I have to say I am blown away by how amazing Dr. Demers and staff are.

He just performed my surgery and I am symptom free! Besides the healing. But I can’t thank him
and his staff enough. I cry thinking at how much my life will change now. Thank you from
me and my family. We love you Dr. Demers!

Dr. Morgan, When I first met you, I knew I could trust you & what you say.

My first surgery was pain free. My second surgery was pain free & corrected the pinched nerves. Everything you told me was true. Your knowledge of medicine & your truthfulness is so refreshing. You really care about your patients. You answered all of my questions with straight talk. I wish I could reward you in some way.

God Bless you and your family.

– John M.

Thank You Dr. Tolbert

I can’t NOT cry when I think about what this incredible person has done for me…..my words cannot express how I feel about him. He was created and sent from God to help me and my family! Marshall Tolbert is at the top of my list of incredible people by far!

Thank you Marshall for being you and Thank you God!

Dr. Moore was very informative

and took the time to explain everything in detail and go out of his way to answer my questions. I have had a bad run with doctors being dismissive and he is the complete opposite and makes me way more comfortable coming back and taking his advice on what to do going forward.

This was my second back surgery with Dr. Vacca.

He is top rated in his field and I went to him the second time with total confidence.

The entire staff at Sierra Neurosurgery is exceptionally courteous and willing to help with any patient problems and/or questions that might arise. I highly recommend this doctor and his medical group.
