He did a fantastic job on my back.. Went to see him because lower back is bothering me. He treated me like all I wanted was drugs. All I wanted was to find out how to get rid of the pain. Very disappointed in my last visit.

Dr. Banks was my previous surgeon, I left after having 3 epidural injections that were the worst pain I ever felt, he does not use numbing agents for injection sites so have something to bite down on, he doesn't listen to the patient, and it took me to pretty much crawl into the office for him to get me pain medication, since I left him I found a new surgeon and she had so many more options and compassion, we proceeded to artificial disc replacement, stay away from the butcher banks

Thanks to Dr. Banks I have almost zero back and leg pain today and I can continue to do my day to day activities without any problems. My recovery from surgery was quick and I look forward to my next check up meeting to hear about my progress. I highly recommend him to anyone suffering from long term back and leg pain.

I will not be going to see him or this clinic again. He is knowledgeable but the clinic it self is horrible. It is a one stop shop in a bad way. He does not use numbing medication while performing his epidural injection!! And I find it very strange to go to a place that sees patients, has a pain clinic, oh and does epidurals, oh and CT's and MRI's. All right there. They do not have nurses and the Dr jumps back and forth from clinic to preform radiology procedures. Hmmmm.
He doesn't listen to the patient.
