Chris Ozor – Cervical Spinal Fusion Surgery

Image of Chris OzorWhen I told my friends that I will be undergoing a spinal fusion surgery, their first question was “where?”  I responded “OSC (Orthopaedic & Spine Center) at 250 Nat Turner BLVD”.  They would say, “Chris, we hope that you have Dr. Jeffrey Carlson as your surgeon. Carlson is more popular than Ferrarius – the Sicilian.”

From his direct and focused gaze to his soothing voice, you can tell you are in good hands when Dr. Carlson is your physician. The team of doctors who worked on me did a fantastic job, also. I remember Dr. Raj. I could hear his voice calling my name, encouraging me to be strong that it soon shall be over. The nurses at Mary Immaculate were exceptional in their professionalism and love of their job.

The first week after the surgery was the most challenging. My surgery went well, thanks to the skills of Dr. Carlson. My good friend, Patrese Langford, was phenomenal in her care of me. She was full of human kindness. She made sure all my medications were filled and dispensed. She put herself on a four-hour regular Alarm notification to ensure I’ve taken my medicine and lying in bed the right way. Oh my goodness, I can go on and on.

From the bottom of my heart I thank my personal physician, Paul Hiotellis, for referring me to Dr. Carlson. Today I am stronger than I was prior to having the surgery. I’ll recommend any of the mentioned doctors, with Dr. Carlson in front of the line.
