Dr. Abood saw my daughter about her back pain. He was very thorough and attentive. He recommended therapy and she is much better.

After writing in my husbands medical record in the er that he had inconsistent medical exams and give away leg syndrome, basically calling him a liar. So long story short after all the suffering my husband's has had to deal with he ended up having to go and see another surgeon in Chicago not just because of the insurance issue but because aboods opinions where wrong. My husband had to have a fusion where he last had his surgery in his lower back. He was also diagnosed with drop foot by 2 surgeo

I highly recommend Dr. Abood! My years of back pain finally got me to the point where I couldn't even go to work. After much research, I chose to see Dr. Abood, and I'm so glad I did. Some reviews I've seen say he's not friendly - I didn't find that to be true. He is to the point, but he's kind and an excellent surgeon. My surgery was nine months ago, and while I still have some pain, I'm off all my pain medications! I do not say this lightly, but Dr. Abood really did give me my life back.

My family Doctor referred me for my back pain. I felt like he listened to me and recommended physical therapy. It worked and I am doing better.

Very un compassionate. I am a Medicaid patient and he told me that I wasn't worth his time because he would not get paid enough to see me
This review is fictitious. Lansing Neurosurgery is not in network with Medicaid and we did not see a Medicaid patient in July 2016. Lansing Neurosurgery provides 24/7/365 coverage to over a half million people in the mid Michigan region for Brain and Spine emergency conditions. We have provided this seamless day, night and weekend coverage for over 40 years. We treat all emergency patients regardless of their ability to pay.
