Review of Dr. Smith

-Chicago, IL |

I was permanently injured after a discectomy laminectomy in 2015 by Dr Zachary Smith. He cut into my Dural / thecal sac, permanently injuring my spinal nerve roots. A surgical reapair also in 2015 caused Arachnoiditis and sensory nerve loss in both legs and feet. In Oct. 2016 a third surgery at Mayo clinic became necessary for I lost control of my bowl and bladder functions. I am no longer able to work and I am on long term disability because of this. Please. Do not undergo surgery with Dr Smith

Review of Dr. Ganju

- in South Bend |

I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Ganju. I was referred to her by one of her patients when 2 different doctors wanted to operate on my back to relieve debilitating pain that had put me in a wheelchair. Dr. Ganju identified a cyst in my vertebrate that was causing the pain & chose the least invasive procedure to burst it. Two days later I was walking normally & I have not had a problem since. Dr. Ganju is simply the BEST! She is highly competent, very compassionate, confident & efficient!

Review of Dr. Dahdaleh

- in Highland Park.IL |

Dr. Dahdaleh removed a large spinal schwanoma in a 6-hour operation. He was always reassuring and approachable. His skill is incredible and I am recovering really well. He was attentive and I feel confident that I was in the best possible hands.

Review of Dr. Smith

- |

I never thought i’d ever be out of back pain. Dr Smith did a fusion on my L4-L5 in October of 2016 and I am totally pain free! I wish I can convey how bad my back has been since I bent a wrong way and felt a pop.. That was 2008 and after a laminectomy and discectomy in 2009, I had no relief. He is personable and does not have that “God complex” as many surgeons do. Just an outstanding man- period.

Review of Dr. Ganju

Arrogant and dismissive-in denial about failed surgery. Do not trust her with your spine.

Review of Dr. Ganju

- in Pontiac, IL |

Dr. Ganju was very nice and kind. She is very intelligent and experienced. I would highly recommend her. She went out of her way to schedule everything I needed for surgery the same day so we wouldn't have to make another trip up there before surgery. I will have my surgery soon and after the office visit with her, I trust her with my life and well-being. Will post again after neck surgery.

Review of Dr. Cybulski

- |

This review is on behalf of my father who has been Dr. Cybulski's patient since 2015. I have attended about 90% of dad's appointments with Dr. Cybulski. Dr. Cybulski is an excellent physician; very approachable and understanding. He is able to explain in detail and address any concerns. My dad has had two back surgeries since 2015 and will likely have another before the end of 2017. My dad's back is quite messed up but Dr. Cybulski is confident my dad will get well.

Review of Dr. Smith

- in Chicago, IL |

I could'nt have asked for a better neurosurgeon for my Father. My Dad is in much less pain and has the ability to walk, without struggle as he had. Dr. Smith did a great job explaining the entire surgery. While my Father was hospitalized he came everyday to see the progress. When I was in the waiting area, Dr. Smith took time to explain to me (his daughter)what was going and put me to ease knowing surgery was going as planned.Can't thank enough to Dr. Smith and his team. Forever great full!

Review of Dr. Dahdaleh

- in Plainfield, IL |

I saw Dr D for a '2nd opinion' (4th opinion actually). He was extremely thorough, knowledgeable, and patient. I had numerous questions and he answered them all in full detail. While I know he is busy, it felt as if I was his only patient. He speaks very clearly, and in terms that the average person can easily understand. I also appreciate that he wants to share my case with a group of other surgeons before making a final recommendation. I feel extremely confident putting my health in his hands.
