Dr. Small has been my spine surgeon since early 2005. Dr. Small has such a way of putting a patient at ease because of his soft-spoken tone and wonderful personality. After surgery, Dr. Small was right there to explain the whole procedure, the fusion he performed on levels L-2 to S-1, and how he repaired and redid the fusion. I knew right then and there that Dr. Small would be my surgeon for life. His professional and personal persona showed his caring was very real. I never met a doctor who cared more for their patients than Dr. Small. His professional team, both staff and assistants, are exceptional as well. They all work together to help you with whatever your needs are. I would highly recommend the entire practice to anyone with spinal needs. Dr. Small is the best!
