I think Dr. Thalgott has to bee one of the best Doctors I know. he is very caring, an awesome surgeon. I have had surgery 2 times due to my negligence. My biggest impression was him asking before he did surgery if I could live with the pain, my second surgery after 2 weeks already feels like a success.

Dr Thalgott has excellent credentials and teaches throughout the world. He is attentive and is quick to diagnose the problem. However, his only option is surgery. Other options should be explored prior to suggesting surgery. A second opinion is always essential; however, I'd recommend this physician to my friends.

I've had numerous back problems over the years. The first one was about 6 years ago. I went to see Dr. John Thalgott, and even though I had to sit in his waiting room for a few hours, it was all worth it. Dr. Thalgott is a fabulous doctor! He told me what was wrong, told me he would fix it, told me I would feel better, walk better, and I did. He also told me some things I did not want to hear about myself, (lose weight) but if he didn't would he really be treating me as a whole person? Dr. Thalgott is a fabulous spine surgeon, and teacher, teaching all over this and other countries. I would recommend him to anyone and over the years his name is the first out of my mouth when I see someone suffering with back pain. You can not do any better, on the West Coast, I'll promise you that!
