Dr. Mahmoud is awesome! I suffered for 7 years due to L5S1 broken bone, he did a cage and back fusion surgery 6 months ago. Immediately upon waking up from surgery and walking 4 hours post surgery I was in soooo much less pain then I had for the prior 7 years. I was off all pain meds in 4...more

Dr Mahmoud was very compassionate and listened intently to my symptoms and complaint. His bedside manner and follow up care after surgery was wonderful. Nate even called me at home after the surgery. I was so impressed.
