Dr. Pasarin performed a lumbar hemi-laminectomy due to a herniated L5 disk that was impinging on a nerve for my left leg. I had lost sensation in my left big toe and had a"drop foot" or weakness in the muscle control to my left foot. He explained the procedure and offered for me to seek a second opinion before deciding on the surgery. However, his manor and straight-forward attitude comforted me enough to go ahead with the procedure. He greeted me before the surgery and we covered everything over again to be sure I was comfortable and ready. I am a firefighter paramedic and a drummer. So the loss of control my left foot would be a career-ender, and he never told me anything but the truth of my situation. Sometimes doctors may sugar-coat things, but be less than honest. I appreciated his assessment of the risks and possible outcomes of the surgery. Happily everything turned out perfect. I'm still only 2 weeks post surgery, but my pain, numbness and weakness is gone. He saved my career.

I'm a patient of Dr. Pasarin and I had double discectomy (arthroplasty) - C5-C6 and C6-C7 in February 2019. Te pain in my right hand was unbearable and my thumb, index finder and middle finger had lost any sense of touch. I'm amazed by the surgery procedure, work ethics and professionalism of Dr. Pasarin. One day after the surgery the pain was gone and the sense of touch had returned to my extremities. After 4 weeks of physical therapy I regain full motion of my neck and the x-rays showed the discs in perfect order. I'm happy to say that only 2 months after the surgery I'm back to my triathlon training - I participated in 2 of them so far - and I'll run the Miami Marathon in February 2020. I can believe that from rolling out of bed with mind blowing pains I'm back to my regular training and normal life. I could not thank enough Dr. Pasarin and his caring stuff for what they did for me. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Bogdan.

I have had two major surgeries performed by Dr. Pasarin. My cervical spine in 2008 and lumbar spine recently. Both surgeries have had excellent outcomes as have the people I have recommended to his practice. His bedside manner and respect for his patients is exemplary and should be a model for many other practitioners.

I went to see Dr Pasarin for debilitating pain from a single level disc herniation in my neck to be evaluated for surgery. We agreed surgery would be the best course of action. Surgery was 7/15/19 and was a complete success!! No pain or other symptoms post surgery. I am so happy I did the surgery. He’s fantastic as is his support staff.

I tried to have Dr. Pasarin advise/evalution for some medical test results done to my mother, for her condition Spinal Stenosis for possible treatment or surgery. My mother lives out of the state.... These results were ordered by another doctor out of the state and as soon I told the front desk assistant, she rejected request without Dr, Pasarin's concern or decision....

I am thrilled to tell everyone how GREAT Dr. Pasarin is. I was treated for spinal stenosis and a disc pinching my nerves. I had been suffering since last August 2018. I did not have back pain but i had feelings of electric shocks running down both legs. I had 3 epidurals and a neurologist and I got no relief. I finally went to Dr. Pasarin and he immediately diagnosed the problem of the pinched nerve. I agreed to surgery and had a laminectomy under which Dr. Pasarin removed my lamina from my spine. I only spent two nights in the hospital. It has been 5 weeks now and I FEEL GREAT!! No longer do I have that electric shock occurrences. I am back to normal. I know Dr. Pasarin was the right doctor for me. His bedside manner was great, as was his assistant, Jill, and I would TOTALLY RECOMMEND Dr. Guillermo Pasarin to everyone in need of a neuro-surgeon.

Dr.Pasarin is amazing. I am a physician myself. I spoke to multiple other physicians and nurses Dr.Pasarin has taken care of and all of them had an excellent experience. Dr.Pasrin performed a microdiscectomy in July. I was back on the tennis court after three months and I feel great! I have recommended multiple close friends and patients to Dr.Pasarin since my surgery.

I am a physician. I saw Dr Pasarin for a herniated cervical disc that left me in excruciating pain. I had weakness in my dominant arm and numbness in my fingers. I knew what my symptoms represented and that surgery was a near certainty. I thoroughly researched the local neurosurgeons asking other MD's, hospital staff, industry representatives and patients who had the same problem. Every road led to Dr Pasarin's office. I wont detail the experience beyond saying I gave him five stars.

Experience pays. Dr Pasarin was thorough, ordering follow up tests to confirm diagnosis, explaining my options as well as suggesting I get a second opinion. 1 month after surgery (3-level ACDF) all my symptoms are gone and i am back to doing all the things i did prior to surgery. I would highly recommend Dr. Pasarin

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Pasarin and his entire medical staff from the office and hospital. I am 29 and underwent a L4 L5 fusion and two weeks out I feel great, near 100% already and haven't even began therapy. It was no where near as scary or painful as I imagined. Dr. Pasarin was thorough, patient, and caring through the entire process, my family loves him, he is highly recommended!

I have been a patient of Dr. Pasarin's for about 11 years. During that time he has operated on me once (Lower back fusion). Dr. Pasarin is skilled and kind man who takes his time with you and explains things until you understand. I came to him years ago as a workers comp case. He has always treated me like I was a VIP.
