She listens to you then tells you what she sees wrong with you. She is not “pushy “ in telling different options to try.

Dr. Mina is not only a fantastic surgeon but is also a wonderful, caring person. She has performed 3 of my 4 cervical surgeries and wouldn’t be were I am physically if she wasn’t the person she is! She is also very knowledgeable and thorough, taking time to explain everything needed about the problem you have. Thank you Dr. Mina??

After seeing 4 other neurosurgeons and being told nothing could be done, I saw Dr Mina. She explained in depth what she could do to help ease my pain. After surgery I awoke with no pain. 20 months later I’m still doing great. She did tell me due to my degenerative disc disease I would most likely need surgery above the area she just did. I would highly recommend Dr Mina!

My visit yesterday I did not see Dr Mina. I went for results of my MRI that I brought disk in with me & their xrsy & their EMG testing. They could not find my EMG report Bruce had done. Said it was in cyber space so I had to rebook the appt for 3 wks later & still had to pay a $35 co pay.

As with all my visits with Dr. Mina, she took time to explain result of the test I had, implications for me and what could be done. She did not pressure me to make a decision to have surgery but pointed out benefits, risks and explained post-op recovery time. I have been seeing Dr. Mina for 9 years, know many people who have had surgery performed by Dr. Mina with good/excellent results. I have the utmost trust in Dr. Mina’s recommendations and surgical knowledge, skills.

Dr. Mina has done outstanding work at correcting a lower back problem of mine. Surgery and recovery have gone much better than expected. She is thorough, professional and very easy to talk to. And even though she is 2 hours from my home and local health system, I’m convinced she was the right choice for me.

Dr Mina performed a lumbar fusion surgery on me. She was extremely thorough and only performed the surgery after ensuring it was absolutely necessary. She is a wonderful surgeon, and very thoughtful and compassionate. I was fully aware of what the whole procedure from start to finish. She really takes the time to listen and asks all the right questions. I would put her at the very top of the list of great neurosurgeons in the country.
