"Just turning 65, I never had surgery, and now in agonizing pain for a synovial cyst on my spine, I was not sure where to turn. The first name that came up was Dr. Evan Packer. I thank God every day since my surgery that he was my surgeon. As soon as I met with him, the confidence in his capabilities walked in the room with him and I knew I would be in good hands. He is simply the "Best," kind, caring and extremely competent. Thank you Dr. Evan Packer. "

"Dr. Evan Packer is smart, talented, caring and communicative. He operated on me, doing a lumbar fusion 7 weeks ago. This was a bit of a serious operation, he totally explained it in language that was understandable and forthright. Dr. Packer would always personally return my calls. He has changed my life with his skillful hands, and I will always remember him! "

"I know that I might embarrass the doctor by saying that he is amazing but that's how I feel after he operated on me for a brain tumor. Fortunately, it turned out to be benign. The doctor's communication with his patients (and spouses) is also great since he listens as well as provides important follow up information once the operation has been completed. In my opinion, he is aware of and uses the latest surgical techniques based on my experience with him."

"Dr. Packer is an amazing doctor. His bedside manners are the best I have seen in a doctor. When he came out to speak to me after my husband's surgery he explained everything and was not in a hurry. I called on the Sunday after my husband's surgery because we had questions. I got the answering service and left a message for Dr. Packer to call me back. I no sooner walked over to my husband to tell him that I left a message and my phone was ringing and it was Dr. Packer. I was in shock that I received a return call so fast. I apologized that I was calling on a Sunday, and he said no problem at all that's what he is there for. Another shock. Especially the way anything medical is handled today. It's as if doctors are in a hurry and your only a number. Not with Dr. Packer !!! I called the office for my husband and left a message for Dr. Packer. I missed the return call and I said to myself, “Oh Boy I will never be able to get the doctor.” Wrong again. Another shock came!! I called back and the women on the phone, which I didn't get her name, very polite, by the way, said please hold on. Dr. Packer picked up the phone. At this point I was speechless, and I told the doctor that I was sorry I missed his call and I didn't expect him to be picking up the phone. He said this is what he does!! It's how he likes to treat his patients. The medical profession could use a great lesson from Dr. Packer on how to treat your patients. He is so kind and understanding. I would recommend Dr. Packer in a heartbeat. We need more doctors like him!!! Thank You, Doctor, Very Much!!!!"

“I was nervous about getting surgery done on my neck but from start to finish Dr. Packer and his staff were nothing but amazing. His staff was always friendly and had a smile on their face every time I visited the office or called on the phone. One staff member even gave me her personal cell phone number to keep in contact with her while I waited over the weekend for my insurance to approve my surgery scheduled for a Monday! Meeting and talking with Dr. Packer put me at ease right away. He didn't carry a hint of arrogance that some doctors seem to have. He took professional pride in what he did and made sure all my questions were answered. Surgery was on time and the results are wonderful. No more pain for me! I am so happy! I would recommend Dr. Packer to anyone who needs an amazing neurosurgeon! Never once did I leave the office or hang up the phone feeling as though I was just another patient to them. Thank you so much for everything!!”
