Patient Comments (12)

Very responsive. From my very first interaction with Dr. Cole I was the center of his focus. From the initial meeting at 3 a.m. In the ER, to when he came by to walk me to my room at St. Mary's at five a.m. Amazingly, he showed up as he had promised on Saturday afternoon and spent over a half hour going over images with me and stating his opinion. He listened very closely to my questions, and answered all of them. And he knew that I consulted another surgeon, but did not matter.

Cedar City, UT |
Dr. Cole is amazing! He gave me a second chance at life. My back was curved to the point where I was in intense pain constantly; surgery from T4 to my pelvis was recommended. He did an a very detailed 12 hour surgery with wonderful results. His office staff and PAs are wonderful and I always got the answers I needed and they all cared about me and so kind during my recovery. I can walk again!! I highly recommend him!! You can't do better than Dr. Cole! SB

After nine years of dealing with severe nerve pain in my back, and after visits to multiple doctors of various backgrounds and practices who tried to help without success, I had concluded there was no solution. The thought of any type of back surgery frightened me.From our very first visit to post surgery follow-up, Dr. Cole has been professional, knowledgeable, compassionate and supportive. His personal interest in me and in my recovery and post-surgery outcome exceeded my expectations.

Dr. Chad Cole is a fabulous neurosurgeon! I was within a few months of being permanently disabled because of my back problems, and he was willing to work on my spinal stenosis and sciatic problems. Three years later, I can walk 2+ miles and feel great! No more sciatica, no more backache, and my health and happiness are where they were 35 years ago!!! I cannot thank him enough for all he did to improve my outlook on life and health!

Dr. Cole performed my back surgery 3 years ago and I am enjoying the benefits of his God given skills. He is very patient, clear spoken and compassionate Doctor. I am blessed to have had him as my surgeon. Thank you, Dr. Chad Cole for what you have done for me. Has Dr. Chad Cole moved from St. George ? What is his new location? Thank you
in St George, UT |
The reason I chose "fair" on scheduling urgent appointments, is because Dr. Cole performs surgery in SLC too, which, limits his time here in St. Gorge. I was impressed with his confidence that he could get rid of my neck pain. His office staff worked as a team. At any given time you could reach one of his clinical team members. Dr. Cole rounded on his pt's twice a day while in the hospital. He and his team went above and beyond what was expected of them.
