Review of Dr. Prasad

- |

Dr. Prasad was seeing me about a back issue and told me what I needed to hear, he has great bedside manner and is easy to talk to. He explains everything you have concerns about and in a way that is simple to understand.

Review of Dr. Prasad

- in Yuba City, CA |

Dr. Prasad and his team are the BEST. I have had debilitating headaches due to my cervical spine for the past three years. I just finished a nine day trial with the Nevro HF10 Spinal Cord Stimulator, and we are preparing to have it permanently implanted. I did not suffer a single headache during the trial. Dr. Prasad, Jennifer, and Maritza were very informative of the benefits and risks of the Spinal Cord Stimulator. Dr. Prasad is easy to talk to and he listens to any concerns and fears you might have. I feel I am very fortunate to have Dr. Prasad performing my procedures.

Review of Dr. Prasad

- in Placerville , CA |

It's been just a year since I first met with Dr. Prasad and his team. MRIs of my lower back and neck showed severe deterioration of spinal canals and discs. The pain in my lower back and legs was crippling. Dr. Prasad clearly explained what was happening to my spinal system, how it wouldn't get better without treatment, and what my options were to relieve the pain. Dr. Prasad was so compassionate and patient. By the grace of God, I was directed to a true physician, one who cared for me more than the process. There was no feeling of being rushed through consultation, nor was I pushed for a quick decision. I knew what to expect from surgery. Given the severity of my spinal stenosis, Dr. Prasad and his team saved my life. I treasure his compassion and dedication to his patients. He is a true physician.

Review of Dr. Prasad

- in Placerville, CA |

A year ago my wife was crippled by back pain. After tests, our primary care physician referred her to Dr. Prasad. His examination revealed severe spinal stenosis in two places. He performed surgery on her lower spine which resulted in relief of her pain. Dr. Prasad utilized the latest techniques and materials to treat my wife. But his greatest gift is an old school commitment to patient care as a first priority. Together with his able assistant Dr. Jennifer Bowman, he led us through a great ordeal. I have my wife today because we met Dr. Prasad.

Dr. Prasad is amazing! Right from the very first appointment I had with him to discuss my cervical spine issues. He explained everything to me in detail while also showing me the areas of concern on my MRI. I had surgery to replace 2 discs in my neck on February 19, 2019. Everything went very well, my incision healed beautifully due to Dr. Prasads perfection. The office staff has been kind and courteous to me at all times. I highly recommend Dr. Prasad!

Review of Dr. Prasad

- in Wilton, CA |

Dr. Prasad is very skilled, kind and patient. He is a great communicator. He is delighted to explain every detail of the medical process with you without hurrying or rushing. He operated on my lower back successfully, and his work has changed the course of my life from years of severe stabbing pain to pain free. His determinations and recommendations as to what needs to be done medically has been very on point and confident. Dr. Prasad is the type of doctor that all doctors should be! A+

She really listened and was generally engaged in our conversation…I could tell she really cared! Then I met Dr. Prasad…it was determined fusing a few vertebras in my neck and r

Review of Dr. Prasad

- in Carmichael, CA |

There is nothing bad I can say about Dr Prasad. He has worked on me twice, he has fused my neck in 2014, and Sep. 5th 2016 he fused my lower back. His support staff is the best you can ask for. Jennifer Bowman who works along side with Dr Prasad is one of the best support staff he has. I would recommend him to all my friends who are having trouble with there Spine. He listens to your questions and has the answers along with Jennifer she will have answers also. Great surgeon hands down.
