What People Say About Dr. Ashok Thanki, MD

Dr Thanki is an experienced and computer doctor. BUT I would absolutely NEVER recommend him to anyone. His appointments (when the phone line isn't busy) are always 3+ hours overbooked. His waiting room is so small people have to wait in their cars in the parking lot. His receptionists are rude and incompetent. I always have to call the night before a procedure because I will never get a call like they say and always act as if I am wasting their time. I will never go back to Dr. Thanki.

Worst doctor ever!! I have degenerate disc disease .. this doctor had me on high pain meds for years. Then I weaned myself off to see how bad the pain was .. this doctor got mad mad me beacuse I guess he wanted me on them. My pain wasn't that bad.. so I stopped taking it. when I questioned him about this he got mad... I found another doctor And here the pain was coming from my joints and not my back. So for 5 years this doctor made me think I had DDD. Staff ( mary ann) are morons too.

PLEASE I BEG everyone please do not go to dr thanks he has no right being in practice. I had a simple back surgery and know I am crippled he cut the nerve to my right leg and my right foot never made any mention of it in while I was still seeing him and still in his care he told me that I would have to go see someone else to get medication when I was only asking for a script for an MRI he has a bad bedside manner has no idea about back surgery and his facility is like a chop shop he sent me home

Dr. Thanki is a straight shooter -- he spends a significant amount of time reviewing the details of your case, including surgerical options and all pertinent information that will help you decide how to address your situation. He diligently reviews all aspects of your situation, and spends as long as it takes to make you feel comfortable. We can't sing his praises enough -- we are SO grateful for all of his help. The surgery was a success, and I made a full recovery very quickly!

Dr. thanki spent over an hour with me. When he is with you, you are his only focus. He showed me my MRI results and explained everything to me. I am very comfortable having him perform surgery on my back. I would recommend him to anybody!
