Due congential issues and a trama I have had to have both Cervical and Lumbar Spine surgeries performed for Dr. Wallenfriedman. She is not quick to cut, she does her homework and if that means that you needs more tests then she will order them or if she wants you get another opinion say at the Mayo Clinic she will send you there. I owe her my ability to walk. In my opinion, she is the best.
Very satisfied with my experience; she made me feel calm and relaxed in the face of delicate spine surgery. She's driven and dedicated to her work and gets the job done, no matter how difficult the barriers are.
