If you need help with back injuries or spinal problems then this is the man to see! Great doctor, very thorough and great bed side manner. I recommend everyone to contact Dr. Hanbali before going anywhere else. If you need a second opinion, call him!

My only complaint is that I was scheduled for a minor surgery at 9:00AM and it did not happen until 12:20 PM.

Excellent surgeon who takes the time to listen to his patients and communicates options and care plans. His communication techniques are very good and has a positive outlook.

He might be a skilled surgeon but his bedside manners are very poor. He was arrogant and would not listen to what I had to say. He constantly interrupted me as I was trying to explain my mobility issues and characteristics of my pain. I decided for surgery. The office staff although very nice they were very unorganized about the pre op tests, radiology, etc.

Great Physician addressed my issue in a timely matter and I didn't have to wait 3 hours in the waiting room. His staff is courteous and professional.

DR.Hanbali is an excellent doctor! his staff was very nice and respectfull!! never a wait time i highly recommend
Would not recommend. This was the rudest physician we have ever encountered. He acted too busy to deal with us or our questions. We were referred to him for a second opinion and told he was an excellent surgeon. Perhaps the more skilled a surgeon the arrogant they are. If this is the case I'm sure he's an excellent surgeon. His office staff however was professional and courteous.

A complete waste of time. I guess I didn't have the right insurance for this Doctor. Very selective in his patients. I chose him as my first pick, based on his treatable conditions of which I have diagnoses' for. He literally told me there wasn't anything he could do for me; and that there was no way I had other diagnoses' for conditions which I was presenting to see if he could treat me. I was literally the one who brought up a procedure I may be interested to ease my conditions.

My 3 year old son was diagnosed with chiari malformation and like any parent i felt sad and nervous when they told me he would need surgery. Reading doctor Hanbalis reviews and hearing doctors and nurses tell me that he is one of the best neurosurgeons, made me feel comfortable and relieved. My son had surgery October 21st, it was a 3 hour surgery and stayed 3 nights. I thank God everything went well and I thank doctor Hanbali for being a great neurosurgeon. As a mother I highly recommend him.

I was extremely satisfied with Dr. Hanbai's care and procedure. He is easy to talk to and shows genuine concern. He is extremely skilled in his practice. When I was in the rehabilitation hospital, the Physical therapist and Occupational Therapist said they have not run across difficulties on Spine procedures with Dr. Hanbali patients as they have with other doctors. They were amazed at how quickly I healed and was able to get back on my feet again. Procedure (4 cages from C3-C7. & plate).

My son was diagnosed with a brain tumor at PMH Emergency because of the thoroughness of Dr. Julia Whitefield, who was beyond diligent, on Monday April 21st. Dr. Hanbali performed brain surgery on my son Wednesday April 23rd. His mannerism, his level of skill is unbeatable! He was completely thorough , made sure we completely understood what the procedure would entail and made sure we were kept abreast of how the surgery was progressing. His empathy was phenomenal. Completely impressive!
