I have been a patient of Dr. Lovell since 2003. My respect for him as a neurosurgeon, a veteran & person, has no bounds. I genuinely believes he cares for me personally & I trust him completely. So grateful to have found him so many years ago.

Patient of Dr Lovell

I've had back surgery by dr Lovell and I WD let him do it again. I never had a pain I came outta recovery and started walking. No therapy either. He just fixed the nerves in my right hand. It's feeling better. I recommend him to my family and friends he is the very best. I love how he takes time and explain things to me. I love my dr so much. He's good to me. Wasn't for him and god's grace I just don't know. Thanks Dr

Dr Lovell is an excellent surgeon with a genuine love for his patients. He performed a 3 level cervical fusion and it was a complete success. I would never go to any other physician.
