Patient Testimonials

“Dr. Gocke is an excellent physician and highly skilled surgeon. When I first went to see him 2 months ago and told him the problems I was having he took my pain seriously, he told me that he could help me , and he certainly did. He ordered an MRI and went over the results with me, explained my condition and answered any questions I had. He gave me all the options that we could choose to do. I chose to have the surgery and I am so glad that I did. I had ACDF surgery 2 weeks ago that was very successful. The pain that I had before surgery is now gone. He has helped me so much and I am so grateful to him. Dr. Gocke and his staff have taken excellent care of me. I trust him completely and I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs spine surgery. If I ever need another spine surgery, he is going to be the doctor to do it. Thank you Dr. Gocke!” – Gloria, anterior cervical discectomy and fusion surgery
