Based on the poor care my father received after his back surgery, I would NOT recommend Dr. Geiger, MI Brain & Spine Institute, or St. Joseph Chelsea. If you are an elderly person BEWARE that no one discusses the risk factors for postoperative delirium and what can happen after surgery!

I had a HORRIBLE experience with Geiger! He came in didn't look at the report my primary doctor sent over, didn’t look at my MRI, which shows a bulging disk, and only looked at the xray they took in his clinic! My bulging disk doesn't appear on x-rays. He refused to even listen. I felt horrible and violated after my 3 minutes with Geiger! I was self pay and I think Geiger refused to help me due to money! Thank God for real doctor's that have stepped in to help me since this appointment!

He was very honest about the condition of my back but hopeful. I was unable to move when I went into surgery and felt 95% better immediately after surgery. To me it was a miracle. Today I rarely have any back discomfort unless I lift something repeatedly over 50 lbs.. which I try always to avoid.

Dr. Geiger did an excellent job of repairing my back. After a year of debilitating pain, I have quality of life again. I would definitely recommend him.
