J.A. Faulkner, Jr. – Lumbar Spine Surgery

Image of JA Faulkner in the cockpit of an airplaneIn April of 2018, I began experiencing severe pain in my lower back.  I went to see Dr. Jeffrey R. Carlson on 18 May 2018, after having seen another physician, who was more interested in satisfying the needs of the insurance company rather than taking care of my needs as a patient.

Dr. Carlson performed a through examination, reviewed my MRI, and assessed that the only treatment/cure for my ruptured disc was surgery.  Dr. Carlson was extremely caring as was evidenced during my initial office visit.  There was no rush to have me in and out within 15 minutes.  He made me feel like I was his only patient to be seen that day.  Surgery was immediately scheduled.

The surgery was successful and gave me immediate relief from pain.  His office staff and surgery team were very friendly, caring and efficiently handled all the activities associated with my medical care.  Follow up care has been excellent.
