I have been dealing with extreme back pain for 2 1/2 years and have undergone every treatment available in order to avoid surgery. After meeting with Dr Amar and his staff, I decided to to ahead with surgery. I am a few weeks post operation and I feel amazing! Dr Amar and his staff are incredibly empathetic and very helpful in all aspects of care. I would recommend Dr Amar 100 percent!

I would not recommend Dr. Amar Rajadhyaksha. I took a fall at work and I was sent to see Dr. Rajadhyaksha after having an MRI done of the Cervical Spine area. He did not explain what the MRI was showing. On the second visit he told me there was nothing wrong with my neck. I tried to explain my discomfort, he told me to be quiet, that he was the doctor. He repeatedly told me to be quiet and would not listen to my explanation. I have 3 herniated discs This doctor is extremely unprofessional.

Dr. Amar Rajadhyaksha, Has performed spinal surgery on several of my friends and everyone just raves about his level of care and the outstanding results they've experienced. I am also a happy patient but chose to skip survey however I've decided to proceed and am lucky to have such confidence going in. I Highly recommend Dr. Amar Rajadhyaksha.

Puedo decir que el Dr. Amar es un excelente y muy profesional en su ramo. Yo tenia dos hernias discales que me causaban muchas molestias y algunos impedimentos. Despues de la cirugia cervical que el Dr. Amar realizo en mi apenas dos semanas antes, siento que mi cuello ya no me molesta y mi brazo derecho ha recuperado mas fuerzas. Muchisimas gracias al Dr.Amar. Para mi, es el mejor doctor en su ramo. Lo recomiendo ampliamente. Que Dios lo bendiga siempre Dr. Amar.

Dr. Amar told me he could fix me and he did!
He is the worst doctor I have ever visited. He doesn't even bother to listen to the patients and respond properly which is the prime duty of th doctors. He only knows the word surgery. That's it.
We appreciate feedback as it can be beneficial in keeping exemplary customer service on track. This review, left anonymously, robs us of the ability to reach out to the reviewer. Our door is open and we are available to listen.

Excellent surgeon.

Horrible doctor! having back pain that radiate down my leg. He sends me for an MRI and when go in for the results he does NOT even look at the written report that compared the new MRI to the one that was ran 4 years prior. Had the nerve to tell me there was no reason for my pain at all. Really? So, I am making it up? Offered no solutions at all and then tells me to come back in a month. Um, how about I come back NEVER!
We appreciate the candid feedback. Although we strive to be as informative as possible when educating patients on our findings and next steps, it's certainly possible that our own familiarity with the process may reduce our effectiveness in that regard. We appreciate the reminder of the importance of considering the process from our patient's perspective. If there are ever additional questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out so that we can promptly address them.

I was referred to a Dr. Amar Rajadaksha. I made an appointment for today at 1:30, showed up on time with copies of my relevant scans and reports and filled out the paperwork.The waiting room was packed. I and was given releases that said he does not carry malpractice insurance and any malpractice would go to arbitration with a $75000 maximum award. After waiting for over an hour I asked and found out there still were a number of patients in front of me. I left and will find another doctor.

The good Dr performed a fusion of L4 and L5 surgery on 19/2012. Cannot recommend this Dr highly enough! Superbe technician, consummate professional and just a very nice person.Surgery relieved my condition completely. Would not hesitate to seek him out in the future for any additional problems associated with my spine.
