Very impressed with Dr. Harper. Resumption of my stretching routine had resolved the radiating pain I experienced while traveling out-of-town so no immediate need for pain treatment. But Dr. Harper very carefully went over my lumbar condition using the MRI images previously ordered by Dr. Wendt and correlating them with a plastic model of a spine. Also clearly discussed progressive treatment options if the pain returned.

Wow! My experience at Dr. Patrick Harper's office was so good. Started with the receptionist (she gets a 10), then the nurse (Definitely a 10) and then Dr. Harper and "Mo". Dr. Harper went above and beyond. He knew ALL the details of my 17-year chronic pain battle and was a very good listener. He and Mo made me very comfortable and secure with our decisions going forward. They receive a 10 as well.I need to let you know I rarely give a 10 because there's always room for improvement but this notch. Thank you for being so helpful, so kind, so caring.
