Review of Dr. McCormick

- in NJ |

Have you ever heard the words, “you have an intramedullary spinal cord tumor” ? Well I unfortunately did. I was shattered and did not know who to see about this. I was shattered and in excruciating pain taking multiple prescription medications to control my pain. All this with numbness and mild neurological deficits. Dr. McCormick changed all that for me; he’s an amazing surgeon. Six months after surgery I’m medication free and still improving.

Review of Dr. McCormick

-Utica, NY |

Excellent physician with a great personality. I was able to schedule an appointment and get treatment very expeditiously. It turned out to be an extremely rare tumor of the spine, but this hardly stunned Dr. McCormick! He handled it with ease and dexterity of someone who had seen a thousand of these. World class neurosurgeon! Great office staff too!

Review of Dr. McCormick

-New York, NY |

I recently had surgery by Dr. McCormack to replace 2 herniated disks in my cervical spine. I was in a precarious situation where the broken disk matter was pressed against my spinal cord so I needed surgery asap. Dr. McCormack clearly and simply explained the issues of the harm of my situation, as well as the pain involved. I knew I was with an extraordinary clinician/surgeon for the surgery. Post surgery care was just wonderful.

Review of Dr. McCormick

-Ridgewood, NJ |

I was treated by Dr. McCormick from March-June 2017. He saw me the day after I sent my radiology reports; he removed a spinal tumor ten days later. I was in a great deal of pain when I first saw him and was rapidly losing feeling and strength in my legs. Thanks to his care, my active quality of life is completely restored--I am able to run, lift weights, bike, etc. I am extremely grateful for his kindness and attentiveness to my situation.

There are no words to convey the skilll and integrity of Dr.Paul McCormick. My spinal tumor was expertly removed...the communication between team members was superb and the care post surgery excellent. This Doctor gave me back my ability to enjoy and appreciate all that's good. He's amazing

I could not have asked for a better experience. There was absolutely no wait time in Dr McCormick's office and the staff was extremely professional. I required spinal surgery and my confidence in Dr McCormick and his reassuring bedside manner made the whole experience easier.

Dr McCormick simply saves lives! This goes way beyond the (10 Hr) 4 - level ACDF & Laminectomy for cervical stenosis and correction of severe kyphosis that saved me. Dr McCormick is a gifted & brilliant neurosurgeon who has dedicated his life to saving others. Week upon week, Dr McCormick performs surgical reconstruction / mitigation of the most serious spinal conditions. Dr McCormick - Thank you for your great work and commitment !

Review of Dr. McCormick

- in Manchester-by-the-Sea, MA |

I give Dr. McCormick the very highest possible commendation. He is a top surgeon , a warm and caring man, and a leader and educator in the field of spinal neurosurgery. His Nurse Practitioner, Jane Kostadinov, and Dr. Evan Johnson, the Spine Hospital's physiotherapist, are equally excellent. I am profoundly grateful for what Dr. McCormick and his team did to alleviate my spinal stenosis, and I recommend him and his team to anyone requiring spinal surgery without any hesitation whatsoever.

Review of Dr. McCormick

- in Los Angeles, CA |

I was diagnosed with a very rare (and rather large) intramedullary spinal cord tumor in November of 2015. After consulting with six neurosurgeons, they all pointed me to Dr. McCormick at Columbia/NYP. I flew across the country to see him and immediately knew he would be the one to perform the surgery. 9 hours of neurosurgery and a 3.5 week stay in the hospital later, I flew back home to California. Within 3 months of the surgery, I was walking unassisted and nearly back to work full-time.
