He is awesome. Was so good at explaining to my wife and I what was happening and what all the mri's meant. Especially, explained options and in language we could understand.

Dr. Cech performed a spinal lamenectomy on me on September 11, 2002 and I have been and am still feeling and moving great. I am about to arrange an appointment for my wife who is having shoulder issues between her c-6 & c-7 disc. I am certain that if it's possible Dr. Cech can make her pain free as he did for me many years ago. Thank you Dr. Cech

The most amazing Dr EVER! Don't expect Dr.C to be on time or explain things in detail. But trust Dr C knows what he's doing & has YOUR BEST INTEREST, NOT his pocket book, as his primary concern. He is the BEST doctor! He may not explain things well & his primary concerns are surgery & trauma patients but he will always make sure each patient has the absolute best results & is extremely conservative. 2 neurosurgeons wanted to fuse 5 of 7 cervical vertebrae. He took the time to reconstruct them

Dr. Cech diagnosed and treated both me and my wife. Dr. Cech is the neurosurgeons neurosurgeon. The Dr. is in our and many other peoples opinion the best. He gave us back our quality of life. Make sure you have all the necessary scans and such before you see him. Methodist Hospital is great too.

Dr. Cech saw me twice for neck and spine issues. I was experiencing extreme pain and all he did was refer me to other doctors. He never even prescribed any meds even though I was in pain. He could have but did not prescribe physical therapy, but rather referred me to another doctor who specializes in physical therapy. I had already been to 3 doctors and did not want to go to another, especially someone he recommended.

Dr. Cech has performed 2 highly successful back surgeries on me. Without these surgeries I would not be walking and have debilitating pain. You will have to wait to see him, but it is well worth it. He is highly respected by nurses and imaging centers.

Listen carefully, if you are looking for lots of talk and words and BS, go see another Doctor, if you want an awesome Neurologist, see Dr Cech! After 10 years of pain went to see Dr Cech 5 mins on initial diagnosis - he had all my X-Rays and MRI's on his screen. He said, I can help you, without major surgery in other words a Laminectomy L4/5/5/6 no muscle cuts, no rods no cages. End consultation. Surgery 1 week later. I day post surgery no pain -1 week later 4 mile walk! Miracles do happen!
in Alvin, TX |
Waited a month to get in with hopes of getting answers. Doctor came in and told us we were in the wrong place, spent less than 2 mins with us, asked no medical questions, no exam, in and out, made us feel we wasted his time. Were told by his assistant that we should have never been booked by his staff because we had no prior workup, i.e., imaging. Were handed name of a neurologist, no apology for wasting a month waiting or our day for the visit. Left in disbelief and extremely disappointed.

Diagnosed me, did surgery on my lower back with awesome results.
