Patient Reviews

Dr. Daniels is by far the best doctor I have seen overall. He performed at diseconomy on my lumbar spine (removed a herniated disk from the lower back) and I was back to my daily routine just a few days later. Following my surgery, he was even willing to answer my call at 9:30pm on a Sunday night to answer my many questions regarding post-op. He also makes an effort to get to know each of his patients and was the first visitor I had the morning following my surgery, just to check in on me.

Brandy Isomin Rhode Island I had surgery March 6, 2017 and I feel wonderful. Dr. Daniels performed an anterior and posterior lumber fusion and I no longer have serve pain in my right leg. Everyone at University of Orthopedics has been wonderful. My experience has been great. I truly appreciated it. I am so gladful I did this and now I can get back to the old me. I am glad to meet one of the best doctor's. Thanks,

-Brandy Isom in Providence, RI | Mar 24, 2017


Dr. Daniels was excellent on all fronts. He understood my pain and diagnosed the problem quickly, knew exactly how to fix it, and took the time to explain the surgery that was required - a cervical discectomy and fusion of multiple discs. Dr. Daniels was empathetic, has a wonderful personality, and genuinely expresses care and concern every time you see him. The best part... he performed the surgery perfectly. My family and I will be forever grateful to Dr. Daniels and University Orthopedic.

I highly recommend Dr. Daniels. He was able to diagnose me for Spinal stenosis Myelopathy clearly and quickly based on my MRI and symptoms. His staff Sarah and Lisa are exceptionally competent and compassionate. They scheduled the necessary tests in a timely manner and were able to schedule surgery quickly. Dr. Daniels explained the surgical procedure in detail and made both my family and me extremely comfortable. Dr. Daniels returned my quality of my life back.

-Gary Lesperance in North Providence, RI | Nov 13, 2016


Dr. Alan Daniels is without question the most caring and capable physician I have ever known. During the almost two years I was under his expert care, Dr. Daniels and his staff made me feel more like a family friend rather than just another patient. After two complex spine surgeries, my recovery is going very well with no complications! It has been quite the journey for me and my family, however Dr. Daniels and his outstanding staff have expertly cared for me every step of the way! Thanks!

-Michael T in North Smithfield | Aug 12, 2016


Caring, informative, confident

-Gerry in Warwick, RI | Apr 22, 2016


At our first appointment, Dr. Daniels gave me something that my previous orthopedic did not -- his time. After living with severe back pain for weeks and not having success with less invasive measures, I agreed that spine surgery was the necessary next step. Though I wasn't crazy about the idea, Dr. Daniels answered all of my questions and assured me that I would feel better and be able to resume a normal life after surgery. Thanks to Dr. Daniels, I am now on the road to recovery.
