    Excellent. Cured my neck pain. Gave me my life back

    Dr. Faust is the only surgeon I trust with my back issues. After 2 successful surgeries (2009 & 2013) I have my life back. Dr Faust is professional, knowledgeable, trustworthy, kind and compassionate. My positive experience with him and his staff led me to recently bring my daughter for a scoliosis evaluation. Her experience, like mine, was completely successful. I'm grateful for Dr. Faust and all his help!
    Hi Ann. Thank you for leaving a great review for Dr. Faust. It is fantastic to read such a commendable review like this to let us know we are doing a great job when we put so much time and effort into being the top orthopedic care facility on Long Island.

    He's the best! I'll be building a bronze statue of him. 2nd doctor to work on my cervical spine after the first one left me high and dry. I highly recommend him! J.B.
    Hi Jeff. Thanks for the great review for Dr. Faust. It's great to hear when we meet expectations. Have a great day!

    This Doctor has a lot to desire when it comes to taking on patients. My experience with the Dr is that he has no feelings for the patients and is eager to take on new patients with out doing any of the leg work with the other doctors that are treating the patient when it comes to test results and speaking to the PCP I DO NOT RECOMEND THIS Doctor to anyone out there.

    after not being explained exact procedure that he wanted to do, insurance denied procedure, was told by Dr. Faust and his assistant that he would appeal denial, was never called back to keep informed, I then called insurance company to be told that no one had appealed the claim, I called back the office, left multiple messages to never hear back from anyone.
