What People Say About Dr. Frank Bishop, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Dr. Bishop is amazing! I had full leg sciatica that severely limited my quality of life. Through surgery he was able to take the pressure off of my nerves and I saw an immediate difference. 3 months later I have only slight numbness and minor discomfort when twisting or bending the wrong way. Much of this is due to nerve damage as I had a large herniation for almost 2.5 years prior to seeing Dr. Bishop. My surgery site is well healed and is very minor and hard to see. Dr. Bishop has a great bed side manner and was easy to talk to. I couldn't be happier with the outcome!

Dr. Bishop is absolutely THE BEST surgeon I could have hoped for in my situation. I had multiple herniated discs and pain off the charts. I got 4 surgeon opinions and 3 other surgeons said I needed 3 levels of surgery (they all varied in their recos too from fusion to mobi discs), but Dr. Bishop was the only one who said "I don't believe in one and done and I don't believe you need more than one level at this time for the symptoms that you're experiencing." I'm pain free thanks to Dr. Bishop!!

I have had a great experience with Dr. Bishop and his staff. I was suffering from extreme back and leg pain for several months before I was referred to him, and after a brief period of diagnosis and less invasive treatments, he performed lumbar decompression surgery that completely relieved my pain and got me walking, working, and enjoying life again.

I can't thank Dr. Bishop enough! He saved my life and removed my brain tumor without any complications. He made the right decisions at the right time, choosing to operate sooner than expected when he realized I was in danger of losing brain function. He is both decisive and thoughtful in his analysis. I like that he is easy to talk to and his explanations are always thorough and clear. He made time to listen to any concerns I had. Highly recommend Dr. Bishop! He's a great surgeon and a cool guy!

Dr. Bishop was very helpful and informative about my condition (disc herniation). He answered all my questions and concerns and the surgery that took place to repair the damage was minimally invasive and my recovery fell well within the bounds of expectations set by him.
