World class care, it is that simple. Dr. Haines is extremely knowledgeable and his ability to show empathy cannot be overlooked. The time he spent meeting with me, walking through the various options, timelines etc, was very comforting. I highly recommend VSI, from the Doctors to the Physician Assistants, they are the best of the best.

Dr Haines and his team are a blessing to anyone with spine issues. They work well with each other and the patients. The team goes into action quickly from your first visit and consultation through the surgery and recovery. They answer any questions you may have and give specific instructions for care. They are available to discuss any questions or issues you have. My husband, Donnie, was out of chronic pain when he came out of surgery. Donnie starts physical therapy one month after surgery to ensure he builds his core muscles and continues to gain strength. We highly recommend Dr. Haines and Virginia Spine Instititue.

Dr Good is the best spine surgeons in the US. Dr Good performed a cervical spine fusion in 2010. It’s been 14 years and having him do the surgery on my neck was the best decision I’ve ever made. I recommend Dr Good from the Virginia spine institute to anyone suffering in pain. Ever since my surgery I’ve had little or no pain at all. Thanks Dr Good, Trish Marek Tidwell

EVERYBODY, their entire team, treated us as if we were important. Not only is the medicine first class, but the facilities are also superior, and the people are kind and caring. Follow up was prompt and clear; we were not forgotten when we left the office. We are so glad to have found VSI and it is worth taking the time to fly to Reston to see their doctors. 🙂 We live in North Carolina. Thank you VSI

I am a patient of both Dr. Kemp and Dr. Kim and my experience has been absolutely wonderful since the first time i called to schedule. everyone that works in the office is so kind and they really listen to patients. they actually take the time to make sure they hear your concerns, you understand treatment plans, tests, results, etc. i feel like i now have a comprehensive plan to resolve the pain i have had in my neck from a hernia for several months now and i feel supported by my doctors and have full confidence in the team at VSI, it's been a really refreshing experience and i feel very grateful for them.

Front desk and all personnel were excellent. I had leg pain from a lower back nerve pressure. Dr. Kemp was my surgeon and we worked through several modalities to a hemi-laminectomy which at least at 3 weeks post op I could not be more pleased with the results. I think I was well informed of all options and had detailed evaluation going into the treatment and all previous work-up to the surgery. I would recommend my team, Dr, Kemp and the spine institute with no reservations.
