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!

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 weeks and haven't needed them since. Dr. has a great bedside manner and works with some great doctors. My surgery required two other surgeons, the teams work together track record was really impressive.

Doctor Mahmoud was very open and honest with what he thought needed to be done in my situation. He took the time to explain everything to me and ask if I had any questions. He helped me get the surgery done in a timely manner and made sure that I had the exercises needed to strengthen my neck, so that I could get back to helping my family and teaching as soon as possible.

Dr. Mahmoud is one of the finest physicians I know. I had a few surgons work on me and delt with surgons who worked with family and he has the best bedside manor along with how he explains what he's going to do, what the outcome may be, what can go wrong and all in a way that anyone can understand. I told him he explains fine print in laymans terms. I had major surgery and after many months of dealing with pain, when I woke from surgery, I had instant relief in my leg and back is coming along ok

Dr. Mahmoud was a wonderful surgeon to work with. He clearly explained my condition and why surgery was necessary to correct it. He answered all my questions and has a very calming and competent presence about him. After my surgery he followed up me numerous times that day and the next. He has an excellent bedside manner and made me feel good about how the surgery went and my recovery. I have seen Dr. Mahmoud for multiple follow up appointments and he continues to be a great doctor to work with

I had cervical spine surgery two years ago; however, I continued to have numbness in my finger and I just didn't feel right. After not being satisfied with my surgeon, my husband and I went to see Dr. Mahmoud. He took the time to REALLY talk to us and explained what was happening. We were very impressed and felt so comfortable that we knew he was what we wanted in a surgeon. Dr. Mahmoud even called me to see if I had any questions! Dr.'s asst. Nathan Tapio, APNP, CNOR was also wonderful!
