How likely are you to recommend Dr. Minchew?

(Select your rating)
Dr Minchew was thorough and very informative when I first met him. His staff was always there to help when I called the office. Dr Minchew did 9 hours of surgery on my back. I am so pleased with the results. Surgery was supposedly to be 3 to 5 hours. My husband was kept well informed during the 9 hours. Within 6 weeks I was able to swim laps at my community pool. For the first time in many years I had no pain. As far as I am concerned I see no reason to ever go to any other Dr than Dr Minchew for spinal problems.
