I have come back to Dr. Fogel after a four level fusion in 2011. Together, we are developing a course of action to address a problem which involves continuing degradation of my lumbar spine due to arthritis and age.

Dr. Fogel has been an excellent Surgeon. From my very first visit, I have never felt rushed with a resolution and out the door. He takes his time to listen to your complaints. He has always reviewed your file or records prior to your visit. He goes over results of xrays or scans and gives you his recommendation. He has never pushed me into making a decision on any procedure right then and there. He has always explained the risk.

Great practitioner. Real concern for patient

Spine is healing well and we are thrilled! My vertebrae had become disconnected at T11 and the spine above the waist was leaning over about 35°. I was limited to lying in bed or sitting in my computer chair as my back would spasm if I tried to walk anywhere. We had gone to 2 surgeons who both refused to do any surgery as cutting through the muscles in the back to correct the problem would result in infections, slow healing and probably my death.

Within 5 minutes of my first appointment with Dr. Fogel, he told me he could fix it! I had him repeat the statement as I couldn't believe it. My spine was straightened in July 2013 in 11 hours of surgery on 2 different days -- with only 11 one inch incisions and no cut muscles. The new spacers gave me back 5 inches in height and relieved any pressure on my leg nerves. I healed well and after 5 days of rehab came home walking and standing straight for the first time in 3 years!

In my opinion, no one should have back surgery without first consulting with Dr. Fogel.

Thank you for always being so patient and listening to me. You make me feel that I am your only patient. After two back surgeries and possibly a third on the horizon, I wouldn't trust anyone else with my back.

I am recovering from back surgery (about a month post surgery). It is too soon to know if the surgery fixed my medical issue but I am very pleased with the way Dr. Fogel treated me as a person and as a patient while in the hospital. My daughter called Dr. Fogel the day after my surgery to let him know that the hospital nurses were not responding to my complaints of severe pain. Dr. Fogel came to the hospital within 30 minutes of her phone call, examined me, and immediately contacted the head nurse to make sure my pain complaint was taken care of right away and on a regular basis. This caring and quick response is not something I have ever received from a doctor before, so I and my family were certainly impressed with the way Dr. Fogel treated me in the hospital. I would recommend Dr. Fogel to anyone out there who is suffering from back pain. He is a different kind of doctor - he cares.

I was very impressed with the friendly staff and the timely manor in which x-rays and preliminary exam went. Then I moved into the hygentist's chair and experienced excurciating pain as she picked away at my teeth. NEVER have I had this bad of an experience in the hygentist chair in my life. I am very disappointed since I have moved from out of state and it is impossible to find service comparable to what I have been used to for the past 20 years. I had hoped to speak highly of this visit, but unfortunately I left with a VERY sore mouth and doubt in my mind that I may need to look for a new dentist.
