Was highly impressed with Dr. Bonfield's attention to details and explanation of my condition based on comparative X-Rays and MRI. I went there with little hope, in debilitating pain, a poor quality of life, yet a lot of Faith. Although I am high risk, my case is complex , and statistics may not be in my favor, his expertise and advice offered me an updated base of knowledge and added hope where there was none. I left with action items and necessary criteria to meet in order for him to perform an Elective Spinal Surgery to correct a FBSS from 2/21/17. Most definitely a Positive Experience, more than that, a blessing and an answer to my prayers.
