Review of Dr. Hanna

- in FL |

After being referred to Dr. Hanna from my spine surgeon I had to wait one month to get in for an appointment. Then he kept me waiting 2 hours past my appointment time and I still hadn't seen him. When I got up and went to leave I asked the nurses if that was normal and they said he usually keeps his patients waiting LONGER 2-3 hours past appointment times. News flash...your not the only person whose time is valuable. If you are that booked stop taking new patients.

Review of Dr. Webb

- in Indian Rocks beach, FL |

Dr Webb quickly and accurately diagnosed my condition as multiple herniated cervical discs in my neck, Within 1 week he had me scheduled for surgery and performed a cervical disc fusion of 4 discs in my neck and a laminectomy . After 4 weeks the initial pain from the procedures had eased, I have been pain free for the past 3 1/2 years. with NO problems what so ever, only slight loss of head rotations due to the fusion. 100% satisfied

I saw Dr Koebbe for surgery on a herniated disc at L5-S1. Two days post surgery I was off pain meds and one week post surgery I was completely pain free! I highly recommend him!

Review of Dr. Kowalski

- in Clearwater, FL |

I’ve had three lumbar surgeries from 2/27/2014 to 3/27/2016. I also was infected by a Staph infection at Largo Medical hospital. I thought I was going to die. I was told that if the antibiotics did not clear up the infection that all the hardware in my back that Dr. Kowalski put in from my L2-3 to S1 would have to be removed. Can you imagine? I’m still in excruciating pain and not sure how long I can go on like this. I know there are horror stories with many back surgeries i thought Kowalski....

Review of Dr. Strand

- in Norfolk |

Dr. Strand has helped me more than I can even express in words. After many months if misery, he identified a severely herniated disc and immediately began treatment. He identified that physical therapy wouldn't help, and scheduled me for a steroid epidural. The epidurals gave little relief, so he referred me to a neurosurgeon. I appreciate that he hasn't wasted my time and has focused on getting me relief. I highly recommend him!!!

Review of Dr. Figueroa

-Clearwater, FL |

Dr Figueroa was the most demeaning and impatient doctor I have ever seen. He has no empathy whatsoever. Did not listen, talked over me when he asked me questions, was borderline insulting. DO NOT go to this doctor if you are seeking help and a good experience. I waited 50 min after my appointment time, then I got a bill for over $200 after he did absolutely nothing and charged my insurance $1200. He is rude, rude, rude. Good thing I found a better neurologist!

Review of Dr. Gerges

- in Largo, florida |

My sister Wanda H is Dr Gerges patient. For yrs i know my sister better than any body she has never used drug's he said she's positive on drugs,that affected her emotionally.he has a lack of trust he should take people seriously he gets lots of money just to see her for a minute or two Should be understanding and see what went wrong but instead he ignores her and keeps looking his computer,he asks her husband who is veteran and has mental issues thinking that she lied. So unprofessional of him

Review of Dr. Koebbe


Dr. Koebbe is good at diagnosis, surgical procedures, however I was not pleased with his post op care. He seemed almost annoyed that a patient didn't have a miraculous experience from him. He was rude and visibly annoyed simply because I was still in pain. Doctors that are making a killing on patients should not treat patients in this manner. I was very disappointed in his behavior and very surprised as well. I may have just caught him on a bad day but it stuck in my mind.
