“Dr. Hicks is very thorough and tries to find every way to help you before resorting to surgery. When surgery is necessary, and I've had Dr. Hicks perform two on my spine, each time it has been done to perfection, with no pain related to the surgery. He follows up with some visits while you are in recovery and before discharge and is readily available for any follow-up questions you may have. Could not recommend an MD/Surgeon more highly!”

“Dr. Hicks is a great doctor. He was willing to take the time to discuss any questions or concerns I had. He explained what had happened and what to expect during the healing process. He was prompt, and I did not have to spend time waiting, like you can in some offices. I would return to Dr. Hicks for any other spine issues and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. I know several people who he has preformed surgery on and they have nothing but GREAT things to say about Dr. Hicks as well.”
