His passion for providing excellent care was apparent at each visit and I am EXTREMELY thankful for entrusting my care to Dr. Wahlquist.
I met Dr. Trevor Wahlquist at a very low point in my life. Chronic debilitating nerve pain was in charge and I gained weight and struggled with every aspect of my life. After failing conservative therapy, I met with Dr. Wahlquist who thoroughly reviewed my MRI with me. He recommended spinal fusion surgery and explained it in great detail. He suggested I think about further questions and return on my timeline. My sister, also a spine surgeon, and I created an extensive list of questions and Dr. Wahlquist answered each one in detail. Fast forward, my surgery was a HUGE success. Dr. Wahlquist is a master of his craft, not only a gifted surgeon, but a relatable and kind person. His passion for providing excellent care was apparent at each visit and I am EXTREMELY thankful for entrusting my care to Dr. Wahlquist.
