Exceptional! He was professional, frank, and able to explain things in a straightforward manner. Within one minute, I wqs certain that Dr. Amin was the neurosurgeon i wanted to do my procedure. I highly recommend him if your situation calls for spinal surgery. The follow-up appointments were on time and he explained everything clearly throughout the post-surgery process.

I underwent a major spine operation done by Dr.Amin and staff December of last year. I had suffered a break in a thorassic vertabrae and some ligament damage as well. It was extremely traumatic for me being i had never been severly hurt or even had broken bone in my life. Dr.Amin led the work with his assistant Dr.Roberts-Garner and not only were they very explainative and consice to me as to how things were gonna go but executed the operation and thus far my healing process has been great.

I was in terrible shape to begin with. Couldn't hardly walk or lift leg, couldn't sleep due to pain. Two weeks out and feeling 99% better than I was initially. Thank you very much Dr. Amin!

I suffered with pain in my legs for 1 1/2 yrs, that did not respond to any type of pain management. I was told by two different neurosurgeons there was nothing that could be done. My pain doctor referred me to Dr. Amin. After a series of tests he said he could help me and that he DID. I thank God every day for bringing this man into my life. He is a kind, knowledgeable doctor, with empathy for his patients. He explains in detail the procedure to be done. I am walking again thanks to him.

I am very pleased with the results of the surgery. It's only been about 2 weeks since the procedure but I am feeling better than I have felt in years! More importantly, I am standing taller and able to walk better than I have in a long time. I would definitely recommend Dr. Amin and his associates: Jordan and Marissa.

Dr. Amin is forward in speaking, honest and informative. All of my questions were answered and everything I was informed would happen did; in the time I was told. One of my concerns was my actual surgery, the team involved and the hours and days afterward in the hospital. Often times you can feel very isolated. Dr. Amin was very attentive! He was in the hospital early each day and checked in on me. I have already recommended Dr. Amin to my friends. His team is great.
