Review of Dr. DeCastro

- in Beaufort, SC |

Dr DeCastro was referred to me by a friend in Macon, GA. I was skeptical of another neurosurgery because I had already had two and did not have any space in my neck for a third one. I had seen doctors in Atlanta and was not comfortable with their diagnosis. Dr DeCastro was able to look at a previous MRI and immediately determine what I needed to alleviate the excruciating pain and get on with my life. His medical staff was extremely professional and patients oriented.

Review of Dr. DeCastro

- in MACON, GA |

My dad is 85 years old and had spinal stenosis at L3,4 and 5. 2 other MDs told him he would have to undergo extensive back surgery to get relief. When I talked to Dr. DeCastro, it was a different story. His understanding and compassion for my elderly dad was incredibly refreshing. Not to mention, he was able to do the surgery arthroscopically and my dad was up and about within 2 weeks WITH NO PAIN!!!! Highly recommend Dr. DeCastro. Salt of the earth. Wonderfully gifted surgeon. just amazing!

Review of Dr. Rowe

- in Macon, GA |

Over the past 6 years DR ROWE has performed 2 different types of surgery on me. In 2012 he did a 3 level neck surgery on me, with fantastic results.I have had no problems at all and I am so grateful to him and his great staff. Then, this past August, DR ROWE performed 3 level back surgery on me. This also has rendered me more quality of a good healthy life and has given me more strength and stability than I ever thought would be possible. I would highly recommend him if you have Spine Issues.

Review of Dr. DeCastro

- in Macon, GA |

Dr. DeCastro is amazing! Not only do I work for him in the operating room as his RN, I am also a patient. Dr. DeCastro performed a lumbar fusion TLIF with Mazor on me last year. Before that I could barely walk due to severe back and leg pain. Now, I am pain free and more active than ever. He exhibits kindness in all he does and I watch his patients do so well after surgery. I am very thankful and highly recommend him as a neurosurgeon.

Review of Dr. DeCastro

- in Macon, GA |

Dr. DeCastro is very caring with a GREAT bedside manner. He took his time to listen to me, he reviewed my past medical history before I was seen and had a good understanding of my issues. He did not rush me in and out. I highly recommend him to any one needing a neurosurgeon.

Review of Dr. DeCastro

- in Macon |

MY RESPONSE TO AN INVITATION TO THE PAYIENT PORTAL FOR THIS FACILITY: Please do not contact me again. When I phoned your facility for an initial appointment I was thrilled that FINALLY there was someone who could provide some relief for my daily SI joint dysfunction and sciatica. Though your office clearly indicated that Dr. DeCastro did SI joint fusions, today I wasted over three hours of my personal time, a $60.00 co-pay AND literally hobbled up to your facility on a fractured heel to fin

Review of Dr. DeCastro

- in Malvern, AR |

He withheld information about my father's medical condition before surgery. My father had an aneurysm that was an incidental find. This Dr did well in regards to the surgery. However, we learned after he left that my father had vascular dementia. We have lived a nightmare in the last 11 months.

Review of Dr. Grigorian

- in Macon, GA |

I went to ER upon my family physicians request because an X-ray came back bad. I did not want to go but they insisted. I had fallen in the rain and could barely get to ER. I had waited several days but the pain was unbearable. After, more X-rays a CT scan and labs they admitted me right away and then did a MRI. I had a very bad ruptured disc and other problems. I had people called in off duty with the Doctor, performed my surgery, and I was healed immediately. A Miracle worker for sure. Blessed!

Review of Dr. Robinson Jr

- |

Dr. Robinson was a blessing to me. I broke my neck in three places and was seen by Dr. Robinson in the hospital for three days and then in his office a month later. I really believe my quick recovery was due to him and his excellent staff at GNI. I would highly recommend him to anyone that has spine issues like myself. He very kind and very thorough and really cared about my care as a person and not a number. Awesome job Dr. Robinson !!!!
