Words from our patients

"I would strongly recommend Dr. Jobe and his wonderful staff to anyone needing back surgery...He is a great doctor, who is kind and caring. That find..."


Its almost by a miracle that I found out I had an unruptured brain aneurysm . The other part of the story is by chance of a wonderful doctor named Dr. Jobe was on call that same night . Dr. Jobe is a very pleasant minded person , talks to you and not at you . I did not hesitate after my initial visit after the hospital as to who was going to perform a craniotomy clipping surgery . The miracle of being able to write this review is a testament to it all . Thank you Dr. Jobe ..

Dr. Shorter is quite friendly and knowledgeable. He thoroughly reviewed my extensive case history, and though surgery was not the answer for my case made appropriate recommendations. it was a very pleasant visit for my wife and I.

I've known Dr. Stengel since he performed surgery on my neck in the early 2000's. About a year ago I began suffering from neuropathic pain radiating from the left side of my neck on down my left shoulder. The first person I thought of to resolve the issue was Dr. Stengel. He did not make a 100% guaranteed promise, but said that he was very confident he could help me. A couple of months later, I woke up post-surgery with all of the symptoms gone - completely gone! He and his surgery team and office staff treated me with respect and kindness from my first office visit until my last. Three months have passed, and I remain pain-free. Thanks, Dr. Stengel, to you, and your medical and office staffs!

I was referred to Dr. Shorter by my oncologist after an MRI revealed a metastatic tumor on my left occipital lobe. He did an impressive job of explaining the surgery procedure involved, using the MRI images and a short video of an actual surgery. My wife and I felt confident in him from the start, and the surgery went extremely well. During the followup visit 3 weeks later, we got to watch the video of my own surgery while he explained what was done, and were impressed once again. On top of his obvious ability as a surgeon, we think he's a really good guy! Kudos also to the staff at the office. A great group.

I'd like you [Dr. Jobe] to know how grateful I am for your skill in removing my tumor and saving my sense of smell. I was apprehensive about the surgery, but now all is well and my sense of smell is as keen as well. Thank you again!
