I have been a patient of Dr. Cubbage for several years. Each time of go there, he always presents a thorough plan of care. From ordering the most appropriate diagnostic tests to making sure you understand each step of his plan of care. He consistently instills confidence that you are the road to recovery. Plus his assistant Karen is extremely knowledgeable and very caring!

On Feb. 3, 2016 I had lumbar spine surgery by Dr. Cubbage. I was told after the surgery my back pain would be gone. He was right. I had no back pain the day after my surgery. I was off medications the following week. It’s been six weeks now, and I’m pain free. His team took great care and gave instructions that I still follow. Any questions I had after my surgery were quickly answered by Karen Everingham and Tim Moore.

How I felt before:
I felt wide variety of pain in my lower back/ L5-S1/ hip area. It was uncomfortable to sit or stand for long periods of time. I had constant numbness in my legs and feet. The lower part of my abdomen/trunk area was weak. I was always fatigued.
How I was treated in the process:
I received a high level of care throughout the entire process, which was quite a long journey 8 years and counting. Dr. Cubbage and his team educated my family and myself on my condition, as well as wise advise that involved both physical therapy and pain management. They were extremely attentive to all of the concerns we had. Dr. Cubbage went above and beyond the call of what was asked of him. I felt that Dr. Cubbage truly cared about my wellbeing and always had my best interest at heart.
"Born Again" type feeling. What I found to be exhausting on a daily basis is now a piece of cake. I have improved feeling in my lower body. My endurance and strength gets better every day (4 months post- surgery). I can pick up and hold my children without pain, play a round of golf, run, and exercise like a normal, healthy individual.

Memoires of a Grateful Patient
- Buy new pajamas
- Organize the car team – be sure it’s people you can argue with
- Make your favorite soups – run them through the nutribullet – you’ll understand later
- Now is your time (excuse) to spring for permanent makeup and semi permanent eyelashes
- Gather pretty scarves – you’ll understand later
- Obtain a walker and a cane – don’t be scared they’re just for show (not)
I’ve seen Dr. Cubbage twice in the last 6 years. Wishing I would never have to see a doctor for orthopedic care EVER but should you ever find the need for this .. this is the place. I remember being so scared and frightened the first time we met and was told I needed surgery. Afterwards I was so relieved from the pain and respected the after care I received that it was no in doubt the first place I chose to go to for my most recent issues. They did such a wonderful job the first time it was so easy for me to make the decision of having to see him again. I would have never chosen any other place to go. I had trust and faith in him that I will continue to return for whatever my future needs may be. All the staff and nurses (hey saying a shout out to Karen!) are always so friendly and helpful. Not the typical visit of no name and only a paper id feeling of most visits these days. They really do care and respect your needs and feelings during the entire process. I am truly appreciative and hope I don’t have to see you for awhile!!! Lol. Much love and respect!

I highly recommend Dr. Cubbage if you have spinal problems. After reviewing my tests, he explained my options and I decided to have surgery. Dr. Cubbage did a laminectomy with discectomy on L3-L4 in late 2013. Now I feel wonderful compared to the pain and physical limitations I had before the surgery. I am exercising each day, which I could not do beforehand. Doctor surveys always ask about wait time and it is reasonable, 10-20 minutes. But truthfully, if necessary, I would wait hours to see Dr. Cubbage because he is worth the wait. I think he is a very good surgeon that thrives on improving quality of life for people. I appreciate his work and hope he will be available if I (or friends and family) have any spinal problems. Also, he has operated on my father and a friend. Both had good results. Thank you Dr. Cubbage and your staff for improving my life. Tara S.

In the era of full disclosure… I did have to wade through several phone numbers posted for the doctor to get to a live person. When will companies learn this is annoying? However, once I did, I talked to a young lady and she was quite helpful and worked with me on my concerns. About Dr Cubbage and his medical assistant. I felt they both took my condition very seriously as they went through a through examination to figure out what was wrong with me. So far, I’m very pleased with Dr. Cubbage and his staff. If that changes, I’ll post it… I am NOT politically correct.
