Dr. Ratliff, his nurse Vania, and the ENTIRE staff at Stanford University - that includes valet, info desk folks, admin assistants, PA's, nurses and, of course, Dr. Ratliff - are all extremely professional, kind, compassionate people. My entire experience was handled with such care and I was treated with respect. My questions were always answered (and I ask a lot of questions). People smiled at me. Best of all, Dr. Ratliff was able to take care of my L5S1 herniated disc (discectomy) and I am now in significantly less pain than before. I am still recovering, but my life is dramatically different, and I owe him a debt of gratitude. Thank you to everyone at Stanford who participated in this. I feel so lucky to have been referred to him and hope this helps you feel comfortable giving him a try. The man is an expert and you will be in wonderful hands!

Dr. Ratliff is an amazing surgeon. He has a wealth of knowledge, he's courteous, confident, and extremely skilled. His staff is wonderful, kind, and knowledgable. We (my family & I)travelled two hours to have him as my surgeon. He has been a blessing.
