    Had neurosurgery with Dr. Banks and am now mostly blind. It is hard to get real information from Dr. Banks, as he is a very casual Dr. and doesn't take the time to explain things really well. I was discharged from the hospital after surgery and re-admitted the next day because I was in such a bad condition.

    - in Athens AL |

    I was barely able to walk because of a rupture disc that was pressing on the nerve. I had extreme pain from that I thought would never end. Finally, after talking to a friend, she recommend that I see her doctor, Dr. Jason Banks. Saw him on a Wednesday & had surgery the next day!! After waking up from surgery I saw immediate relief! My feet hit the ground and I wasn't in that excruciating pain as I was before!! I recommend this man to everyone! Thanks dr.!! ??
