Mrs,

Dr. Curtin gave me as much time as I needed for answering questions and explaining my condition and procedures. He did not push for me to have surgery (although I probably should have had it four years prior to having very extensive back surgery). I can not say enough about how well I was treated and cared for by Dr. Curtin and his most capable staff. My surgery was an 8 hour operation and I am still amazed at his surgical ability , knowledge and his kindness and care.

Dr. Curtin diagnosed and performed the necessary surgery (rods and plate from C-4 to T-4 and follow up was excellent. Very honest with me about a current condition that every Physical Therapist I've been to since my last visit said is true. He said surgery will not help my condition and they agreed. Not a Doctor that will cut for no reason. HIGHLY recommend Dr. Curtin to anyone!!
