    I was out of pain immediately after surgery. Dr. Woodward was the best. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

    All of my experiences have been very professional, and Dr. Ladd's procedures in performing epidural space injections have been mainly no pain. He communicates with you at every step from preparing for the injection through the end of the procedure. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a pain management doctor because he is excellent and has a great bedside manner.

    The quality of care, empathy, and professionalism displayed by the doctors and staff are beyond my expectations.

    Dr. Longley is everything you would ever ask for in the person who will be operating on your spine. From the first appointment to after the surgery, he was a pro. He listens and provides honest answers. I recently went back in a couple of years after my big surgery with some new issues, and he was the same pro as before and took great care of me again. Thanks, Dr. Longley!

    Great place, been going to Nebraska Spine + Pain Center since March of 2012. Dr. Longley and his physician assistant Pat McClaughry are the best. Always taking the time to explain to you your X-rays and scans. Very personable, cannot beat them. All the X-ray personnel and CT scan and MRI personnel are always so helpful and nice. Only place I would ever go to.

    Thank you for a successful surgery. I had a few months where I did not believe I was going to get back to where I am now: standing straight and 99% pain free. Again, thank you!

    – Chris

    Omaha, NE

    I would give 10 stars if possible! The receptionist was excellent, she put us at ease checking in for the first time. She was helpful, knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient. The nurse that we saw right before meeting with Dr. West was wonderful also. It was refreshing to come into an office and feel genuinely welcomed and put at ease. Overall, I found the office and all the staff we met were excellent at their jobs!

    – Holly

    Omaha, NE

    Staff was great with scheduling me, making sure my paperwork was uploaded. Dr. Ladd and Erin were amazing to work with. Easy to communicate with and straightforward with steps that needed to happen next.

    – Darci

    Sarah, using recent X-rays and CT scans, showed me why I have been experiencing the neck and shoulder pain. We discussed my options, which included both medication and potential surgery. Recognizing that I have a busy summer ahead, we decided to wait to make any long-term decisions, because medication serves as a temporary solution. At no time did I feel any pressure to get any immediate surgery, and I am confident that Sarah and my doctor will help me when I am ready.

    – Susan

    Omaha, NE

    Great staff all around from reception to the doctors. Very good listeners—give the patient a good plan for surgery to correct the problem area and afterwards to lead to a productive, healthy life. Highly recommended.

    – Brad

    Omaha, NE

    After being in constant pain in my neck and arm, I saw Dr. Woodward. He talked to me about my pain, what is causing my pain, and gave me several options to relieve the pain. Dr. Woodward is very personable and compassionate. He took his time with me, listened to my concerns, and questions. I am now pain free. If I ever have issues later in my life with my back or neck, I will be going back to him. I am happy with PT and the nurses I had as well. I highly recommend.

    – Sara

    Omaha, NE

    I am so grateful to Nebraska Spine + Pain Center for giving me my life back! 18 months ago I could barely walk into your office. I just returned from a motorcycle tour that took me to the Base Camp of Mount Everest!  Dr. McClellan, Sarah, and your entire staff exceeded my expectations! I truly felt like I was being cared for by family. The coordination between doctors and staff is unlike anything I have ever experienced. I am so grateful for what you have done for me!

    Deborah comes all the way to Nebraska from Ohio because she thinks so highly of Dr. Fuller and everyone at Nebraska Spine + Pain Center. She said she is truly grateful for the care she receives from everyone at Nebraska Spine + Pain Center!

    – Deborah L.


    I’m so grateful for all the folks at Nebraska Spine + Pain Center. The positive attitudes they all have and the way they reach out farther to help is so appreciated. With all of the frustrations and pain I have experienced, I am thankful they go the extra mile for me.
