  • I have been in considerable psin for almost a year. Dr. Brodke has quickly diagnosed the problem. we have a plan for treatment and if necessary surgery. He seems very knowledgeable. I have been incredibly impressed by him and his staff.

  • Dr Brodke is literally saving my life. Even though the cervical fusion sx was the most difficult I have ever endured and the pain excruciating his staff were concerned, attentive, helpful and very easy to contact. I suffered excruciating headaches for months because of the deterioration in my spine. I am still recuperating but am hopeful I will have vast improvement and quality of life.

  • Dr Brodke and his staff has been diligent in working to relieve my problem, compassionate in their care of me, proactive in communicating with me. They have made me feel safe facing what is for me, a very difficult surgery. Thank you
