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.

Office staff and NP’s were very helpful and attentive to my needs. Dr. Mina did my husbands back surgery I believe in 2012. He has done great. I am hoping I will not have to have surgery but if I do I wouldn’t want anyone else to do the procedure.

I am very pleased with Dr. Mina’s care. She provides me with excellent patient care. She listened carefully to concerns and addressed them in an expedient manner. I am two weeks post-op and feeling much better. This is my second surgery with Dr. Mina and I prefer to trust my care with her.

I was referred to Dr. Mina by SRMC for a brain injury. Dr. Mina examine me and she discussed in depth with me about my condition, with very much concern and compassion. She did not rush the visits and thoroughly answered all my concerns, as well as my family's concerns. She reassured me that I would get the best care ever. After reviewing my MRI, she determined that I was in a high risk category for surgery. With much concern, she referred me to one of the top neurosurgeons in the Country, due to the location of my injury. He examined and took my case, and we hightailed it to PHX Arizona!! I am thankful and very blessed to have her in my corner because she went the extra mile to make sure that my active lifestyle was back to normal as possible. I am doing well today, thanks to her and her caring staff. YALL ROCK????
