Been here several times to several physicians and now for rehab..wonderful facility


I truly believe Dr. Daryl Sybert is the finest physician around here. He always makes me feel valued and that he truly cares about my well-being. I trust his knowledge implicitly and value his opinions and medical expertise.


Wonderful experience, if having back surgery could be wonderful! I am so happy I was able to come to OrthoNeuro and be seen by Dr. Sybert and Donnie Miller. Both of you were great, you actually gave me my life back. Everyone was so professional before and after my surgery. I would recommend you to anyone that needed surgery. I want to thank Donnie for calming me down when I felt so bad the weeks before surgery. Thank you to everyone who was involved in my surgery.


i was very pleased with my experience at this facility


Good Morning,

Sorry this has taken so long to get back to you.
You have a number of outstanding people who cared for me and I’m sure others as well. This was my second visit with Dr Sybert a professional and very interesting person with a great sense of humor. Donnie, Dr Sybert’s PA is another quality person.

Ann and Greg from the per-surg team calming and professional got me ready for surgery. I have a strong startle reflex for years in the service, Ann and Greg kept up a light conversation keeping me occupied and calm. They also prepared me for my meeting with Melissa the Nurse Anesthetist, what an outstanding person. I mentioned my issues (PTSD) which she already knew. She came very close to me, eye to eye and outlined her plan of attack in a peaceful manner, assuring me there would be nothing to startle and she would be with me throughout. As she put me under I was aware of each step with her calm voice. Nothing but outstanding.

The Nurses and Tech, especially the one in the purple scrubs, took such great care of me, pleasant with humor even during my lack of control, they did not allow me to become embarrassed.

Thank you all for the wonderful care you provided for me, your beyond wonderful.

My Doctor Sybert was very knowledgeable and helped me and my husband understand what’s happening with his broken back. He explained everything without making us feel dumb. He very calm and nice and helped us understand everything. The front desk girl was so nice to us which made us feel welcome.


Visit with Dr. Sybert went well though we were disappointed she was not eligible for the procedure we were hoping to schedule.


I love everything about Ortho Neuro. I have never before observed such comprehensive compassionate and excellent medical care.




Dr. Sybert was very easy to talk with and he really listened to what I was saying. He gave me hope that there is a treatment that will help me.


Dr Sybert was one of the best doctors I have ever had! He took the time to explain my condition and answered all my questions. I would recommend him to everone I know! ………….Ray A.
