"I almost died after an alleged drunk driver crashed into our family car and left the right side of my skull in tiny pieces. The hands of God worked through Dr. Luke Corsten and he pieced together my skull with tiny titanium plates... like little snowflakes in my head.  I am a walking miracle thanks to my hero, Dr. Corsten. He is not just a doctor. He is more like family."

"If it weren't for The NeuroMedical Center and Dr. Scott Soleau, I wouldn't be enjoying fatherhood after a nearly fatal hit and run in 2012.  Against all odds, I survived a traumatic brain injury and I have Dr. Soleau and the entire NeuroMedical Center team to thank."

“I was thrown over the top of a horse’s head and landed on my tailbone. The pain from the accident progressively got worse; I experienced depression, lost muscle function, and couldn’t go to work. Dr. Oberlander suggested surgery and it was THE BEST decision I ever made! Dr. Oberlander gave me my life back! I am able to do the things I love again including competitive body building, riding horses, and spending lots of time with my family!"

“Dr. Gerald Calegan listens and he cares. He is extremely knowledgeable. He diagnosed me with peripheral neuropathy and he immediately had a treatment plan with supplements, two medications and a diet low in carbs and little or no sugar. I bought the two books he recommended after my first appointment.  The books are amazing and became my road map to find the cure to my peripheral neuropathy. I had relief due to this diet in 1 week! Dr. Calegan saved my life.”

“When I met Dr. Scott Soleau, I had just awoken from 30+ hrs. on a ventilator, with my family waiting to hear of my passing. Because of Dr. Soleau’s absolute brilliance as a neurosurgeon that moment never came. When I tried to thank him for saving my life, he insisted that he was only an instrument, that God was who actually saved my life.  I hope he sees this, I want him to know how truly thankful and elated I am to have met and been associated with an individual of his caliber in my lifetime.”

“Dr. Charles Bowie is God sent to my family. We met him due to an accident that my daughter had. He is the reason why she can speak, walk, look both ways, and know what’s going on around her. Our paths met again due to my 7 year back pain simply becoming unbearable. I had a bulging disc pushing on my nerves. We scheduled surgery for a Friday and I was back at work on Tuesday with no pain. Absolutely amazing. He saved my daughter and changed my life. Everyday I’ll pray that we were introduced to this man.”

“Dr. Glenn Kidder has been a life saver for me. He was able to quickly diagnose my problem which turned out to be a rather rare condition. Actually he did it on the 1st visit. The treatments over the last 2 years have greatly improved my quality of life. Initially taken in the hospital, Dr. Kidder, was there to supervise the administration and was always reassuring and easy to talk to. When I asked questions he was more than happy to not only answer them, but to engage in deeper discussions about my condition. I would highly recommend him.”
