in Millersville MD |
Had a wonderful experience with Dr Bethel. I would recommend him any time. My procedure was a laminectomy and disconectmy. Great job and thanks for helping me walk again.
in Nanjemoy, MD |
I met this doctor in the ER. He gave me an exam several hours after receiving medication and the episode with my MS was over. He determined that I had a migraine brought on by a food allergy just like him. When I asked a few questions, he became aggressive, gripping the railing of me bed and speaking to me like I was no one to question him. I had to ask him to leave my room. Protocol was to have the neurology dept come back for re examination, however, Dr. Bethel refused to allow treatment.

In February 2016, I had multi-level total disc replacement surgery. Dr. Bethel performed this surgery and he is fantastic. He takes the time to explain everything up front and what the patient should expect in the following weeks/months after the surgery. His guidance was spot on and the surgery went well. One of the best surgeons that I have encountered!
