Patient Testimonials

"The outpatient facility and nursing staff were top notch in terms of personalized care and attention. I totally trust Dr. Oberer and appreciate his confidence and expertise. I do wish I would have been able to speak to him after the procedure. He did speak to my spouse, but I would have liked to review the surgery with him."

"Couldn't ask for better care! My husband has been coming here since 1986. He's had 2 cervical tumors and numerous discs surgeries. He wouldn't go anywhere other place!"

- Bailey Mabry

"I only have great things to say about them. Dr. Bernard was great answered all question I had plus the questions my family had. I also have a PA there too. Shamp is great. I had several questions.....she didn't rush me like most docs do. She even walked us to the next place we were suppose to go. Everyone's experience is different but everyone at the Baldwin office was great to me. From the people at the front desk to the person that set up my appt. thank you for everything."

"Seen by and ultimately operated on by Dr. Smith. I cannot say enough good about every facet of the experience. I started off at another well-known orthopedic practice, had a bad experience and poor advice. So very glad I had a physician friend recommend Dr. Smith and his practice and glad to be back to the old me."
- Thomas Brasse


"The doctor (Bernard) my wife has been seeing is excellent and very very caring. The staff at the facility (Baldwin Ave) is above and beyond excellent. The nurses are fabulous and so very understanding and kind. The medical staff and assistants are the best you could ask for. I've unfortunately been transferred to another surgeon due to the current issue and if he is anything close to what I've experienced so far I will not be unhappy. Wonderful place."
- Jason Thompson

"I cannot say enough about the care I received from Dr. Mark Smith and all of his staff! I was seen for a significantly large herniated cervical disc that I had been struggling with for 6 weeks and was scheduled for a discectomy the very next day thanks to a cancellation. My symptom relief was immediate! I’m so very thankful for his professionalism, honesty and expertise!"

"Dr. Wait and Dr. Abby take such amazing care of my daughter. Dr. Wait is an amazing surgeon."
- Nicey Jackson

"I had to have a brain tumor removed. I was scared, family lives out of town, and the staff and surgeons were absolutely incredible.
Answered parent's questions via FaceTime, took mom's calls in the middle of the night when there were more questions, follow up was impeccable, and happy to say one year later I am still all clear. This group of amazing surgeons, nurses, and staff took what was an incredibly scary time go so smooth that it is hard to believe it was brain surgery! Trust that you always have a choice, and choose them!"

"My wife had a Chiari Decompression done by Dr. Dyer and it was an absolute success! She still has some nerve damage from Chiari symptoms over the years but almost all of her day to day symptoms have been fixed. Her intracranial pressure is higher than normal so after the patch of her dura would not seal 100%, Dr. Jernigan did a shunt. The procedure was flawless and we are forever grateful for the great team work with this group. From the surgeries to the aftercare, we couldn't have been any happier we made the decision to go with this team. Jennifer, our PA at Piedmont Regional was amazing caring for my wife after her surgery. The nurses have been awesome during her wound checks and anytime we call for any questions. We will now start a new chapter in our lives healthy and stronger then ever thanks to Dr. Dyer and Dr. Jernigan."
