    Swaid Swaid MD
    Two other doctors before him wanted to wait a couple of months before surgery and one wanted to just give me a shot.  When I went to Dr. Swaid he was suggesting a shorter wait before the surgery.  He wanted to know everything before we went in for surgery.  He wanted lots of pictures and wanted his team to be prepared too.  He also diagnosed another issue in my vertebrae while he doing this surgery as well.  Everything went perfect.  He's the kind of doctor you only have to go to once, as he fixes everything right the first time.

    He is one of the best. The office staff is very efficient. I do not have anything bad to say. I do not have to wait too long. He can be kind of hard to get into but I can get in quickly.

    Dr. Pritchard is an excellent surgeon with an impressive resume. He tells it like he see it.  That is what I want in a doctor not someone who sugar coats things.  He evaluated me, ran test and MRIs to confirm and told me what he thought.  He took time to answer all my questions and made sure I understood what he was seeing by educating me on how he was reading the MRIs.

    I saw Dr. Thomas Wilson and he thought I was a great candidate for a nerve block. He said even if that did not work, he could do a posterior discectomy without fusion. He referred me to Dr. Jeremy Barlow at St. Vincent's Neurosurgical Center for the nerve blocks. He told me to call him about 2 weeks after the second block to give him an update. I have had 2 nerve blocks and I am definitely better. I called the office and spoke with his nurse and gave her my update. She discussed with Dr. Wilson and called me back the same day. She explained the reason for some of my post procedure symptoms. She said to call back in another month to give them another update. I thought it was great that I didn't have to go back into the office for that.

    Dr. Hadley reviewed my MRI and first directed that I try physical therapy. After working with an excellent therapist, and getting interim treatments, I could get no resolution. Dr. Hadley ultimately took me to surgery to do a discectomy at L4-5. As to outcome, I must say that it takes awhile to recover from this kind of surgery (even at the young age of 50!), but I am a poster case for the repair. I am back to playing golf and tennis and other activities. Hadley is a very busy, nationally-renowned neurosurgeon, and yes he is of course very busy. Nonetheless, he is meticulous in his attention to every detail and in communicating with his patient. As noted above, this was unfortunately my second operation. My first, to repair my neck, was even more satisfactory. My right arm had become suddenly weak and very painful. Since repair of this disc, I have had zero -- zero -- issues in my neck and arm. I know every outcome cannot be as good as my experiences, but I have trust in Dr. Hadley's ability to make the right call and to execute the plan as well as can be done.

    I like his bedside manner and I like how he explains things thoroughly. I also like that what he chooses for you as a patient is what he would do for his own family and I like that he was the chief resident at the hospital where he came from. He's a neurosurgeon and sometimes they are not known for a good bedside manner because they're neurosurgeons, but he has a great bedside manner plus he's well trained and I like him. He has a wonderful nurse that works alongside him that is very responsive if he needs something. His office staff is really good about returning calls and getting messages to him about things that you need if you had surgery or whatever. Nurse Carolyn is really good about checking on you. He has a nice office.

    Dr. Zenko Hrynkiw was a pretty good neurologist. He is smart and his office staff was great. I would see him again in the future.

    MRI took several weeks to process in-network. (my wife had an MRI at the same hospital and was called less than a week after by her specialist) Very hard to get a timely appointment. Nearly impossible to talk to an actual person on the phone. PA did return calls promptly, but was generally unsympathetic to my concerns. At my first physical therapy appointment, the therapist had the right file, but another patient's chart/history was mixed in with mine. Consultation with surgeon is partly done in semi-public space which I found distracting when trying to ask questions. Procedures were not explained to me. I had to constantly ask and quot;what is that?and quot; There seemed to be an assumption on those giving care that I was completely familiar with jargon and procedures. I really had to be on my toes, even after having done considerable research prior to my appointments. In short, actual treatment was competent, but done in an environment and with the same sensitivity and care as a DMV. This practice is too large and the staff spread too thin for timely and effective service! Nearly four months passed from initial PCare visit to actual treatment.

    His bedside manner was good and he did diagnose my problem correctly but the treatment plan made me uncomfortable because he immediately jumped to surgery. I am okay with surgery if I need it but I don't want it to be the first alternative.

    Thomas Staner MD
    Went to the pain clinic that he recommended. Have been going there for almost 3 years with varying levels of success - failed procedures (nerve blocks, etc), but some success with a combination of meds. However, in May 2010, went to see Dr. Staner for a horrendous headache and nausea that I'd had that kept me in bed for a week and had caused balance problems as well. Again, he told me there was nothing he could do and he thought I had occipital neuraglia, and balance issues were related to all the meds I was taking. I asked him if he though he needed to run more tests based on this new and severe escalation of the problem and he said no, he had done an MRI in Dec 2009, and everything was fine.Asked another doctor whom I know and trust to recommend a neurologist, and went to see him. I had collected all medical records from Dr. Staner as well as from pain mgmt clinic. When I asked him about occipital neuralgia, he said that wasn't what was wrong, because that would be sharp, shooting, almost burning type pain, and that's not what I was experiencing. He asked if I had any relatives with brain issue - stokes, etc (something never asked by other clinic). He examined me and noticed that one pupil was different size than another and that my balance was off. He immediately scheduled me for an MRA (like an MRI, but they look at arteries in your brain). I told him I'd had tests in Dec, but he told me he'd looked at all the films I brought him and that I hadn't had any brain tests since 2007. When test results came back, I was told I had a small aneurysm and referred to neurosurgeon at UAB for followup. And I couldn't even get Staner to look at me! After further testing by UAB (they did a 3D CTA - which produces amazingly clear results), it was determined that I didnt have an aneurysm. However, new doctor continues to work with me to try to find an answer. He actually listens and responds to what I am telling him. Staner's entire focus was on limited test results, not on what I was telling him about my pain. Failed to listen to me (the patient) so there was no way he could be helpful.
