I was blessed to have such an excellent doctor for my child , I appreciate not being rushed and having the best bed side manner . He took his time during each appointment and post op . His staff speak very very highly of him and how folks from all over the world come see him. He is a true blessing .Jun 11,2019
Dr Ygnve is the most outstanding dr I have ever had. since my original scoli surgery a couple of years ago I have moved to Spring. I still traveled the distance to see him for issues with my back instead of finding a dr closer to where I live. there is no dr I would trust more with my care than him and it's worth the travel time to see him.Jun 04,2019
He kept beating around the bush, like if in non-believe, trying to say it's not what it is -May 30,2019
