    Already recommended him to my neighbors and friends at the gym with back problems.

    I was having extreme lower back pain when I meet dr.Darwish. Doctor Darwish (and his staff) were second to none. I have since had surgery(done by dr. Dawish) and I am pain free and in perfect health. I have heard many horror stories about back surgeries. I can tell you from experience you will have nothing to worry about with dr. Darwish. He is a true professional and I feel so very blessed to have had him for my doctor. I would recommend doctor Darwish to everyone. he is truely the best !!!!

    Horrible experience, tells you what you want to hear to get you to commit to surgery. Does not tell the truth, avoid going to see everyone him at all cost. Awful Post surgery experience as well. 0 stars if I could

    Dr.Darwish is a superb surgeon! He is professional, sensitive to your needs and a surgeon I trust completely. He performed a cervical fusion due to a severe herniation. My pre-op, surgery and post-op was handled with complete care. Behind every good doctor is an excellent staff - Dr. Darwish's team = A++ ! His assistant, Nadine Oostman is simply wonderful!

    I would strongly recommend Dr Darwish as a surgeon. I suffered a horrible neck injury from a fall. For the last 2 years, I went through 3 rounds of physical therapy, epidural steroid injections and numerous types of pain killers. Within 1 month of seeing Dr Darwish, I was scheduled for surgery. After surgery, I was on my way home within 24 hours. It's now been 3 months since surgery and I was cleared to go back to work climbing billboards. GREAT DOCTOR!

    Dr.Darwish is the absolutely the best! His kindness, professionalism and bedside manner are impeccable. He actually takes time to discuss all your options and make sure you understand everything before making any recommendations. He's respectful of your time and needs. In short simply outstanding!

    Dr. Darwish did an incredible job on a C5 C6 C7 cervical stenosis disc displacement surgery. Through this whole process Dr. Darwish and his P.A. Ashley were so patient and understanding. They answered all my questions and their confidence gave me the peace I needed to endure a surgery. I just completed a 2 week follow up visit, post surgery. The healing is ahead of schedule and i will have no scars. P.S. my wife thinks his P.A. is top notch also. Both have a great spirit.
    Dr. Darwish treated me for 6 months with physical therapy and sent me for injections before ever recommending surgery. When the injections stopped working, Dr. Darwish performed a minimally invasive surgery that took all my back and leg pain away. He always spent time explaining everything to my wife and me. Great doctor and nice person overall. I recommend him to anyone who has back or neck pain.
