Review of Dr. Kaiser

- in Sarasota, FL |

I had ACDF spine surgery with Dr. Kaiser on February 14, 2018. Words cannot express my appreciation for the knowledge, skill, expertise and bed side manner of Dr. Kaiser. He is an exceptionally skilled and dedicated surgeon who cares for his patients overall well being. He is patient, he listens to you and he explains in detail what the problems are and just how he will go about correcting those problems. He is a gem and I will always be thankful to him for how he helped improve my life.

Review of Dr. Kaiser

I feel very fortunate to have found Dr. Kaiser. He is a consummate professional and spent the time to review my condition (he didn't want to know what other doctors had said, which was refreshing) and outline the various treatment procedures and options. I did elect to have surgery to relieve my pain, and the whole process—hospital, surgery, recovery, etc.—couldn't have gone better. I am now on a regimen of physical therapy and my prognosis is good—a far cry from weeks of pain and uncertainty.

Microdisectomy - Lower Lumbar Dr. Kaiser and the Columbia team were amazing. Pre-Op was explained clearly, surgery went very well and the follow up has been thorough. I am currently in the PT phase and doing well. Highly recommend Dr. Kaiser and his team.

My husband had a pinch nerve issue for 1.5 years. After Physical therapy, meds and Pain management, the orthopedic recommended surgery for my husband. After a lot of research and recommendations, we wanted to see Dr. Kaiser and so glad that we did. He is an amazing neurosurgeon and so grateful for the best care. Within 1 week of surgery, my husband felt so much better. Dr Kaiser has excellent bed side manners and very knowledgable. Dr Kaiser's staff are great, A+ Service.

Review of Dr. Kaiser

- in Verona, NJ |

I experienced an exceedingly positive outcome from the lumbar laminectomy surgery performed recently by Dr. Michael G. Kaiser. He is a very skilled & compassionate neurosurgeon, who took the time to listen to all my health issues, complaints and questions. I felt very comfortable in his presence. He and his staff are very thorough, efficient, and caring. The post surgery follow up care was excellent as well. I will always hold him in high regard and will highly recommend to others.

Review of Dr. Kaiser

- in Pearl River, NY |

Dr Kaiser's office was amazing. They literally got me my initial appointment immediately. The office was very friendly, patient and accommodating. I was in surgery within 3 days. The hospital team that cared for me, perfect. Call it lucky but I was on my way to no more bulging disk! No more back pain! I was in and out in one day. The staff called to check on me twice while I was home and the one time during my recovery that I needed to talk to Dr Kaiser, he called me himself! Best experience.

Review of Dr. Kaiser

- in Oakland, NJ |

From the moment I spoke to my first contact, through scheduling and my hospital stay, I could not have asked for a better experience. Dr. Kaiser and his entire team (especially Vivian and Rosemary) were extremely friendly, helpful and courteous. The lumbar laminectomy to remove a tumor from my spine went extremely well and my recovery has gone better then I expected. During my 5 day hospital stay, all the doctor's assistants and care givers were very knowledgeable and professional.
