    How was your appointment with Dr. Paulson?

    Feb 24, 2023
    I wrote a review previously after my first appointment and was amazed by his care and concern. He explained EVERYTHING in detail. I was planning on putting off the surgery as long as I could. I then had severe pain and scheduled my surgery. Again he explained it all in detail. My surgery was less than 3 weeks ago and I am so pleased with the outcome that I’m amazed! He checked on me every day along with his PA Darcie Sorensen. This was my 16th orthopedic surgery and I haven’t ever experienced the care and concern like I did at Innovative Neurosurgery. The medical staff is second to none as is their office staff. I’m still in awe of the care, concern and compassion I was shown. They are WAY more than 5 stars! They are the best of the best!!
