Dr. Befelor and Bobbi Jo, and the rest of the staff always do a wonderful job ! At this point, they almost seem like Family. If you have any neurological issues, I would highly recommend them!

I had deslt with multiple herniations in my cervical spine for over 5 years. I got a second opinion from Dr Jobe and I knew he was the right surgeon for me. He was attentive & answered all my questions. He is compassionate, experienced and knowledgeable. Instead of a cage and plates to perform the fusion he used zero profile spacers. The results were completely amazing. Quick recovery, no loss of range of motion and I am back to doing the things that I love that I had not been able to do for years prior without nerve pain. I will and do recommend Dr Jobe to anyone who is looking to explore spinal surgery.

Our son recently had back surgery for a herniated disc by Dr. Shorter. Was impressed with his professionalism and the quick recovery time. Thank you so much!

Discussion regarding my Canal Stenosis @ L4-5. Dr. Befeler was very thorough in his diagnosis of my discomfort and in the end highly suggested I continue with my injections every 11/2-2 years and not have surgery!


Just past my one year anniversary of my surgery… I went from unbearable pain to being able to move and continue my life… pain free.. Thanks to all the staff at Brain2Spine Institute for all their care and treatment and to Dr. STENGAL for his skills and caring

This man is a miracle worker!! I thank God every day that he was able to save my life. I had a massive tumor on my brain and with out Dr. Stengel I would not be here today.. 7 years later , I have definitely defied all odds and beat everything that came my way. With this wonderful man and his staff I’d face it all over again if I’d too. Thank you Dr. Stengel, Erica and Bobbi for giving me hope and saving my life. I will be forever greatful

Dr. Shorter is nothing less than amazing.. Had 2 office visits, then surgery on L4-L5. FYI: I talked with a very reputable surgeon 22 years ago and he turned me down after 45 minutes of explaining why it couldn’t be done. Because of many other injuries to my back. Surgery went very easy with Dr. Shorter. I never took pain meds. Just got back from my 4 week check up and Dr. Shorter said everything was coming along perfectly… I’d actually rate him as off the scale of being Absolutely Great. 90 % or more of my lower back pain is gone already. No more Sciatica..

After two office sessions with Dr. Befeler, we decided that surgery was the best option for getting relief from leg pain caused by disc problems in my lower back. Dr. Befeler explained the procedure in great detail both in his office and again the morning of the surgery. The surgery was two weeks ago today, and I have been pain free since leaving the surgery center. Better yet, I experienced no pain from the surgery itself and have not had to take any type (prescribed or over-the-counter) medication since the operation. I would certainly recommend Dr. Befeler to anyone experiencing any kind of back pain or other back related issues.

I want to start by saying the office staff of NATB is litrerally the greatest staff i have ever experienced. It is to see that they love their jobs and truly enjoy working there and it shows by the way they treat their patients. I am terrible with names so i apologize for not giving everyone’s name individually. Bobbi and Carmen stand out to me because i have so many interactions with the two of them, but the entire staff is amazing. What can i tell you about Dr Jobe? He is the greatest Dr i have ever known, skills, demeanor, and his “bedside” manner is absolutely amazing. When i talk about Dr Kirk Jobe to other people and other medical professionals the same thing is always said, he is an amazing surgeon. I have never witnessed this about any doctor and i have seen many. He takes his time and reviews every detail and explains everything to you in way that isn’t condescending or “talking down to you”. He does his homework and is fully prepared to operate. He is always fully prepared and he gives his patients his full and complete best skills each and every procedure. When other surgeons told me there is nothing they can do its a hard pill to swallow. I came to Dr Jobe some 9yrs ago. I was paralyzed from the waist down because of my spinal stenosis. Dr Jobe performed emergency neck surgery (i came thru the ER) and i was literally walking the next day. I have had a total of 4 procedures done by Dr Kirk Jobe. He continues to give me a fighting chance when others said they can’t. Once again, he is litrerally the greatest surgeon i know, his staff is a reflection of him and his great work. I can’t speak for him but i feel that he is the greatest because all of his staff are so good at their jobs that this allows him to be fully prepared for the amazing and life changing work he does. From the time you walk into that office for your 1st consult to the end of your recovery the staff and surgeons will be with you along the way. I have so many great things to say about neurological associates of Tampa bay, but the best thing i can say and attest to is this, everyone in that office will have your back from the beginning all the way to finish. Thank you Dr Jobe, thank you Carmen, thank you Bobbi and thank you to the one’s who names i can’t recall. Thank you for giving another chance to living a great life! You make this a real possibility. Sincerely, the guy who once was paralyzed. You guys are literally the greatest!!!!

The staff are outstanding! Everyone I came in contact with prior to my appointment, during my appointment and after were very polite and caring. Dr. Befeler was amazing too! I have been in pain for awhile now and he really took the time to listen to me and explain things to me and work with me for next steps. Thank you Dr. Befeler and team.

Dr. Befeler is amazing. He takes time to answer any questions or concerns that we had. I wouldn’t trust anyone else to do my surgery. Love the office staff as well. Everyone is very helpful.
