Ben C., Tucson

I went to several neurosurgeons prior to Dr. Curtin. Not one of them read any of my physical therapy reports, of which there were many, or even listened to my history. They just looked at an x-ray, did a few tests and said they could not help me. Their bedside manner was non-existent. They had absolutely no social skills in...

Having had back pain which was getting worse, and getting no relief from other clinics, I contacted Tucson Orthopaedic Institute. After meeting with Dr. Curtin and his PA, Richard Street, I was scheduled for surgery. Now I am pain free. Dr. Curtin and the staff at Tucson Ortho and TMC are the best!

Dr. Curtin is an outstanding surgeon in addition to having a nice personality and a good sense of humor. He pays attention to what you are saying and you never feel that you have been talked down to; very important in a doctor. He has operated on me twice now for spinal stenosis...the last was 8 days ago and I...
