Dr Todd is the best spine surgeon around and I live in Kentucky I would recommend him to anyone he’s done two of my back surgeries I’d put him against any neuro surgeon in the united States


Entire staff was friendly nursing staff was very good. Extremely satisfied with the care I received.


I arrived early and was taken early. Always a plus.


Dr. Todd understands pain. It’s like I’m too young to experience pain and I just get tossed aside.

Dr. Todd and his staff knows accidents destroy a human body and it doesn’t matter the age or how fit the person is or what they eat.

I don’t cry from frustration dealing with this office and trying to navigate real life coming back from a horrific and debilitating and crippling injury.


I also had an appointment with Dr Napolitano; the ratings of 5 apply to him also.


I am so grateful that Dr Todd was able to help me with all of my Sciatica and back pain which I have endured for over 10 yrs. Thank you so much!


This is the best place to get help thank you


Dr. Todd and all staff including the hospital staff was awesome!! One of the best experiences I had in all my years of deal with Drs.


The dr advised me that not much could be done with the condition of my spine.. gave me advice NOT to have anyone mess with operating on it.. may make matters worse. I felt all along that this would be the best answer and he totally confirmed it…


I can’t thank you enough. My condition was extremely difficult and Dr. TODD WAS SO nice and helpful.


Dr Todd and his staff were wonderful! I have recommended Ortho Neuro to anyone who complains of back pain. Thank you so much for improving my quality of life!!


I’ve only been once to Dr. Todd. Great doctor so far, but we’re just now in the process of figuring things out so I don’t have answers yet. That’s the only reason I didn’t give all excellence’s on my survey.
