Exceptional surgeon

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.

She is a lifesaver. She spent more time and effort than any other doctor I've ever had. She is very good at explaining things and takes the time to make sure you get it.
