Probably the most honest and caring surgeon that I have had the pleasure of meeting. Dr Binder evaluated me after devastating injuries suffered in a vehicle accident that resulted in neck and back injuries. He under promised and over delivered in how my results have been achieved in my first operation. I definitely want him to perform my next operation in getting me back to almost full functionality. My wife is so impressed that she wants him to operate on her accident related injury.

Pathetic care and bedside manner

I was referred to Dr. Binder who was highly recommended by a former patient of his. Though his office was somewhat farther away from me, it was worth it to find the best neurosurgeon I could find. He is very professional, thorough, and understanding of my concerns. I feel better and recommend him to anyone who is looking for a neurosurgeon.

Excellent doctor who truly cares about his patients. He was recommended by my doctor. He performed my surgery after being very thorough and trying conservative treatments. I feel much better.

Dr. Binder is a charming fellow and man. He is extremely intelligent and does have a calmness to him. However, you have been warned not to choose him wisely. A little history, he performed major back surgery on my back in 2014. He has left me handicapped for life. Before the surgery, I had major back pain because of a crushed disc. After my back fusion, I have loss feeling in the toes of my left foot. My toes are always numb and the strength in my toes are gone. My back pain is worse now!

When you are having back surgery you want someone other medical professionals wait to see. Dr Binder is that provider! He is a calm man who provided me with the answers I needed to make a difficult decision, but was the best decision I could make. It got me back on my feet and pain free. I highly recommend him without reservation!
Dr. Binder is simply the best. You will not find a more qualified, caring, and attentive doctor. His staff is also very nice. I highly recommend him to anyone who might need neurosurgery.
