“My experience with Dr. Donegan has been honestly a wonderful experience. He is very professional and takes the time to listen to my concerns and needs. His entire staff is terrific and I will highly recommend them to anybody looking for professional care.”
“Dr. Peters quickly took in the information of my injury and the care that was provided up to now. He assessed the problem and immediately moved for treatment. He was straightforward and knew what to do. I was truly relieved. I have been in pain for more than three months, and he immediately knew what was wrong and how to treat it. Truly an amazing experience! What a great doctor!”
“This was my 1st surgery with Dr. Nathan Williams. When I went to see him for an opinion, and he told me I will have to go to the operation to take my scar tissues out, due that I had a knee replacement ten months ago and still could not vent my knee. This was going to be my 3rd surgery! But, of course, I didn't have the previous operations with Dr. Williams, who explained every detail of what he was going to do and also what will be my responsibilities. Clear enough! He told me the goal was to be able to vent my knee to, at least 90 degrees in 3 months, to be functional. I did it in 6 weeks (94 degrees) and still will continue to be able to perform better each month. Now I am confident I can walk and seat like any other person, also put my socks without any help and much more. Thank-you, Dr. Williams. I could not thank you enough!”
“Surprisingly efficient yet knowledgeable, attentive and friendly. A rare combination in today’s medical environment. Well done.”
“I had back surgery in January and have recovered so well! Dr. Briseno, thank you. Although young and could be my son or grandson I was blessed when Dr. Tucker could not give me any more shots and recommended you. Thank you both.”
“Dr. Briseno is an excellent physician. He is an excellent surgeon, and I have been quite pleased with the care I have received. He also took the time to answer all my questions and provide me with options for my surgery, explaining everything in detail so I could make the best decisions about my care.”
“I have been a patient of North Texas Orthopedics & Spine Center for years now. I have been seen or operated on by several doctors there. It's always been a wonderful experience. Dr. Tucker continues to care for me. He is exceptional. I wouldn't consider going anywhere else. I am more than happy with all the care I have been provided.”
“Dr. Fleager is amazing! Incredibly gifted, humble and compassionate. I have seen several orthopedic doctors in other practices, and they are quite the opposite. Dr. Fleager made me aware of what to expect from my surgery and continued to give me encouragement throughout the recovery process. I was even more encouraged when I mentioned her name to other doctors, and they had extremely high praise for her skill and herself as a compassionate human being.”
“The doctor listened to my mom and explained things to her. Everyone was on top of it and very friendly.”
“Dr. Tucker gave me a pain injection in my neck. He is pleasant and personable, as are all the doctors I have met at North Texas Orthopedics & Spine Center.”
“Dr. Williams took his time and explained my options. We talked and decided what was best for me. He listened. I felt we were partners in my health care. I am overweight. I know it. He just said taking some weight off would help my knees. But did not make me feel bad about myself. Some doctors shame people about their weight which makes us go home and eat some more. I went back I did not eat!”
“Dr. Tucker and his staff are fantastic! Excellent bedside manner, very personable and engaging.”
“North Texas Orthopedics & Spine Center Drs. Tucker and Briseno have successfully treated the debilitating pain and discomfort I was experiencing in my neck and shoulder.
I was unable to lower my head for more than a few seconds without extreme pain, numbness, and muscle spasms. As a former high school and college wrestler and an Army vet, my 65+-year-old spine had had enough.
Dr. Tucker zeroed in on the cause nerve compression due to arthritis in the C5-C6 vertebrae in my neck. We began a series of steroid injections in the joint. The doses would typically bring immediate relief, but throughout months, the pain would return. We eventually agreed that a more permanent solution was needed, and I was referred to Dr. Briseno.
Dr. Briseno explained my options, and we decided that surgically fusing the vertebrae was indicated. This would stabilize the vertebrae and allow bone growth to complete the stabilization over the next six months. The procedure was completed with an overnight hospital stay.
As expected I had an immediate reduction in pain level. The improvement continued, as I regularly returned for X-rays and consultation with PA Rachel. Now six months after the procedure the level of discomfort is minimal and rare and continues to improve. But I promise: the only wrestling I will do is with grandchildren!
Overall, I could not be more pleased with the professionalism, friendliness, and skill of all North Texas Orthopedics & Spine Center doctors and staff who helped me through my ordeal. They have my complete gratitude and highest recommendation.”
“Being a suspicious, non-trusting person toward doctors. I try to avoid them even when I am in pain. That was a bit of a mistake cause my pain got worse. I finally made an appointment with this place and saw Dr. Briseno. He was Wonderful, as was the gentleman that took my X-rays, and then the lady that injected meds into my knee. From the second I walked into that building the staff smiled and was relaxed. Dr.Briseno didn't mess around. He found out what was wrong, and knew what he needed to do to help me, and I walked out of there with zero pain. I have walked downstairs with no pain. Amazing! I am so happy and relieved to have found the perfect Doctor for me!”
“Dr. Tucker, Dr. Ted Peters is excellent.”
“Dr. Donegan listens to my questions and concerns. He is a caring physician, and I cannot recommend him highly enough. His staff is friendly and caring and professional.”
“Couldn't have been better!”
