Have you seen Dr. Jeffrey Tharp?
Great Surgeon, love love love him!!
Posted on January 5th, 2017
Dr Tharp is a great surgeon, I have been seeing him for last 19 years, he has done all my surgeries. At the age of the 17 years old I broke the vertebrae at L 3 &L 4. He did everything he could so I didn't have to have surgery. He never wanted to do surgery on me because of my age, it was his last resort. I have had 2 spinal fusions in the same place L 3 & L 4, an total of 5 or 6 surgeries in all. Because of the surgeries instead of getting better my back has gotten worse, no fault of Dr. Tharp's, it a risk you take when have a major surgery & genetics play a role in also. In the next 2 weeks I'll be going in for another surgery to replace my spinal cord stimulator battery and he's the only surgeon for the job. I trust him with my life. Great Surgeon awesome person in all, you will always be in great hands with Dr. Tharp.

Did my surgery in 2012. I was very unhappy w/ him. He is very condescending, egotistical . . . best to look elsewhere.

Dr.Tharp was who I went to for a second opinion. I am so thankful I had him do my surgery and not the first Dr. who barely gave me the time of day. Dr.Tharp is an excellent surgeon. He explained everything thoroughly. I have my life back again after my surgery and I am grateful to him.

Dr. Tharp is extremely thorough when gathering history to make his diagnosis and treatment plans. I trust him with my life and will continue to have him treat any of my back or neck issues.

Don't go there if you don't want surgery.

I went to Dr. Tharp after seeing a Chiropractor who just made my problems worse. Dr. Tharp ran expensive and painful tests, but I'm sure he had already decided to do surgery the day I walked in. I'm in pain, but I can function normally during the daytime once I've moved around a bit. I'm not ready for risky surgery or a possible 6 months of recovery time. His suggestion for pain was over the counter meds which would be life threatening for me if I took them or nothing at all for pain. No physical therapy offered, just surgery. I refused, but the office kept calling to attempt to schedule the surgery...they are very persistent. It's about making money, not what's good for the patient! If you want surgery, it's an easy way to get it! If you're not ready, don't bother!
