What People Say About Dr. Carlos David, MD

If I could give this doctor a zero I would. My mother died under his care. He told her it would be a low risk surgery. After the surgery she was not watched closely and had a stroke.. he went on vacation the next day and did absolutely nothing for her care while she suffered for 3 months before passing away. He never talked to the family and turned her over to others on the team. He is arrogant and I feel strongly that she would have been ok without any surgery at all... don't go to this do

I can't say enough wonderful things about Dr. David. After years of searching for answers, I was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation 1. Dr. David sat with me, showed me my scans, explained clearly what this diagnosis meant and listened and addressed all my concerns/questions. I got surgery (suboccipital craniotomy/c1 laminectomy/duraplasty), and had great, lifechanging results. Dr. David was so comforting throughout the surgery - confident, caring, direct. This is the doctor to go to for this.

Compassio nate and excellent at explaining all the details on my MRI and what my options would be. I felt very comfortable and had a lot of confidence in him the first appointment. I did not need to get a second opinion I knew he was the one I wanted to do my surgery. I am so glad that we have such a wonderful neurosurgeon like Dr. David. I would recommend him to anyone, family, friends or anyone else. Thank-You, Dr. David.

I had been having intense back pain for months. Dr. David was quick to diagnose the problem (a schwannoma in my lumbar spine) and, seeing that my wife was pregnant and due very soon, had me on his schedule for surgery in less than a week so I could be back on my feet again to help with our new baby. He performed my surgery perfectly, and now I feel like I am getting back to my old self again without any pain. My family and I are so grateful for his compassion, knowledge, and skills!

I have never had ANYTHING wrong with my health, until I was diagnosed with a meningioma, a benign, brain tumor by a Lahey neurologist. I was told that this neurologist wanted me to see the 'best' neurosurgeon, Dr. David. My family in tow, I went to my appointments. Dr. David made everyone feel comfortable with his abilities to get the job done. I put my life in his hands literally, and I'm glad I did. I came out of brain surgery w/o any ill effects. He is a highly skilled brain surgeon..
