What People Say About Dr. Jeffrey Wade, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr Wade performed a lumber laminectomy for my herniated disc in 2014 (it is now 2019). The pain was awful before surgery. After about a month recovering from surgery I have been pretty much pain free. Only very rare mild back pain now and then that is easily relieved with Ibuprofen. If I could give Dr Wade more than 5 stars I would. I would give him 10 stars

I saw Dr Wade for tailbone pain. He was professional, kind, and listened to all of my questions/concerns. He was able to see me the day after I called to make an appointment, and I did not have to wait long in his office at all. His staff was caring and friendly. He seemed to really care about getting to the root cause of my pain. I would definitely recommend Dr Wade!!

Dr Wad is a very good surgeon, and has pleasant bedside manner, however if you have problems beyond the one followup visit...and your problem cannot be solved by cutting, he and his personal medical staff, shuffle you off to a partner, and do not want to hear from you again or offer advice for any further treatment . You are on your own to find second opinions or options. One year out from back surgery, i have more pain than before the surgery...if you need back surgery , go to a neuro!

Dr. Wade is a very thorough provider of care. His staff is nice, but his nurse and 1 desk clerk is rude and made me feel as if I was being untruthful. Dr. Wade advised that my husband should be off for a few days after his procedure(scheduled 1 week after his office visit). Stopped to get extended excuse but nurse had clerk tell me they only write excuses for day of procedure. Advised clerk of what Dr. Wade said and she told me that she was relaying message from nurse. Both were RUDE, RUDE..

Dr. Wade was great! I lived with the pain in my low back and leg for ten years. During this time I lived in Dallas, TX and Atlanta, GA, both big cities, both with great surgeons. Not until I moved to Birmingham, AL and met Dr. Jeff Wade........had I trusted anyone enough to perform the surgery, the surgery that I had desperately needed for at least 3 years. Thanks to Jeff and the surgery I actually was able to enjoy life again.

This review is based on my experience at least 10 years ago. I went to Dr. Wade about neck pain. He told me I needed surgery (bulging disk) immediately. Someone from my workplace urged me to learn everything I could about surgery for bulging disks before committing to surgery. I'm so glad I didn't have the surgery! I have seen several neurosurgeons (I broke my neck in an auto accident a few years ago) who have told me that fewer than 10% of patients with bulging disks benefit from surger

Dr Wade performed minimally invasive laminectomy. My diagnosis was spinal stenosis. No more pain or numbness in my right leg. 100% relief. Thank you Dr Wade and the surgery team! Great Job!

I developed Bronchitis the week prior to surgery and called his office. Hours later, I received a call from Larry the Physician's Assistance and was told to suppress it until day of surgery. I was coughing so hard I knew I would be popping stitches if I had surgery. The next day I received a call, was told surgery would have to be cancelled. I faxed letter from PCP. They refused to return my calls after that point. I gave up. I never ever asked for ANY pain medication. Just dumped.

Dr Wade was the answer to my extreme back pain. I couldn't get anyone to listen. I got blown off so many times. The moment I awoke from surgery I could tell my back pain was greatly improved. I've already recommended him numerous times

Dr. Wade is an OUTSTANDING Dr! He has a genuine concern for his patients, a great bed side manner and gets the job done! I had an issue with my neck. Surgery was my only option. I could immediately feel MAJOR improvement in the recovery room! Dr. Wade promptly spoke with my family afterward and then came by to check on me a couple hours later. I cannot say enough positive things about this Dr.!! The Bham area is fortunate to have him!
