I initially contacted Dr. Darwish last year due to hip, glute, leg, lower back pain and impaired nerve function. I was diagnosed with severe arthritis and spinal stenosis. After conservative measures were unsuccessful, I had a laminectomy on 07/08/20. I am now totally pain free, have improved nerve function, and basically have my life back! A big thank you to Dr. Darwish and his wonderful team!

My son had herniated discs in his back and we were sent for a consultation with Dr. Darwish. He used surgery as a last resort for my son. After months of trying other options surgery was the last option. He performed it and my son is doing wonderful. He is an amazing Dr. From his bedside manner,explaining everything to you as well as any questions,to a wonderful staff. I feel very blessed that we were able to cross paths and even more blessed that he was the right doctor for my son.

I would highly recommend Dr Darwish. After having 3 lumbar epidural injections and 6 weeks of physical therapy I was still in pain. I couldn’t walk more than a block or stand in place for more than a few minutes without being in severe pain. I went to Dr Darwish and he recommended an L4-L5 fusion. He took his time and explained everything to me. It took me one day to realize I could get over my fear of back surgery if it meant not living with the pain. I am 6 weeks post op and have no pain. I still have some restrictions but I can walk and stand as long as I want without pain. Once the restrictions are lifted, I will no longer be limited in what I can do thanks to Dr Darwish. Dr Darwish, his P.A. Ashley and the whole team are awesome. I’ve never had a problem scheduling my office visits and they are always on time. Dr Darwish and Ashley never make you feel rushed when they are with you. Not only is he a great surgeon, he also treats you the way you hope a doctor treats his patients.

I did my research prior to my back surgery - new it would be difficult. Pleasantly surprised 25 days post op / staples out / no more OT or PT. From the first visit both were amazed at how well I got around. I give most of the credit to the surgeon Dr. Darwish. There was more going on in my life than surgery but I knew I had to get back to normal ASAP. His PA and staff are wonderful! Scheduling apt is easy. Highly recommend!!!

After visiting for a surgical consult, my mom and I were blown away by the office staff and Dr. Darwish. We were met with compassion, efficiency and knowledge. With a surgery date, follow up appointment and all the information we needed, my mom left the appointment knowing she made the right choice. Thank you for a wonderful experience!!

I have had a great experience with this medical group. Dr. Darwish is very compassionate and explains plans very well. Extremely personable, polite, and great sense of humor. He kept me updated and shared his treatment plan clearly along the way. He is very meticulous about his care, gave me several treatment options, recommendations, and was available to answer all of my questions. Would highly recommend!

Dr. Darwish is an excellent surgeon and I would recommend him to anyone facing back surgery. After 3 years of back pain and one year of excruciating pain, I am now pain free due to the excellent care given to me by Dr. Darwish and his staff. When I went for my pre-op appointment, I was very nervous with every look he and his staff gave me. Because of my nervousness, they took the time to explain the procedure and assure me that the surgery would make me feel much better. He was right! Mike B.

Dr. Darwin’s is an excellent surgeon. My experience with back fusion surgery was a tough decision but I was confident in his surgical ability. If you are put to the task to have this procedure , don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Darwish. After having the procure performed and with rehabilitation it’s now been 12 weeks and I have never felt better. Along with an outstanding staff that was always available and regularly contacted me for post operative followup. Thanks to Dr. D and staff.

On 10/3/18 I had surgery to remove stenosis and fusion. A 3 day hospital stay and return to home became a 10 day stay followed by 1 month of rehab. Following the surgery my entire peri area was numb and I was incontinent of bowel and bladder. Was told feeling would return but it hasn't. I now, 2 months later have to learn to self catheterize myself. On top of it all my back is still sore and can only walk any amount of distance with walker. I'm very sorry I had the surgery. Get 2nd opinion!!

Dr. Darwish is a superior, talented surgeon. He performed a lumbar fusion on me in September of 2018. In less than a week, I was off all pain medication. I followed his postop instructions and have had an excellent result. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Darwish. He and his staff are professional, compassionate and very attentive to the patient's needs.
