it was my first interaction with Dr. Sales. He was a great listener and explained my back issues in my quest for a professional opinion before going under the knife in September. Dr. Sales promptly ordered an MRI for my neck si he can assess my neck issues with a more recent MRI. I am happy to be working with the doctor on my next steps with my neck, or back post surgery.

Dr. Sales was recommended by my primary care physician. The entire team is great. I have been a patient for 3 years and have had 2 surgeries. I've had good experiences with both and now their helping me with a new issue.

Dr. Sales and team made my life so much better. I was given 3 options and I was the one to decide which would suit my situation best. I’m pleased to say Dr Sales and team would be my first choice for any back problems. Matter of fact my daughter will be seeing the Doctor and his team in the near future.

Starting a professional relationship with a new provider can be a challenging when the first appointment is over the phone. However, I felt this first visit was very successful. Dr. Sales explained my medical condition and answered my questions very throughly. I hung up feeling very positive about Dr. Sales expertise in his field.

Good talk, and I had a list of questions. I honestly don't remember now who exactly I talked with, so forgive me - no face to attach to the conversation. I am still puzzled about the pain around the Grtr-Trochanter bone, bursitis or no? Why does it hurt there so much? Actually a bit on the other side too. But I am motivated to stick with the PT exercies - I am pretty much making the exercises up as I go now, trying to drill down into where the tightness and weaknesses are. Wish all communications were't remote, but for now that is what it is.

Dr Sales explained everything about my back problems that I still had after surgery and was informative about what I needed to do going forward.

A little late starting. Mr. Brown was good, explained things clearly, and helpfully used his pointer to help me understand what is going on in my spine.

Dr Sales was very professional and comes highly recommended. I would give 5 stars with the exception of the lady at the front desk. Extremely argumentative on phone and in person. I did communicate this with Dr. Sales other staff members.
