Review of Dr. Walkup

- in Acworth, GA |

I received good treatment when I needed surgery from Dr. Walkup. Now I urgently need a revision to that surgery. My Medicare plan says Dr. Walkup is a provider, but his office says he has just decided he no longer accepts any Medicare patients. I get that. That is his decision. What I don't get is that even an existing patient will not be seen unless I pay out of my own pocket. Now I am searching for a doctor who hopefully puts the patient's needs over the almighty $.

Review of Dr. Walkup

-

Excellent. Dr. Walkup steered me away from the major back surgery and recommended an alternative treatment known as a spinal cord stimulator. The device has provided me with a good amount of pain relief and without the long surgery and long recovery. Ron in Canton, GA

Review of Dr. Tomaras

-

I had a microsdiscectomy for a far lateral disc herniation at L4/L5 by Dr. Tamaras and I am worse off than I was before the surgery. I got another MRI five weeks after surgery which showed residual herniation that was not completely removed. Dr Tomaras elected to go with a midline approach which involved removing a fair amount of my facet joint. After consulting with two other neurosurgeons, the proper route would have been to go lateral. This would have preserved my facet joint and the herniation would have been much easier to get to. I realize there are multiple ways to approach different things but when two other neurosurgeons say "you have a direct path to the herniation going laterally and you would not have to sacrifice the facet joint”,  and “it would be very hard to get to the herniation with a midline approach”, I cannot wrack my brain as to why he would even consider not going the lateral route. From what I understand, the only reason a surgeon usually goes medial is they don

Review of Dr. Tomaras

- in GA |

I had a ruptured disc in my neck which was causing lots of pain and numbness in my right arm. PT and an epidural only helped some. I saw Dr. Tomaras at Polaris and he recommended that I undergo an artificial disc replacement. This was new to me -- I had heard about fusions before. He said I was a good candidate for a replacement and that it is much better procedure for the patient. I did some research and decided to go ahead. I have only positive things to say. Amazingly, this surgery is a 45-minute outpatient procedure. There is some pain and discomfort for the first few days afterwards, but it's not bad at all. And my neck/arm pain is completely gone. Of course, long-term outcome and prognosis is most important, but I have every reason to believe it will be good. Dr. Tomaras was exceptionally personable and took the time to explain the procedure and talk with me about it. I think he's a great surgeon too from all that I learned about him.

Review of Dr. Morrison III

- in Marietta, GA |

My experience with Dr. Morrison and his staff for spinal surgery to correct spinal stenosis and scoliosis was exceptional. Dr. Morrison was kind, considerate, informative, and technologically excellent. His staff of physician assistants, nurses, and office personnel always made me feel as though my concerns were their concerns. I highly recommend that anyone with surgical issues involving the spine, to seek care with Dr. Morrison and Polaris Spine and Neurosurgery Center. -Susan Yilling

Dr. Morrison performed my spinal fusion surgery (T9-S1) on 2/8/16. I am still playing golf, riding bikes, working out and swimming without issues. I am totally pain-free and have Dr. Morrison to thank for it. He's the best!!

Review of Dr. Mangrum

-

Dr. Mangrum is an excellent doctor, my son had a procedure done recently and the results were a dramatic difference from his last physician. Dr. Mangrum’s straight forward diagnosis was exceptional. He is also kind, patient, and an active listener, asking questions and providing feedback while he pinpoints the problem, and offers treatment options. I would not go to any other doctor for any back issues. I feel that we are fortunate to have him here in Georgia.

Review of Dr. Walkup

- in Ellenwood, GA |

My first office visit! Front desk Awesome, Friendly and fast! No writing on several pages of a questionnaire! They gave me a tablet. I pressed the correct answer! Done deal! In the exam room and seen by a physician in under 10 minutes! Examined, shown X-ray of problem areas, explained the reasons for my pain and given options for relief. I was listened to and encouraged to ask questions! First impression! 5 stars! Surgery for me is most likely.. heck I say Polaris Let’s Get This Party Started!
