DR. OH did my posterior laminectomy in 2007. I still have pain of course but I would not recommend anybody else for neurosurgery. I have had exalting comments from techs, pathologist, and other doctors who have seen subsequent CAT scans of his work on my neck. All have been amazed and complimentary. I have read some of the nastier comments online and I can say honestly that some people will just write nasty things when they're in pain and not getting a resolution right away. It is unfortunate that these comments are lowering of a brilliant surgeon. This is a five-star doctor all the way. He may not tell you what you think you want to hear and you may not get the results you're thinking you're going to get but Dr. Oh is brilliant, honest, and knows what he's doing. Patients should be more patient with their doctors.

I felt it was important to recognize all the help and support I've gotten from the staff, particularly in reference to Dessiree Carter. I recently moved to Newport Beach after a stint of pro hockey and had serious back pain stemming from my playing days. Workers comp was a major hassle but Dessy took it upon herself to handle my case and deal with the adjuster on her own. While the pain still exists, her hard work and proactiveness have made my life significantly easier and less stressful. TY

I CHOSE DR. OH BECAUSE OF ALL OF THE GREAT REVIEWS AND MOSTLY BECAUSE OF THE REVIEWS REGARDING EASE OF SCHEDULING APPOINTMENTS AND APPOINTMENT WAIT TIMES. FIRST OFF IT TOOK ME TWO DAYS TO GET SOMEONE ON THE PHONE. I LEFT MESSAGES AND GOT NO RESPONSE. THE FIRST APPT WENT GREAT. THEN CAME THE FOLLOW UP APPT. HOUR WAIT ON MY LUNCH BREAK AND NEVER SAW THE DOC. I'M SO DISAPPOINTED BECAUSE DR. OH SEEMED LIKE A GOOD DOC BUT I CAN'T HAVE A DOC THAT DOESN'T RESPECT THE PATIENTS TIME.

Dr. Oh is a stud. Quite simply, he took my sciatica away. I was scared about surgery. I heard about screws and rods being placed in my back from other doctors. My ex-husband had this procedure done a few years ago and was miserable. Dr. Oh came up with a minimally invasive, outpatient approach. No implants. I was on my feet within hours. Pain free. Thanks for a great job, Dr. Oh.

Best doctor's office visits ever! From the front desk to scheduling, assistant and doctor. Very efficient and ON TIME!! Dr. Oh is very knowledgeable and takes time to answer all your questions. I didn't feel rushed. I was blown away by the follow-up - from both the Medical Center and Dr. Oh. Great experience!

Dr. Oh was truly amazing. I found him because of his reputation for performing complex procedures on an outpatient or just overnight stay. I was told I need a multi-level lumbar fusion and instead I opted for a single level micro-discectomy. The surgery was 1 hour and I went home the same day. Thank you Dr. Oh. I'm lucky I found you! I'm encouraging my friends who have been told they need fusion surgery to see him for another opinion.

Dr. Oh is a great physician. He showed a refreshing way of looking at my problem. I work at a large call center and had developed neck pain that was shooting to my right arm. He crafted a customized approach to my problem. Although the therapy that he recommended helped me a bit, I did not altogether better. He performed a minimally invasive surgery on my neck that had me back working within two weeks. Pain free! Thanks Dr. Oh.

Dr. Oh did an amazing job with my cervical spine surgery. I went to a bunch of different doctors throughout southern California. Dr. Oh was caring and compassionate. He did my surgery perfectly. I just had my one-year follow up with him. Prior to surgery, I had crazy pain from my neck radiating down my right arm. When I woke up from surgery, my pain was gone. One year later, it is still gone. I went back to work within a few weeks. I am so happy. Thanks Dr. Oh!

Wonderful, caring doctor. He did the best to find conservative treatment options for me. When that failed, he performed surgery. I had a perfect result. I saw a few others in the community before I saw Dr. Oh. But once I saw him, I was sold!

How do you thank someone who has worked tirelessly to solve your back pain issues? Dr. Bryan Oh at Basic Spine has answered so many questions and has relieved me of so much pain I can hardly believe where I am today. I found Dr. Oh after having other doctors tell me I had all kinds of things and putting me on all kinds of drugs. Not at Basic Spine. They listened to what I had to say, How I was in constant pain and could barely walk, let alone work. They understood my issues.
