    I would have given Dr. Ozgur 10 out of 5 stars if possible. He has recently performed back surgery on my wife that was very successful, with quick recovery and excellent results; my wife went from extreme pain to pain-free overnight.

  • Jon

    Five stars doesn't really describe the degree of gratitude I have for this man and his staff. Dr. Ozgur, Erin, and Yulia have all been extraordinary in providing care that continues to exceed my expectations.

  • Daniel

    Extremely concerned and competent staff is responsive to new patient questions and concerns. Staff help lead me to consultation with Dr. Ozgur who in turn introduced me to Dr. Peters. Diagnosis, plan of surgery and follow-up. Excellent! A great medical experience!
