What People Say About Dr. Alfred Ogden, MD

I had a serious MRI with anesthesia on my Thoracic for a Syrinx which Dr. Ogden presumed was inoperable prior to performing the MRI. The procedure was on 4/25, and it's 4 weeks later & HE'S NOT CONTACTED ME WITH RESULTS. For 3 weeks I've reached out to him via emails and calls to both of his offices, to NO AVAIL. Once he was with a patient, other times he was in his NJ office & was unable to access his NY files (really?). The receptionist was unable to tell me when he would be back in NY since the doctor had a very busy schedule. Clearly, he's too busy to follow up with his patients! I'm completely stressed about these results, finding a tumor would be my best case scenario, with other far dire possibilities. I've reviewed the Patient Bill of Rights & he's violated at least 5 of them. I don't have any recourse except to write to the Patient Services Admin. and file a complaint, but I am reluctant to do that. This non-communicative behavior is insensitive. Why am I not important to him?

Dr. Ogden is a caring,bright and personable neurosurgeon. I visited his office for a disc issue that a previous MD suggested would be quite difficult to treat. Dr. Ogden reviewed the MRI's, answered all of my questions and put me at ease. He performed the surgery which went well and pain relief was almost instant. I am so grateful for his approach and return to health. He is a gifted surgeon.He is my first choice for any back related issues.

I recently had a microdiscectomy by Dr. Ogden and it could not have been smoother or more professional. I walked out of the hospital the same evening as the surgery. His administrators, medical assistants, know what they are doing and provide all the information you need. Dr. Ogden was the only doctor that gave me a full physical assessment instead of just reading the MRI's. I woke up from the surgery nerve-pain free after a year of pain. He is confident, cautious, and inspires trust.

I spent the last 18 months going through a revolving door of cervical epidural injections and physical therapy, which provided intermittent and varying levels of relief from the SEVERE radicular pain in my shoulder blade region. Feeling I needed a fresh view, I found Dr. Ogden in my in-network providers, and his credentials jumped off the page. In one visit he confidently determined an appropriate surgical approach, executed it, and the 4 weeks since have been my best in 18 months. Life saver!

From my appointment with Dr. Ogden, I found him to be Kind, caring, and a great listener. He spent quality time with me. Paid keen attention to details. No surprise that he is an expert in his field and extremely knowledgeable. This is so very important when you are truly needing the correct diagnosis. He's excellent!
