Dr. Eyke has always been a pleasant human being and doctor. He did my original surgery about two years ago and has been on tract with my follow up appointments.

Dr. Eyke is one of a very few doctors I would recommend to my family and friends. He has fused my neck which turned out fantastic!!! I feel 100% better than before I had surgery!! He is very personable and listens to what you have to say. Many doctors these days don't. If I ever need neck or spinal surgery again Dr. Eyke is the only one I will go to for that kind of surgery!!! — Tami B.

Just completed my 3rd spinal surgery with this surgeon over the last 15 years. He has fused vertebra in my back and neck. I would trust him with my children. His staff is top notch in knowledge, experience and care. If you suffer from back pain, please at a minimum at least get a consult with Dr. Eyke, he will be honest and direct about your options. — Adam B.

Dr. Eyke was very professional and upfront about my two level cervical fusion. I was in and out the same day from the procedure and have recovered more quickly than I expected. Very few issues. Was back to office work part-time by the second week and by the 6th week post-op feel fairly normal again. Well satisfied. — Douglas F.

Dr. Eyke removed bone spurs from my husband's spine that were causing great difficulty in swallowing. People told him it would be a nasty surgery but his outcome was amazing. This is not a "normal" surgery since it is an unusual condition. We can't say enough about how pleased we are with the results and with Dr. Eyke' s care and concern. — Doris C.
