I was very pleased with my First visit with Dr. Song and his staff. Dr. Song was very Engaged with us and explaining everything with his Finding from my MRI for over a hour, which my Wife and I felt very comfortable after Dr. Song walk us through every step moving forward.. This will be my very first neck surgery which I'm little nervous about but after meeting with Dr. Song I know we have made the right choice with him and his staff.

Dr. Song is the consummate professional. He is a wealth of knowledge and put me at ease by describing the medical situation and then suggesting several treatment options. Our family has been blessed by previous intervention by Dr. Song and I am delighted to again be able to benefit from his expertise and years of experience. Rob Scanland

I feel like Ashlee really listens to me when I tell her about my pain, and does not dismiss it like other doctors have. It is always nice to see Ashlee as she is friendly and competent. I would highly recommend seeing her.

It is easy to write a good review when the pain is finally gone right after surgery, as of today in 2022 it has been 14 years since my surgery, but the whole story is worth finally telling. I’m a granite installer who blew out my back so bad I could not walk and the pain was so severe I wanted to die, my brother and wife carried me to the ER and it was there I met Dr Song. He came to my ER bed around 9pm after performing brain surgery all day! I had no insurance and knew he didn’t have to take me as a patient. As I was basically begging him to help me with the promise that I would pay him, though it would take time, his words to me were “ let’s first get you better then we can talk money”. True to his word The Next Morning! I was under his skillful hands. It turned out that not only did I have blown disks I had other congenital abnormalities. He fixed them all and I have not had pain since the day I came out of surgery ( just normal aches and pains from working) and I have not stopped working to this day I’m 58 years old and I thank The Lord for providing such a loving, caring physician You are truly the best Dr Song and my heartfelt thank you goes even deeper for your generosity.

After a major neck surgery, doctor Song already has my complete trust and appreciation. Then because of weather conditions, I missed another appointment to discuss my lower back problems. I called them and told them about it and they got back to me very quickly and made another appointment for the very next day. They got me in right on time I was seeing promptly. They made sure I thoroughly understood the proposed procedure. I was done and out of there within 20 minutes. You just can't beat that.

Colleen B.

On Dec. 13th, I had a follow-up appointment with Ashlee Polkingham, and we discussed the pain I had in my left knee. She went over the X Ray and MRI that was done on my lower back prior to this appointment. She advised me that there may be a problem with my knee that was not related to my back. She recommended that I get an X Ray of my knee, and referred me to Nevada Orthopedic. Ashlee was very thorough and answered all my questions. I was very satisfied with her thorough explanations and her professionalism.

Michael D.

Mary B.

Dr. Song is an exceptional physician, and he should be very proud of his office staff and PA (Mychael). They all do justice to the exceptional practice of Dr. Song.

Glenn S.

Office staff was very friendly and efficient. The visit with the PA (Mychael) was also a positive experience. She was knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive. Dr. Song should be proud of his team.

Glenn S.

My experience with Mychael was wonderful & I felt she was was thorough & informative. What confused me though, was when she said I had scoliosis, so they needed more X-ray’s of my full back/hips. I thought my severe pain from worsening scoliosis, was the reason I was referred to Dr. Song in the first place. Did Dr. Richardson not mention I have worsening scoliosis?

Candice O.

I always feel heard when voicing concerns or just giving feed back about my condition. The staff is always friendly and accommodating. I couldn’t have asked for a better surgeon and staff.

Carlie M.
