    full_star-smallfull_star-smallfull_star-smallfull_star-smallfull_star-smallSubmitted Jan. 7, 2015 Dr. Honey is an amazing, knowledgeable, gifted & frank person. I felt thoroughly informed about the risks, and potential rewards of DBS. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.  
    full_star-smallfull_star-smallfull_star-smallfull_star-smallfull_star-small Submitted Aug. 23, 2011 My husband had the DBS done by Dr. Honey in 2009. We were very pleased with the operation and Doctor Honey took the time after the op. to come out and speak with me and let me know how it went and what to expect after. The follow up was very good.
    full_star-smallfull_star-smallfull_star-smallfull_star-smallfull_star-small Submitted Jan. 9, 2011 Dr. Honey makes you feel very important and validated. He gives thorough information and is very open to questions. I left a message on his receptionists phone about getting a copy of a form and he called me back himself to ask how I was doing. He knows his stuff and really inspires confidence. One of the few surgeons I know of that doesn’t do MVD for GPN, but instead does a resection of the nerves roots. Results for me were 100% with no remaining after effects. Thanks again!
