Review of Dr. Thurmond

-Mifflinburg, PA |

I can't believe this doc has any stars. Zero compassion. Hopelessly disinterested. Completely disregarded my complaints of contintuing pain. When I finally switched to a different physician in the practice, not 1 but *3* RNs cheered me on with one stating that she secretly (or not so secretly) hopes that he experiences chronic, severe pain some day. So he might regret his utter disregard for his patients. It became crystal clear why he had immediate appointment availability.

Review of Dr. Kager

- in Lancaster, PA |

I loved Dr. Kager! His personality is professional and kind. He took the perfect amount of time to explain his decision and why, was so sweet to my little girl (who came with me.) He seemed appreciative of all the work I had done prior to seeing him, and I respect him as a neurosurgeon! This man is a good doctor! :)

Review of Dr. Kager

-Lancaster, PA |

I would scarcely recommend Kager to my worst enemy, never mind to a family member or friend. You are a number, not a person at Lancaster NeuroScience. You are shuttled thru the process like so much chattel, but at least you get a T-shirt. (Yeah, really.) If this is what surgeons have become in this country, then I am very disheartened. I saw this guy for all of 8 minutes for pre-surgical consult BUT DID NOT see or talk to him afterward. My next app't w/ him is in about a month. Yay. Do not use!!

Review of Dr. Thurmond

- in Mount Joy , Pa. |

Dr Thurmond, has a very poor bedside manner. He was dismissive and would not discuss any resolution to my problem. Referred by a Neurologist after having an EMG test that was diagnosed as a pinched nerve. Dr Thurmond, was 99% sure there was no pinched nerve. I asked what I should do, he had no suggestion nor did he examine me. " If it will make you happy" I'll order an MRI. Another surgeon did confirm with an xray and the MRI I have a pinched nerve. and need spinal fusion.

Review of Dr. Dziurzynski

- in Palmyra, PA |

Very caring and dedicated physician. Took her time to explain the procedure and possible complications. During the surgery, called to waiting area to reassure my family that all was well and returned later that evening to check on my condition. I couldn't have asked for a better surgeon to handle my serious medical condition.

Review of Dr. Thurmond

- in Strasburg, PA |

Dr. Thurmond performed a double spinal fusion and decompression surgery to correct a slipped vertebrae and compressed nerve in my lumbar spine. Years of low back pain has greatly improved and the severe nerve pain down the leg is finally gone. He and his team were very attentive during recovery in the hospital and for all follow-up appointments, as well. I was treated with the utmost respect and care by Dr. Thurmond, his assistant Jaclyn and the other members of his team.

Review of Dr. Monacci

- in Lancaster, PA |

I was actually miserable from my back problem before seeing Dr Monacci. He performed a number of diagnostic tests and attempted conservative treatment before proceeding with surgery. When it became apparent to him that surgery was the best option, his expert skill and terrific care actually changed my life! I was able to resume my career pain free and medication free! Now, five and a half years later, thanks to Dr Monacci, I remain pain free and active, even using a rowing machine at the gym!

Review of Dr. Thurmond

- in Lebanon, PA |

Excellent experience! Went through disc replacement surgery. From the first consult appointment, X-ray, MRI, surgery, recovery, hospital stay, physical therapy and follow-up appointment, it was an excellent experience. I highly recommend Dr. Thurmond if you are experiencing disc pain or issues.
