Dr Eichenseer is an absolute wonderful neurosurgeon. I had seen another neurosurgeon before I seen him and was going to be referred off to a different neurosurgeon because my Cervical (neck) case was to complicated, so I was able to get into see within 3 days of calling his office and my surgery was scheduled within 6 days of seeing him because he new I needed surgery ASAP.
He was very thorough, kind, and and took the time to answer all my questions.
The day after the surgery I had feeling back in my fingertips, and 4 days after the surgery I had feeling back in both hands and haven’t had to wear the arm brace that I have wore for 2 years.
I would highly recommended Dr Eichenseer to anyone that is thinking about spinal surgery.
