Dr. Banks Says:

   

in Albertville, AL |
I had a laminectomy on July 19th for spinal stenosis. I had been in pain for over a year. Local doctor was treating me for a herniated disc with epidural blocks. I would have relief for maybe 3 weeks. Dr. Banks was very good in explaining the stenosis and how a laminectomy could help. There was no pressure from him to have surgery, it was my decision. I am 1 1/2 weeks completely pain free! I saw Dr. Banks a total of about 5 times. He is very personable. I highly recommend him!
in Decatur, AL |
My special needs brother is being treated by Dr. Banks for a pituitary tumor. Impressed is an understatement. Dr. Banks was extremely thorough, explained everything so we could all understand, was just as mannerly and polite as he could possibly be and is helping us find the source of some unrelated symptoms. We are very happy our primary care doctor sent us to Dr. Banks.
in Tuscumbia, AL |
Two ruptured disks at L4, L5 Disk fragments on nerve causing extreme pain. Dr Banks told me 80% he could remove all pain. Surgery was a complete success. I found him very personable Whatever I asked him , or his staff for. I got. Complete professional. I have such a small incision on my back. I find it amazing that he could do anything for me.. Surgery, and home the same day.
in Washington, DC |
My mother had surgery with Dr. Banks recently and have been in pain for over 2 weeks. It took several tries to get an appointment. Dr. Banks was rude and nonchalant when she was finally seen by him. He did not take the time to explain anything and when asked a question his response was short and unconcerned. His has a very uptight disposition. I would not RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYONE!
in Madison, al |
Had neurosurgery with Dr. Banks and am now mostly blind. It is hard to get real information from Dr. Banks, as he is a very casual Dr. and doesn't take the time to explain things really well. I was discharged from the hospital after surgery and re-admitted the next day because I was in such a bad condition.
in Athens AL |
I was barely able to walk because of a rupture disc that was pressing on the nerve. I had extreme pain from that I thought would never end. Finally, after talking to a friend, she recommend that I see her doctor, Dr. Jason Banks. Saw him on a Wednesday & had surgery the next day!! After waking up from surgery I saw immediate relief! My feet hit the ground and I wasn't in that excruciating pain as I was before!! I recommend this man to everyone! Thanks dr.!! ??
