I was exceptionally impressed with Dr. Gantwerker's in depth knowledge, bedside manner, ability to quickly relate to me as a patient and person. I look forward to having him treat me and direct my spinal treatment. I highly recommend him to anyone with back problems..

Dr. Gantwerker performed Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion Cervical 3-4, Posterior Cervical Laminoplasty Cervical 3-5 on 18 June 2020. As with all surgeries there is an element of danger and complications. During my office visit with Dr Gantwerker prior to the surgery everything was explained in detail i.e., risk/reward issues and post-op expected effects. Dr Gantwerker gave me the confidence needed to believe this surgery would be totally successful. I can only give you 5 stars but my wife's and my thanks to you are worth at least another 5 stars.

Dr. Gantwerker is always a great, caring doctor. I would have liked our meeting to be face to face but we are dealing with this virus and this is all we could do.

I was very happy with Dr. Gantwerker. He recognized my situation and did not dismiss it as something that would go away shortly without some medical attention. Thank you.
