Review of Dr. Entwistle

My wife had 2 brain aneurysms, one ruptured, Dr. Entwistle did surgery and repaired both using the coiling technique. My wife has fully recovered and is doing amazing. I thank God and Dr. Entwistle everyday for giving my wife back to me and my boys. Stacey Hicks C.E.O. Princeton Rescue Squad

Review of Dr. Olasunkanmi

-

Dr Olasunkanmi (Dr.O) is our hero. My husband had a brain tumor (glioblastoma). Dr O did a craneotomy on him on Oct 31 to remove a tumor and confirmed the diagnosis - Glioblastoma. He is an excellent surgeon with the compassion you would want in a situation like this. There was not a day that went by that he didn't stop in to see us while my husband was in the hosptial. And, that was quite a while. He has a certain bed side manner and humor that puts you at ease . Highly recommed him

He did surgery on my back and neck. I have had great results. I have recommended him to a lot of people. He explained everything to me so I could understand it. I highly recommend him.

Review of Dr. Howes

-Roanoke, VA |

Had little to no time to make sure surgery was done correctly. Left hospital immediately. Didn't make sure I came out of recovery. Laid in hospital for 6 days in excruciating pain with not one visit from him. Hospital told me I either had to go home or to a nursing home. I could no longer stay there. I opted for home. I had to go back for more back surgery 1 month later because he missed something. Still in extreme pain & numbness 4 month later.

Review of Dr. Entwistle

- in martinsville, VA |

spent good amount of time going over mri on first visit and explaining what needed to be done. Told me that if I done what he told me to do and what not to do,I would be back to good in about 90 days. Went back for 2nd visit less than 6 weeks after surgery and was told not to come back unless i had a problem. Start slowly getting back in shape over next 60 or so days and should be back to normal then. Would and have recommended Dr. Entwistle to any and all.

Review of Dr. Howes

- in Buena Vista, VA |

My first impression of Dr. Howes was that he is extremely thorough and pulls no punches. He did my surgery and made sure I completely understood what the procedure was going to be on my neck. After surgery, he came to check on me at least three times. I was completely confident in his ability and knowledge. I would highly recommend him to anyone. I need more surgery on my back and will not hesitate to go to him again. He and his entire team are second to none!

Review of Dr. Howes

- in Roanoke, VA |

Dr Howes operated on my back in December 2017. He removed over 30 years of severe back pain. I had not been able to lay on my back at all before the surgery. When I did lay on my back, like in a doctor’s office, I couldn’t get up by myself and then couldn’t walk right away.... I will shout it from the rooftops!!! Dr.Howes is the BEST neurosurgeon. I tell everyone who will listen how he took away my back pain.
