  • Dr Mounts was very helpful. I was in severe pain. He prescribed oral steroids that helped with my mobility. I’m hoping no surgery yet. Thanks Dr Mounts and staff.

  • I saw Dr. Mounts after going to a different highly recommended surgeon. I was beyond disappointed and frustrated. Dr. Mounts was suggested and I couldn’t be happier. He is kind, considerate, he LISTENS and I felt heard. He sat and explained my MRI while looking at it, his diagnosis was better than the radiology report. I feel supported and I trust him. It’s been a horrible injury and he just makes me feel validated. Thank you, Dr. Mounts! Amy Hawkins, Newbury Park

  • Dr. Mounts provides the kind of service I have not seen in 40 years. Most doctors do not take the time to listen to your concerns, but he does. He calls out other health providers that have not done their job and works at “making it right” for the patient. He calls you directly when needed. Who does that? I have a hard time getting my primary care doctor to call me because they usually want me to make an appointment. I have had a doctor refuse to talk to me over the phone! Dr. Mounts is a very knowledgeable orthopaedic doctor. I recommend him without hesitation.

  • My husband suffered with lower back pain for over 10 years. He'd had many injection treatments and endless pain medications but nothing lasted. Dr. Mounts was the ONLY doctor to study his entire spine. As it turned out, the problem wasn't in his lower back but in his neck. Dr. Mounts did cutting edge surgery and my husband is completely without back pain. He's a new man and I thank Dr. Mounts for his amazing care and true interest in my husband's well being. I recommend him to everyone I know with back pain.

  • I had my first visit with Dr. Mounts last week (Sept 2018) and was very pleased with Dr. Mounts knowledge and thoroughness. He asked me details of my problems about both, my neck and the lumbar region and about my health and then did a physical examination of my legs, fingers and arms. Then he showed me, side-by-side, my Xrays and MRIs and thoroughly explained reasons for the tingling and pain and his diagnosis which I will discuss with my primary physician. Thank you Dr. Mounts.

  • I wish I had seen Dr. Mounts from Day 1 of my injury. Instead, I chose a huge group with a well known surgeon. He never spent more than 10 min. at a time with me. After feeling frustrated that he wasn’t hearing me I heard about Dr. Mounts from my Physical Therapist. It was a completely different experience! His assistant was lovely, caring and so understanding. I had to take X-rays and it was so painful, his radiology assistant was amazing, so compassionate, kind and helpful. When Dr. Mounts came in he was gentle, considerate, a good listener and took his time. I never felt rushed, he did so many physical tests to make sure he was giving me the proper diagnosis. He answered every question. He listened!!! He had other patients to see but made sure I was okay and he followed up with all the paperwork I gave him from my job before lunch! They called when they said they would. I would recommend Dr. Mounts to anyone looking for a GREAT Dr. stay away from Big Orthopedic Businesses. Believe me, they are not WORTH IT!

  • Dr. Mounts really listens to your description of your problem. He does a thorough examination and develops strategies for getting to the bottom of the problem. Too many Doctor’s I’ve seen hear that I am having pain and seem eager to just get me out of the office. I have really appreciated Dr Mount’s experience, attentiveness and his true concern.

  • With previous compression fractures I saw Orthopaedic specialists at Stanford & in LA and none of them were as effective, innovative, and impactful as Dr. Mounts. I've recommended him highly. I wouldn't go to anyone else. His perspective is broad, his care top-notch...and he took care of my operating table fears of pain throughout the procedure beautifully.

  • Dr. Mounts genuinely cares about my well-being. I have a very narrow disc in my lumbar spine and have had much trouble with it for many years. Dr. Mounts thoroughly explained to me certain habits and exercises I could use to maintain the health of my spine without a need for medical intervention. I have followed his advice and it is working very well. Within weeks I could clearly feel the benefits. Thank you Dr. Mounts!

  • Before surgery, I was almost in a wheelchair barely able to walk at all with pain down my leg. After surgery I can at least walk & the pain down the leg has been relieved. Dr. Mounts is caring, compassionate and knowledgeable. I trust him & have recommended him to several others!

  • For years I suffered chronic, disabling back pain. During this period I consulted with three different doctors for the purpose of obtaining relief and/or treatment of my back on order to regain my quality of life. While all of the doctors agreed I had a decayed spinal condition none offered surgery as treatment opting instead to treat it this opioids, steroid injections, etc. On October 12, 2015, I underwent a complex lumbar spine fusion to address my chronic back pain. The surgery was performed by Doctor Troy Mounts.

    I did not go into the surgery lightly and did my due diligence investigation of Dr. Mounts prior to going forward, additionally I met with Dr. Mounts on several occasions to review my x-rays and multiple MRI’s. I appreciated the candor and confident demeanor he brought to our discussions. He spent the time necessary to address all my questions and explain the procedures in a lay person manner that made me feel I was in good hands.

    I am presently twelve months post operation. My quality of life has improved significantly as I am again able to perform the day to day tasks I had to set aside for so long. I feel fortunate to have found Dr. Mounts, a very talented and caring individual.

  • I have been seeing Dr Mounts for more than one year for a compression fracture and flat back syndrome. Surgery was not offered as a first method of treatment and I am living an active life at 84 while on Physical Therapy. Thank You Dr Mounts for a successful treatment plan that is working.

  • I have been seeing Dr Mounts for my flatback syndrome. I am 84 years old and reluctant to have surgery. Dr Mounts has me on Physical Therapy which has relieved the discomfort somewhat and permitted me to live an active life at a subdued pace. I like the fact that surgery was offered as a last resort

  • Dr. Mounts saved my job and gave me back qualit of life. I work for a large technology company and am required to work with technology a lot. On a recent trip to Pismo Beach I experienced an ATV accident and injury. I was lucky to find Dr. Mounts. A local PB Doctor misdiagnosed my injury and put me on heavy med’s. After 2 weeks of suffering and frequent in cohesion, I was threatened with termination. A local trainer connected me with this life saver.

  • I was up and walking the day of my surgery and doing laps around the hospital the next day. Was walking 1+miles per day within a week and 3 miles within 3 weeks. Great bedside manner and very dynamic. He spent a great deal of time helping me understand everything that he was going to do. Additionally, he was very accessible electronically and personally for questions after my surgery A superb addition to our Central Coast physician core.
