BUT, IT IS NOT NICE TO TALK ABOUT PEOPLE SO HE SAVED MY LIFE. MINE IS CALLED SCHUMANNS DISEASE. WELL WHEN DR HAVE BEEN XRAY THEY X-RAY THE BACK BUT DOES ANY OF THEM X-RAY TO THE SIDE? I HAD ABOUT 4 CD OF MRI ACTUALLY I HAD 1 DISC THAT I LAID ON MY BACK FOR 3 HOURS TO DO AN MRI. I HAD 89% CURVE IN MY BACK. NORMAL CURVE IS BETWEEN 40%-60% I HAVE DEALT WITH IT ALL MY LIFE BUT AS I GOT OVER AND OVER IT HAS HURT MY BACK, SHOULDERS, AND NECK. FIRST HE DID MY NECK AND PUT RODS AND SCREWS IN MY NECK. THEN MY BACK FROM NECK TO THE CRACK OF MY BUTT. IT IS MY TESTIMONY, IT IS THE MOST STRAIGHTEST LINE ON MY BODY. I WOULD NEVER LET ANYONE TOUCH ME, AND DO MAJOR SURGERY WITHOUT TALKING TO SIN FIRST HE KNOWS MUCH ABOUT EVERYTHING. HE IS AMAZIN

April 28, 2018 Dr. Sin performed a MEGA MAJOR surgery on my scoliatic back which involved the vertebrae, multiple discs ect. He is a kind man with a passion for what he does. If he can fix it he'll fix it. Though I have developed some complications they ARE NOT due to his surgical techniques. Things happen. Luckily, He is going to fix it . I am so honored to be under his care. His humanity and compassion for his patients reigns supreme. Thank you Dr. SIn.

Very professional,curtious,understanding and fixed a lousy prior surgery. I am recovering better than the last surgery that was performed by another nuro surgeon. All staff and aids are extremely sincere and curtious. I would recommend this physician and staff to any neurological needs as first choice... Thanks!!!!!

Absolutely the most disorganized and unprofessional office. The medical records department is especially incompetent. They do not have any organization with RECORDS (which happens to be the department name). They are rude and have no consistency with answering questions. I would not go to Dr. Sin's office just due to the awful service that the office provides. Worst doc office experience ever!

Dr Sin did brain surgery on me July 2013. He has the best bed side manner and a great listener. I am so pleased with the journey he helped me through. I recommended to a friend who had same issue I had.

I had an appointment with Dr. Sin on May 8, 2017. Upon arriving, I checked in and gave the receptionist my ID and insurance card. Next she asked for the form of payment. Gave her debit card, but said they do not do credit, only debit on card. Huh?? Gave her cash, had no change, said I could go down street for change and come back. I WOULDN'T GO BACK IF HE WAS THE ONLY NEUROSURGEON IN AMERICA. Embarrassing to be refused service because of $75? Why not, Let's get you signed in and visit completed.

Results great. Recuperating time was MUCH longer than I had been told. Great Dr. Good bedside manner. But told me I'd be up and about in just a few weeks but has taken me 13 weeks. I think should have started P.T. sooner Wonderful office Crew especially Mrs. Barbara.
