Patient Reviews (5)
in River Ridge, LA |
My orthopedic referred me to Dr. Todd after suffering a year with lower back pain & the inability to sit or be active, plus a year of treating my pain with physical therapy, pain management injections/epidural & chiropractic sessions. My MRI was 1 1/2 yr., so he ordered a new MRI finding a severely herniated disc that only surgery would repair. He is an excellent surgeon, very kind, caring & supportive during the pre/post op process. His assistant is very efficient & returns calls immediately.

I've been seeing Dr Todd for several years now. I have a badly degenerative spinal condition and he is genuinely concerned about my health. To the one star reviewer, Dr Todd is well respected and in high demand. Unfortunately, he does have many clients because of that. Once you become an established patient, scheduling becomes less of a pain. I highly recommend Dr Todd to others who have problematic spinal conditions. He is not a "i hurt my back and need meds" kind of a doctor, look elsewhere.

Dr. Andrew Todd is not a detailed doctor. I made an appointment which took several months to see him, and the appointment lasted 5 minutes. He tends to take on to many clients without the time to spend with his patients. He does this so he can make as much money as possible, and wastes the time of his clients. He didn't scheduled the proper tests to determine what was wrong with my back, he said the test would look just like the other tests. I went to another doctor, who found the problem.

In my experience, Dr. Todd is highly skilled at diagnostic and treatment planning together with me as a patient. He explains all options and their expected outcomes. His approach is confident, caring and focused on getting me to the highest level of functioning safely and with attention to maintaining function in the future. Brilliant and willing to listen. I have had excellent ortho care and not-so-excellent. To me, Dr. Todd is the real deal.
in Kenner, LA |
Dr Todd is a wonderful doctor and surgeon. He guided me through the procedures needed to find the reason for my back pain. I had fusion surgery in L4-L5 vertebrae and I am almost 100% I can't stop smiling because I feel so good! Hardly any back pain! So worth it!! His staff is great as well!!
