Neurosurgery reviews in Santa Monica

    Duncan McBride MD
    Dr. McBride was one of three surgeons I interviewed before making the decision to have my second cervical spine surgery. I knew immediately he was the surgeon for me. His calm demeanor and apparent expertise put me at ease from the start. He thoroughly explained my problem and the surgical solution along with possible complications and side effects. Questions that arose between scheduling and surgery were answered in detail by a very prompt callback. The appliance from my first surgery twenty years ago had to be removed to make room for the new one. That proved to be a very difficult task for him, taking hours instead of the 10 minutes anticipated. To this day I am amazed at my lack of pain after this surgery���even with the complication. I was walking in my neighborhood the very next day when I got home from the hospital. I didn���t need pain pills for the surgery, but I have to admit it was difficult to sleep because of the neck brace. Now being fused from C3 through C7, I had a very difficult time finding the right pillow, but finally settled on the contour Tempurpedic. Most stores will allow you to try pillows for a few days and return them undamaged if necessary, thank goodness. No more pain down my left arm or neck and no more daily discogenic headaches. My life has improved immensely. I���m able to enjoy gardening again and so many simple tasks requiring bending over that I used to dread. Thank you Dr. McBride.

    Filler, Dr. Aaron G.
    Overall - this was awful.

    The office appointment was silly. They bill ridiculous amounts to people in need with some shady treatments. They recommended I get a procedure in office with them (they told me they were the only local ones that did this nerve scan) and some other scan. Their procedure was _thousands_ out of pocket. I asked if it didn't make sense to get the other diagnostic scan first (that insurance covered) so they agreed. Why I had to be the one asking the question is clear they are financially motivated over what's best for the patients pocketbook. Once those results came back they said I didn't need the other scan. Had I not asked the question I would have been out of pocket ~$5000+ - all saved by me questioning the doctors advice. Then - they billed me $50 for simply calling me to tell me my test results were negative. Ridiculous and never disclosed they did this sort of billing. I brought the issue up to billing in a message and received no call back. I said I didn't feel I owed a portion of the office visit as this was just silly and received several very very nasty emails from the doctor and the office manager with crazy stories of how I must be conspiring to rip them off or something stupid along those lines. I've never, ever , ever , ever seen such unprofessionalism from a medical office. I have great relationships with all of my doctors. I do not recommend going to them _ at all_ - try someone else. I was far happier with the doctor I went to after this awful practice. This is my personal experience with them and my recommendation is not to try them.

    They were very good. I am still recovering from the spine operation. He has a lot of experience. He is a published author. He is extremely qualified in his field.
