What Patients are Saying About Dr. Douglas W. Laske, MD

“At every step of the way, from the neurologist’s office to the ETC to my operation and inpatient stay, I was treated with compassion and empathy. I always felt I had chosen the right place for my care.”

— Melissa

“After spinal surgery, I was able to do what I’ve wanted to do for 30 years – hike in the Himalayas!”

— Linda

“When I woke up [from surgery], I got out of bed and used the walker right away, and walked up and down the floor three times. A nurse asked why I was crying – I told her it was happy tears. I had instant relief from the unbearable pain that had gone up and down my legs, my whole back. I have since told three people who are having similar pain to have the surgery – you don’t have to live like that. Get relief now!”

— Edwin
