Dr. Courtney is GREAT.
I am always seen quickly and Dr. Courtney and his staff always answer my questions thoroughly.
Solved my problem
Dr. Courtney is an awesome doctor. He's very caring and he's straight forward what needs to be done and makes sure you understand. I've been seeing him since 1997 and will never change doctors! Dr, Courtney also has an amazing staff. Heather and Lori are very sweet and knowledgeable of procedures that will be done.
He has been my doctor since 2001. I trust him completely with my care.
Love him and his team as always. They have always done what's best for me. I have been to several different back docs in the past and am so pleased that I chose him as the one to do my operation in Oct 2014. I wouldn't trust anyone else with something as important as my spine than Dr. Courtney and his team. Love you guys! And thanks for all your help today!
Dr. Courtney and Heather (his PA) are fabulous!!! They are kind, caring and very thorough. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
