I was in complete disarray! I couldn't sleep anymore because I had so much pain in my lower back. I was referred to Dr. Walpert through my local MD here in Athens. I can't understand how anyone (in their right mind, that is) could give her a bad review. Before I had the surgery even menial tasks were hard to carry out. After my laminectomy I was immediately aware that the numbness down my legs was gone. My back didn't hurt me at all. When I came out of the anesthesia Dr. Walpert was sitting there right beside me. She was amazing through the entire ordeal. She is a professional in every sense of the word. She is also kind, courteous, and has a charming sense about her. I highly recommend Dr. Kimberly Walpert.
