So many positive things to say but the one thing that stands out in my memory is that Dr Fayaz looked out for my best interest, not his. He was not ready to call for surgery at the first visit. I had chronic neck pain. He recommended physical therapy first, pain management second. When I had no pain relief some 9 months later I scheduled surgery in the form of a cervical fusion. I am very happy with the outcome and live an active life. That was eight years ago. I highly recommend Dr Fayaz.

This man saved my life 30 days ago today. I was brought into Conroe Regional unconscious and in critical condition from a head injury suffered in a fall at a tennis tournament. Almost immediately after having a CT scan I was wheeled into surgery where Dr. Fayaz opened my skull and relieved the pressure that would have likely taken my life. He has my debt and gratitude forever and then some.

Dr. Fayaz treated me and not back systems and therefore did a less evasive surgery with 100% results with no pain so I could get to the gym, spin classes. and riding my road bike.

I saw several surgeons before meeting with Dr. Fayaz and I am so glad I chose him. I would highly recommend Dr. Fayaz for any back or spine problems you have. He listens to you, he is conservative in his approach and does not push surgery at all. He also worked with me when my insurance changed and he was no longer on my plan two months prior to surgery. Because he is not part of a larger physician's group, he can make each decision on a case by case basis in the best interest of his patient

I had lower back surgery just over a year ago caused by a fall. I am an avid 78 year old golfer who returned to playing golf with no pain about six months after the surgery. Dr. Fayaz is a special person, very easy to talk to and a terrific surgeon who takes the time to get to know you, your activities and only does surgery as a last resort.

Due to preexisting conditions and falls, Dr. Fayaz performed 4 surgeries on my cervical and lumbar spine since August, 2014. There are not enough words to say about the great treatment and care I received on both occasions, but, according to what I learned from my wife after the cervical fusion surgery, Dr. Fayaz spent 1.5 hours just getting me into position for surgery. I highly recommend him to anyone wanting the best care.

I came to Dr. Fayaz in a very unexpected way, I was in a severe car accident where I fractured my neck which resulted in major surgery to have it fused. It was a very traumatic experience for me but Dr.Fayaz was very understanding? and took his time to explain my options. I feel very fortunate to have had such a knowledgeable? and genuine doctor by my side. Dr. Fayaz is a phenomenal doctor that truly cares about his patients.

Dr. Fayaz pays attention to his patients well being, and will take all the time necessary to interact with his patients and address their concerns. He has the knowledge and skill to perform successful operations. I appreciate his open demeanor and his ability to articulate what he sees as the patients problem area and the ability to correct these issues, making sure the patient understands what is involved.

Dr. Fayaz, (MD; MSc; FRCSC; FACS; P.A.) and Jonas Konan, (MS, PA-C Neurosurgery) are the Ultimate Neurosurgical Team, beyond amazing, and I feel so very blessed to have been fortunate enough to present to the Emergency Room when Dr. Fayaz just happened to be the “On-Call Neurosurgeon” (and also Jonas, his PA-C). They successfully performed an “Emergency Spinal Operation” on me for almost 5 hours, on a major holiday without any complaint whatsoever and now I can walk! Thanks again.

In August of 2016 Dr. Fayaz performed surgery to repair a portion of my spine which was causing an excruciating amount of pain in my neck. Mind you, this was my second surgery in this same area and I wouldn't have done it if I didn't have to. From the moment of the initial consultation to the post-surgical care Dr. Fayaz displayed a great amount of professionalism, empathy and excellent bedside manner (which is rarely found in doctors of his caliber). I recommend him without hesitation!

I suffered in pain for over two years, trying every therapy, short of surgery, until I could no longer work or walk. Dr. Fayaz performed one surgery on my back and gave me my life back. I wish I had seen Dr. Fayaz years earlier. Dr. Fayaz and his P.A. Jonas were genuinely concerned with my well being, They gave me their time in a way I've seldom experienced with other doctors. Their communication with me was amazing, and their staff was phenomenal. If you need a neurosurgeon, call Dr. Fayaz.

I was Blessed that Dr. Fayaz was on Duty September 6, 2016. He saved my Life. I was in a car accident and suffered a Burst Fracture. I WAS paralyzed for 3 Days. Dr. Fayaz and Jonas preformed surgery on September 7, 2016. Then stood by my side and checked on me daily until my second surgery September 10, 2016. I am walking now. I was never " Oh yeah, the spine case in room 123". Dr. Fayaz explained what he did and why each time we met. Thank you for giving me a Second Chance at Life. April

I found Dr. Fayaz to be a very genuine person, not at all what I have experienced with past doctors. While it is true that a surgeon has to be confident in his skills as a surgeon, Dr. Fayaz is not boastful about his skills. I am confident that I have the best neurosurgeon operating on my neck. He doesn't rush through an appointment; he sits down and explains his thoughts and plans for my treatment in a way that I feel very confident that I am receiving the best care possible.

Dr. Fayaz and Jonas were great! My daughter recommended him, because she new of him and his reputation from Kingwood Hospital. I saw him in February of 2016... best decision I ever made. I could barely walk, because of the pain. Dr. Fayaz and Jonas made me feel as if I was their only patient. He diagnosed me and explained everything so well. I had two surgeries on my neck and one on my lower back within six months. The surgeries went GREAT! I have no pain! I thank God for Dr. Fayaz!

He is a great doctor. Good bedside manor. I had neck surgery and was back to work in just two weeks. Jonah and Dr. Fayaz made me feel like one of the gang. Staff was super nice and always picked out my favorite candy when I came in. If you are in pain and in need of a surgeon you won't be disappointed.
