What People Say About Dr. Bruce Chozick, MD

Worst dr. I ever went to. He performed 6 surgeries on my lower back. I believe 3 or 4 of them were unnecessary. My last surgery 5 years ago left me with legs numb below the knee including my feet. His aftercare was nonexistent. All he did was over prescribe narcotics. If you care about your quality of life stay far away from Bruce Chozik.

Dr. Chozick performed by brain surgery along Dr. Afshani. Both doctors are excellent. I continued seeing Dr. Chozick for aftercare. He is a good and thorough doctor. At firs the staff were pleasant. Recently, they have been rude, unhelpful and unfriendly. I would prefer not to continue my aftercare here not because of Dr. Chozick, because he is excellent, but the rudeness of the staff is getting to be.

I was fortunate to find Dr. Chozick to repair my back and neck. Had I not had the surgery on my back at the time, I would be in a wheelchair today! While other Orthopedic doctors wanted to repair my back with a 4 inch plate and 8 screws, which would have limited my motion. Dr. Chozick installed 2 pins in my back (L5) and my motion was not affected. He is awesome.

Terrible after care,basically crippled me after 2 surgeries,then when I was still not healed right 2years later he said there was nothing more he could do for me. Before the surgery his bedside manner was great,he reassured me everything would be great,I'm disabled at the age 37! My life has been a living hell since this botched surgeries! Be wary!

Dr. Chozick is not only an incredible Neurosurgeon, but truly a sweet and caring man. We have had so many friends and family members referred to Dr. Chozick, I've lost count. The results from my spinal fusion are great, but as important Dr Chozick truly cares about his patients. He takes the time to walk you through exactly what is happening with your condition and what the treatment options are. Can't say enough about Dr Chozick, he is truly a Godsend to our family.

Nothing but the best from this doctor. He is king knowledgeable and has empathy on your condition and the red tape that follows with workers comp and disabilities. He explains things in layman terms. he does not have that ego that comes with other doctors. I have had 2 surgeries and will be having a third soon. I respect and trust this man 200%. Diane also is kind and very helpful and is the behind the scenes keeping in running smooth. And Michelle is also is right hand and is great.

This Dr is the definition of a god like Dr. I had him do two spinal surgeries and after each i was 95% better when healed. He will take his tim with you and explain your options and then guide you through it all. I drive a hour to go to him and worth it anyday. Best part of all is he Treats you like a equal not like most dr do I strongly believe that he can help anybody who needs his specialities look him up and you wont be sorry. He is also the hospital nero for emergency operations.
