How likely are you to recommend Dr. Ratzker?

(Select your rating)
Dr. Paul Ratzker was wonderful. My first initial visit with him was honest. He answered all of my questions and step-by-step, he told me the cause of my pain, the procedure he suggested regarding C4-C5-C6-C7, the recovery time and my movement and pain probability after the surgery. Well after my consultation, I decided to move forward with the surgery, and all I can say is that he was true to his words of expertise. My recovery was just as he stated (of course I did the things I was supposed to during recovery, and he complimented me because patients don't always do what the doctor say) but my recovery was great, I am no longer in pain and my movement is at 95% and still improving. I recommend Dr. Ratzker to anyone who is suffering from pain or conteplating surgery. He is my Neurosurgeon forever!
