Dr Fassett was very straight forward about the procedure I needed and how it would be performed.He was one of the best Drs I ever worked with and I felt very comfortable talking with him.I would recommend him to anyone having any kind of spinal procedure done.Im feeling so much better after the procedures I had done.The pain I had been dealing with everyday for over 3 yrs is pretty much gone and Its only been a couple weeks since the surgery.Im not even healed up yet and feel 90% better.So I'm i sure I will feel like a new man after I fully heal

From other reviewers it looks like it is a good thing he passed on my case. If you have a complex issue with the spinal cord he will not take you as a patient or take the time to even see you to explain what is going on. He will have a nurse call with no rational explanation of what is clearly seen on the imaging! It’s a shame that most most “neurosurgeon” are just looking for easy cases because they do not have the skill necessary to be a real NEUROSURGEON!!! The Neurological Institute in Peoria is a SCAM beware of that joke of a place!!!

I was told by other Dr's that pain management was the best I could hope for the rest of my life. My neurosurgery has been a life changing experience. Dr Fassett and his team have given me quality of life back. Thank you and God bless you.

Dr. Fassett was very explanatory about my disorder right from the start and thorough out my complete procedural cycle. Never did I feel rushed during our consultations as he answered my and my wife’s concerns adequately and clearly. He managed my pain as well as one could have expected and his staff was very caring and professional and did all they could to provide me with the best care possible. If required I would not hesitate to go back to Dr. Fassett again or recommend him to a friend.
