Dr Shifflett takes the time to listen to your issues and covers all the possible solutions available to you. You never feel rushed and he helps extend a possible attitude so you know you are getting the best care and advice available. Recommend him for a primary evaluation or as a second opinion. He was my second opinion doctor as I was not satisfied with the advise and options given to me by the surgeon that performed my first spinal surgery. I immediately felt that my issue was going to be handled in the best possible manner.

After several years of procrastination I discovered DISC, and Dr. Shifflett, and made an appointment to address my multiple lower back issues. At my first appointment I knew he was the right doctor for me. After all the scans and imaging were done, I was shocked to find out that my neck was actually in far worse shape than my back! It was decided to do the cervical artificial disc replacement. Had some bumps along the way due to miscommunication from my other doctors and imaging places, and Dr S. took the time to call me personally several times to answer questions and resolve issues. Dr. S. has always been very generous of his time, and you never feel rushed at your appointments. He explains things in layman terms, and is very warm and personable. My surgery at the Surgery Center went smoothly, and the care was excellent. The Imaging Center across the street is also fabulous, and so handy. Dr Shifflett's assistant Blake is also great, and helped me a lot in navigating all the insurance issues. I just had a follow up appt. yesterday, and again, much discussion about many things, I actually look forward to going! Thanks again everyone at DISC!

Terrific doctor. This was my one year check up post back fusion and I feel fabulous. It was a perfect surgery. I recommend Dr. Shifflett to everyone. You owe it to yourself to find out about his minimally invasive surgery. Recovery was a breeze.

My wife and I meet with Dr Shifflett to discuss my problems with my cervical and lower lumber spine because I needed another opinion from those that stated I need major surgery immediately. Dr Shifflet took considerable time with us going over the results of the MRI and X-Rays and the problems I had. He plan that at the beginning did not require surgery but therapy and injections and monitoring with micro surgery if my situation did not improve. He contacted my primary doctor and discussed with him and we have agreed on the plan. While other doctors wanted to operate right away Dr Shifflet took the time to to have a plan that would minimize my pain and a alternative to major surgery. We were impressed with the clarity in explaining the issues and his compassion .

I had a C6-C7 disc implant by Dr Shifflett Aug 2018. I had visited 2 other specialists prior to seeing him, each having different recommendations. The first specialist recommended fusion of C6-C7 due to the level of bone degradation I have, stating an implant would likely not work. The second specialist recommended fusion of all 4 vertebrae C4 thru C7 due to other disc protrusions I had in those interfaces. Of course given I do not generally like to fix things that are not broken, I disregarded the second opinion at the outset. The first opinion I did consider, however knowing an implant would increase the spacing in my spine and this could possibly cause pinching of nerves in areas that were not an issue. I reasoned that if the implant turned out to be a problem I could later resort to the fusion as a last resort. So, I gave it a try and I am glad I did. Dr Shifflett answered all of my questions, and was very patient with me. He was not in a rush and we met on more than one occasion to discuss the procedure. The procedure took a bit more than 1 hour and was performed at the Newport Beach facility. A very clean, professional place and the staff there was outstanding. They prefer an overnight stay to be sure all is well, and I was extremely comfortable. My recovery was great, with no issues afterward. No new pains and healing has gone well. We did a series of follow-ups. and each time I was given ample time to discuss how I was doing. I HIGHLY recommend Dr Shifflett and his team !!!
