“Dr. Tomaras did for me what no other doctor had been able to do in 17 years…he got rid of my pain!! First he figured out what was wrong!! Then he fixed it with a spinal fusion and I have had a life with no more pain meds!! I didn’t think that was ever going to be possible. He was wonderful, caring and I would, without hesitation, recommend him to anyone needing spinal surgery. In fact, my son had spinal surgery shortly after I did for a ruptured disc. I am 5 years+ out and going strong!” ~ Healthgrades Review
