Dr. David is an excellent neurosurgeon.

Dr. David is an excellent neurosurgeon. He saved my life when I broke my neck in 2015 and when I hurt my back a few years later, he fixed my back so I was no longer in pain. But most importantly, he cares about me as a person and is willing to go above and beyond to be helpful. He is an amazing man and a brilliant doctor. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Wells-Roth is a great surgeon.

Dr. Wells-Roth is a great surgeon. I had a big back surgery. He did an excellent job. He explained everything well and I was always able to get in touch with him after surgery if I had any questions or worries. The surgery made me a new person and help me get back to life. Dr. Wells-Roth is also very personable and his staff and team are outstanding. I would highly recommend Dr. Wells-Roth.
