April M.

Dr. Deal is fantastic! I was referred to him after an MRI indicated a herniated disc in my C5/C6 area and non-surgical procedures failed to alleviate the pain that radiated down my right arm.

During our first visit, he was patient enough to walk me through my options, his recommendation (Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion), and the specifics of what all of that entailed… and he did it in a way that was easy to understand! It’s obvious that he is thoughtful in his practice and genuinely cares about his patients. Though he was patient enough to answer all of my questions during that visit, I think he realized I was anxious about the procedure and he personally returned a message with some additional questions I had left for his care coordinator. I thought that was pretty amazing and he has demonstrated that patience and commitment to my care in the post-op recovery visits as well.

I underwent the ACDF surgery in March 2016 and had immediate pain relief. I’m so grateful for Dr. Deal’s care and would highly recommend him to anyone in need of an orthopedic spine surgeon!
