Dr. Stephens is wonderful. I have recommended him to friends and family members already
Patient | September 13, 2018
I am extremely pleased with the results of my surgery. I have no pain from the sciatic nerve in my leg and feel better than I have in years. I have given the doctors name to several people and tell them how well I have been treated

Had no reason for making us wait 1 hour before going into hallway to summon nurse.
Patient | July 16, 2018
I waited 50 minutes to see the doctor after I was put in an exam room. This was excessive. My time is important also.
Patient | June 25, 2018
I have and would recommend Dr. Stephens to any I felt could use his expertise.
Patient | May 28, 2018
I was extremely lucky to have been given an appointment with Dr. Stephens. He brought my spine back to a normal look after a surgeon in my hometown had crippled me . This was a re-do. from 2015.
Patient | April 30, 2018
Dr. Stephen's was excellent. I appreciated that it bothered him when finding the source of my pain caused me pain. He was very clear in explaining my injury, referring me for treatment, and explaining what that treatment would be. He respected that I wanted to minimize the amount of medication I would take, especially long-term, even as I needed to do something to be functional in the short-term. And, I was blown away when I arrived at my referral and was told that he had been texting the other doctor to be sure that they both understood what all I had going on.
