Dr. Joseph was the only surgeon I would allow to operate on me as his expertise and years of both simple and complex surgery allowed me to be back to work and my normal routine, pain-free within 4 weeks.
I have to say that this surgery saved my life. After 21 back surgery's, I am out of pain, have total movement and strength in my left leg, and I am walking.
I found Dr. Sam very professional, and his caring attitude displayed to be more personal and genuine than any of the literally dozens of neurosurgeons we engaged over the past 30 years of my life. I highly recommend Dr. Sam and his team for any back/neck surgery needed. He is definitely worth the drive or flight.
I truly don’t know what I would have done if I had not found Dr. Joseph. He was so kind and treated me with respect and compassion. He knew the pain I was in and how tired I was physically, mentally, and emotionally.
In my opinion, Dr. Joseph is an excellent surgeon. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing back surgery. He is very easy to talk with and will patiently explain procedures and answer any questions you might have. I don’t think you could find a better doctor.
I thank Dr. Joseph and his entire staff for all of their help, from pre-surgery paperwork to post surgery rehab, and my appointments to be sure there were no infections or other possible problems.
I am quite certain that the professional quality of training on the part of Dr. Joseph and his surgical staff, the cutting-edge surgical equipment used, and the kind quality care on the part of the hospital staff contributed to my return to a normal life.
I am delighted to say that I have MY LIFE back. I can now do things with my children I have never been able to. I don’t wake up and not want to get out of bed. Dr. Joseph is a brilliant doctor and in 11 hours of surgery and rehabilitation, he has changed my life for the better.
I felt as if I were a hot potato being passed around until Dr. Joseph happened into my life. His positive attitude, confident demeanor and the fact that he listens to you is something that you generally don’t find with a lot of surgeons.
Before my procedure with Dr. Joseph I was always in constant pain in my lower back area and I really couldn't do any outdoor activity with my family couldn't work out couldn't do anything even sleep but now since I had the procedure I haven't had any back pain
For the first time in years, even though I was sore, I had no back pain. I’ve continued to improve, my walking is 100% better, and I still have no back pain at all after 4 months. Thanks to Dr. Joseph and his wonderful staff for giving me a pain-free life.
I am back playing water polo at the highest level. My leg pain is gone. I have not tripped or face-planted since my surgery -my foot-drop is gone. I can tie my shoes, sit without pain, rake leaves, exit my car, sleep in a bed, and shop…all pain-free.
Before I came to see Dr. Joseph on April 20, 2010, I had just about given up hope. My back and neck pain had become almost unbearable and I was to the point where I was losing use of my hands and legs. If it weren’t for Dr. Joseph, my fear of becoming “a talking head” would have become a reality. I can’t thank you enough!!!
For the first time in almost 30 years, I can live without my focus being on pain. I’m taking NO prescription pain medication! Dr. Joseph has changed my life. I will be forever grateful to him.
Dr. Joseph is truly a God sent. From the beginning, I felt good about him. When he came in to talk to me and my husband he talked to us NOT at us.
