Awesome Doctor, Surgeon and Lady

Dr. French is top-notch in my book. I saw her for a 2nd opinion for upper back (cervical fusion) surgery on 5 disks in 2004. I had one previous surgery by and Orthopedic surgeon for a herniated cervical disk in 1986 and that was a very bad experience with more pain after surgery than before surgery. So I was very cautious about having another surgery. I was impressed with her staff; they were friendly, kind and compassionate. Dr. French is extremely intelligent, but down-to-earth without a drop of arrogance. Yes, the wait in her office may be more than 10-15 minutes on occasion only because she treats each patient as an individual and doesn't run patients through her office like a car wash. She made sure that all my questions were answered and explained my MRI and surgical and pain relief options. Needless to say she was my choice for surgery and I am very happy with the outcome. Eleven years later, I have severe lower back and leg pain that is beyond my Primary Care Physician. So I made an appointment with Dr. French without hesitation. My first appointment had to be rescheduled because she was called to do an emergency surgery at Fairfax Hospital. She made her apologies before she left the office and her staff rescheduled my appointment for the next day. If i do need lower back surgery, there is no question that Dr. French will be the only surgeon for me.
