Excellent experience seeing Dr.Shifflett for a consultation. Experiencing chronic neck and lower back pain (degenerated discs). Physical therapy hasn’t solved the issue. Dr.Shifflett clearly explained the surgical options and how we can resolve.

DR Grant Shifflett was very helpful and went out of his way to acommodate me since I was coming from Healdsburg ca.- He did the best he could to fix my back issues- If it was not so far away I would liked to have followed up on my continued back problems. there was still some work to be done-Thanks

I have undergone 2 procedures with Dr. Shifflett and staff. From the initial consultation Dr. Shifflett has been open to discussing multiple options as well as likely outcomes. His ability to listen to the patient is amazing. His bed manner is the best I have ever seen and I truly believe he wants what is best for his patients. I have the possibility of having to have another surgery down the line and I wouldn’t want anyone else working on my neck or back in the future. Thank you Dr. Shifflett and Hanna for providing such an amazing service, one of the best.

Although it was only a phone conversation, Dr. Shifflett projects the same care, concern and humility that I encountered during in person visits.

Dr Shifflett did a superb job with surgery for herniated disk surgery in my lower back. He really cares about patients. I was referred to him by my internist. I am out of pain, from the moment I awoke from surgery. Great experience.

From start to finish, his office was very thorough, competent and most important, compassionate. Dr. Shifflett gave me the various options regarding my condition and was very upfront about both pros and cons going forward. I am very glad I decided to go with the procedure (microdiscectomy). With that said, the ease of check-in, flow of process (day of surgery) knowledge and kindness of the staff was very comforting.

I recently went to Dr. Shifflett for a spine consultation. I am 75 years old and have already had one spine surgery about 5 years ago. I have many issues with my spine and am in pain everyday because of it. Dr. Shifflett was compassionate, kind, answered all my questions, and there was no rush to move onto the next patient. He immediately diagnosed my main problem at L3-L4 and recommended a microdisectomy and microdecompression minimally invasive. I said O.K. let's proceed which we did. I liked his approach with me that "less is more" because many of the other neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons wanted to do a major anterior/posterior lumbar fusion. That is a big surgery that I'm trying to avoid. It has been 12 days post surgery now and I'm starting to feel better with less pain. He advised that at 6 weeks post surgery, I will feel much better.Dr. Shifflett is a very bright physician and a pleasure to converse with. I have all the confidence in the world in him and would highly recommend him to anyone with spine issues.

There is nothing like great news to make a visit excellent. After 5 months of pain, I am pain free! I cannot express how thankful I am for the wonderful care and overall experience I had at Disc and from Dr. Shifflett. Everything came off perfectly with my procedure and every effort was made to help understand what was wrong with my and what they could do to correct my condition. Thank You so much for the care I was given. I will always be grateful for Disc and Dr. Shifflett.

Not a visit this time -- just a prolonged telephone report on some MRIs in advance of an office appointment. But superb thoughtful, responsive, and thorough care, as usual. Bravo.
