be done!
