Dr. Deuk is one of a kind. I have never trusted a doctor or surgeon more than I trust him. I was told by two other surgeons that my only option was to have a fusion to relive my pain. Dr. Deuk examined me and read my MRI and told me that I did not need a fusion, but that laser surgery would alleviate my pain. I was so relieved that I did not have to undergo a fusion and that I could do this minimally invasive procedure to fix my pain. Let me tell you, it has been 7 weeks since my laser disc repair and I have 0 pain. I am like a new person! I am so thankful I chose to see Dr. Deuk and did not move forward with the other surgery!

I have gone to see doctors about my neck discs for the past 20 years. They pretty much told me the same thing as Dr. Deukmedjian. I needed too have surgery. Dr. Deuk was referred to us by several of his previous patients. I had a cervical fusion and have lost no mobility and no longer in pain. I am now able to do the things i was no longer able to do. I would definitely recommending Dr. Deukmedjian, he gave me my life back and i am very grateful.

For once in my life I am pain free. I have had back pain for 15 years and tried everything to relieve my pain and became dependent on pain meds. I recently had my back surgery and I feel so great. I have 95% pain relief. It's amazing!

I can't begin to explain what Dr. Deuk has meant to me. As much as he is my doctor, he is my friend. I have never ever met a doctor with which i have had so much admiration and respect. And it's not just me, ask any of his patients. His primary assistant, Augusto Cianciabella is equally as kind and caring. You need not take my word. Schedule a visit with Dr. Deuk and Augusto, tour his facility, and surgery center. I am confident there will be no further debate.

Dr. D has been a lifesaver for me. I suffered from neck pain for over 3 years. Most doctors wanted to fuse my neck but he gave me the alternative to fixing my neck with laser disc repair. I no longer have numbness and shooting pain down my arms. I could not believe the difference- i have 100% relief! Please go see Dr Deuk.

Dr. Deuk was very honest with me about my condition from the first appointment....i was told by another surgeon i need surgery right away. dr. deuk wanted me to try conservative treatment first and i am so glad i did. i am only 43 years old. i saw dr patel for injections and i have been out of pain for over a year. i still have check ups with dr deuk and he said it's possible down the road i might need surgery but for now continue managing my pain with shots. i love how honest he is and not eager to cut on my back when something else works.
