I saw Dr. Ceverha after a neurologist left my head spinning upon reading a printout of an MRI. Dr. Ceverha spent an extensive amount of time with me reviewing my MRI and discussing my condition. He is personable, methodical and I trust him. The word "surgery" was not the first thing out of his mouth and left his office the most relaxed I've felt in weeks. His outstanding reputation is well earned.

DR CEVERHA REMOVED A GRAPEFRUIT SIZE TUMOR FROM MY HEAD IN 1995. HE DID AN EXCELLENT JOB, SAVED MY LIFE, AND IS REALLY TOP IN HIS FIELD. I CANNOT RECOMMEND HIM ENOUGH. I OWE HIM MUCH MORE THAN A BIG THANK YOU.

Three surgeries all after exhausting other means of relief. Dr. Ceverha has an outstanding, caring staff led by Nurse practitioner Bob Salsameda and administrator Irma Robles. His surgical skills are reported to be unparalleled as I can attest. Both Barry and Bob are such wonderful people, I feel like I am visiting friends when I have an appointment. They truly care about me and I am never rushed. Both have outstanding bedside manner. I would reccommend their team to anyone who has an issue.

An extraordinary neurosurgeon. His timely surgical intervention saved me from a dire development of dismal symptoms that would have ultimately shorten my life. His and his staff's ongoing monitoring of my condition has resulted in my enjoying a normal and productive life. Dr. Ceverha's neurosurgical nurse practitioner, Bob Salsameda, is especially helpful.

Dr. Ceverha made a diagnosis that many other physicians missed. Not only is he brilliant, but he is very compassionate as others have noted. He saved me from having surgery that would have left me more disabled than I currently am and for this I am so very grateful.
