I was a patient at Northern Westchester Hospital for spinal fusion surgery in March 2010. Dr. Marshal Peris was so fabulous, great surgical skills, supportive and compassionate. Dr. Deborah Benzil came the next morning to get me out of bed. That is uplifting for a spine surgical patient to have one of the surgeons say come on.. let's get up.. The nurses were very attentive and helpful. I can't say enough about Dr. Peris. I recommend him to anyone considering spine surgery or having back pain !
