Client Testimonials

Clients share their stories so you can hear first hand how the right spinal surgery has improved their lives and why they loved working with Second Opinion Spine’s Dr. Bomback and Dr. Kramer.

  • My local doctors did not notice…

    Patients travel from all over the world to be treated by these world-class doctors! I am one of thousands of their success stories. Some friends later told me that they thought I would end up in a wheel chair PRIOR to contacting Dr. Bomback. He carefully reviewed my MRI and determined that I had TWO cysts on my spine that were NOT SEEN by the radiologists in my local hospital which is labeled as a teaching hospital...again my local doctors did not "notice". Dr. Bomback EMPHATICALLY told me that surgery is reserved after conservative treatment fails. This attention to details resulted in me being able to go back to a FULL life and resume teaching. It is important to note that my phone calls were always answered personally and quickly by Dr. Bomback.

  • Since the fusion I have been pain free

    Since the fusion… suffice to say that I have been pain free ever since. In fact this past summer my son and I backpacked with 40 lbs each for 100 miles on the Wonderland Trail around the base of Mt Rainier! I have read the testimonials on your website and wish to add mine as well. Best regards.

  • The surgery was highly successful

    Just a brief note of thanks for the support you extended to my mother. The surgery… was highly successful and mother experienced great relief. She is fully ambulatory and self sufficient. I am very pleased with her progress and I am delighted to give you this very favorable report. Thank you again for your care, your concern and your fine work.

  • Straight-forward, honest and caring

    This letter is to thank you for enabling me to continue to act like an 18 year old (even though I am 65). Before contacting you I had severe and debilitating lower back pain for over five years. My fear of having “back surgery” caused me to try virtually every other possible remedy, including acupuncture in China. When the pain became greater than my fear of back surgery, my internist recommended I see you. Every contact I had with you was pleasant. You were straight-forward, honest and caring. It is now almost one year since the surgery... and I have resumed activities I never thought I would do again. Best regards.

  • Every doctor should be like you

    Dear Dr. Kramer, I would like to express my thanks to you and your staff for the wonderful treatment I received... I have nothing but praise for you and your staff... you are very fortunate. Perhaps it stems from the fact that you are a nice person. Every doctor should be like you; keep up the good work. Thank you again.

  • Your honesty kept me from having unnecessary back surgery

    Dear Dr. Bomback, I must thank you again for your patience in treating the stenosis and your acuity in recognizing the fact that it was not the cause of the severe pain. Your integrity and honesty kept me from having unnecessary back surgery and directed me to the hip surgery. How very grateful I am. My prayer for you is that you stay well and continue in a practice that is successful for you and your patients. Highest regards.

  • After forty nine years of pain…

    After forty nine years of pain from my tail bone I finally found a doctor that helped. I had seen several doctors over the years, went to physical therapy, had injections, you name it; I tried with no relief. I am now pain free for the first time in all these years. I feel wonderful. I can sit down. That sounds like nothing to most people but for me it is something that has caused me pain all my life. NOT ANY MORE. Thank you Dr. Bomback. Job well done!!!!

  • High level of care, exceptional “customer service” and superb skill…

    I am so consistently extremely impressed Dr. Kramer; I just love everything about you and your stellar group in its entirety. Never have I found such a high level of care, exceptional “customer” service and superb skill from each and every staff member in any group that I’ve ever worked with.

    I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for being so kind and patient with me. Your staff is so helpful and considerate. After being in pain every day for so long, I finally see a light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you so much; may God bless you and your staff.

  • Thank you for giving me my life back

    How do I even begin to thank you for giving me my life back? Words seem so inadequate. After eight years of horrible pain I am once again excited to begin every day. I can’t fit enough in. It’s just so wonderful to go to the gym, run around shopping and meet with friends – LIVE! I live to live everyday to the fullest! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

  • Warmth and genuine concern

    I find it difficult to express in words, the kindness, graciousness, and just plain pleasantness I have experienced since the initial call to the office. The very first call I made was met with such warmth and genuine concern that was such a refreshing introduction to what was to come. I would like to share with the doctor and all of his staff just how grateful, thankful and thoroughly comforted I have been with their caring professionalism.
