My Experience was ok he didn’t show me what was on my X-rays or My MRI about my lower back. I had to see them on a computer from a friend. From what I saw is bad. And I’ve been in so much pain it’s hard to even sit or lay down in bed. Let alone sleep yes I have other appointment on March 26 th but what about now?

I have been living with chronic back pain for years and have had every treatment done under the sun besides surgery. I even had to give up my career. Not one doctor took my pain and suffering serious. My first consultation with Dr. Hermenau made me feel like there is hope to live a pain free life. He really seemed to care that I have been in pain for so long and and explained what was causing my pain and how it could be fixed. Im so happy I found him.

Great. Front office staff. Great back office staff. Doctor explained things to me thoroughly. What I could expect and not to expect. Decided to go for surgery. Can't wait to hopefully get relief from the pain and numbness that is making my life pretty difficult.

My experience with Dr Hermenau was beyond unbelievable. He was very precise, explanatory and professional. He took the time to show and explain to me the ex-rays and the solution to the problem. I am overly grateful for him, his staff and his facility. He continues to check on my progress even after my surgery to make sure I'm OK. Wow.. top notch..take that Phoenix Thank you, Yuma's own Desert Spine Institute.
