I cannot thank Dr. Christopher Neubuerger enough for his brilliant surgery on my back. In 45 years I have not been this pain free. If you want no nonsense brilliance, Dr. Christopher Neubuerger is your surgeon. His staff is pretty cool too (Tracie)!

Healthgrades Review

They don't come more experienced than Dr O'Neill. Yet he retains a humility that is difficult to find in many doctors, much less an expert at the top of his specialty. He explains things well and remembers the niceties that engender the trust of his patients.
