I hate so bad that he has moved! Novant messed up when they let this Dr slip through their hands! I had 3 month follow up today at the Winston office and there is no comparison to Dr. Mahmoud! He is so much more personal and never makes you feel like you're in and out of his office quickly. He talks to you, explains procedures and protocol to you, but most of all, he listens to his patients! Love love love him! So glad I got my surgery in before he left! I will travel to NY if I ever need surgery again! No comparison!

I had a serious neck surgery and every step of the way, Dr. Mahmoud and his staff made a very difficult time a lot less scary. He shows a great deal of care for his patients. He will often have to reschedule appointments, but he does so because he is fitting in urgent matters and surgeries. His staff and office have always been very pleasant and understanding. I had a reaction to something after my surgery and he saw me on Christmas Eve to make sure that I was going to be ok and that I had the necessary supplied to completely and effectively recover. He has never shown anything but complete care for his patients. He is often very busy but he never makes you feel like you aren't worth his time. He is a rare and appreciated doctor.

I’m going to tell about my experience and visits with Dr.Mahmoud. I have been seeing him at Novant Brain and Spine center in Hickory N.C. He treated me for my chronic neck pain. And he treated me with my back problems. He performed surgery on me in December and I tell you this doctor and his staff are by far second to none. And just want to let Novant Health know that they are loosing a very very good doctor get away. I also told that Novant was closing the Hickory office. And leaving there patients out and trying to find another Neurosurgeon with out having to weeks and or months just to get an appointment. So good luck to Dr. Mahmoud and his staff. Thank you Dr.Mahmoud.

Dr Mahmoud is an exceptional neurosurgeon. His bedside manner & in office manner go beyond what is expected. He & his staff always go out of their way showing concern & attentiveness to my problems or concerns. They take the time I need to explain any concerns I have. I never feel rushed or that I am a bother. I highly recommend Dr. Mahmoud.

Dr. Mahmoud did a total cervical fusion C3-C7 on me! I had many issues prior to my surgery! He is so kind ,caring, down to earth dr I have ever been to! My surgery was a total success! My history of past failed surgery had given me problems for well over a year! Dr. Mahmoud nailed it! My neck problem should have been found long before I ever went to Dr. Mahmoud! If you need an excellent surgeon please see him!

This was our initial visit with Dr. Mahmoud. Our total experience was excellent. We had a list of concerns and Bridgette Cook, PA listened to each and every one. Then Dr. Mahmoud answered every question we had and administered a thorough exam. After 2 years of excruciating pain, we are confident that we have found the one to help us figure out what's going on.

Dr. Mahmoud is a caring and understanding physician. He takes the time to explain all questions, mostly with graphics that are easy to understand. While I haven't had to have surgery, he has explained my options and has set-up the appropriate physical therapy for my issue. He has made personal follow-up phone calls to me. His staff is incredible! Each of them are friendly, helpful and most of all understanding. He is a great addition to Hickory!
