Dr Reeves was wonderful in handling my case. From the minute he visited me in the hospital, he knew what I had and what he was going to do. He treated me with respect and was very kind to me. I had just moved to Shreveport from New Orleans and was very nervous about my situation. I knew no one here but my daughter and her family. Dr. John Reeves made me feel at home and was a highly recommended neurosurgeon. His bedside manners are the best. He always kept his cool and reassured me that everything was going to be alright. He made me feel comfortable and took away my worries about my brain surgery. I would definitely recommend Dr. Reeves and his staff (especially his nurse Jamie) to anyone needing neurosurgery. They are the #1 Best Team in the area. Geaux Tigers!!!

Fantastic doctor!! Experienced and friendly staff. I never felt pressured to have surgery and felt like it was ultimately my decision. I made the decision to have my neck surgery and have never regretted choosing Dr Reeves to do it. I am doing whatever I want in my life now with no more pain!!! I am forever grateful!!!!

This was such a great experience. I was very nervous about a surgical consult for my severe back pain. I have seen two previous neurosurgeons about my back pain in town and had horrible experiences with both. Dr. Reeves is very thorough and informative. Explained everything in a manner that I could understand. Actually explained my radiology imaging to me. He made sure I knew that surgery was an option, but not my only option. He didn't "scare" me into surgery like the previous doctors I saw. I had conservative treatment first and then had my back surgery done. I am a completely new person thanks to Dr. Reeves and his incredible staff!!!

Dr. Reeves completed a spinal stenosis surgery at URHCS, Texas. I recovered from that surgery and he fused two (2) disk. Absolutely the best doctor in the world as far as I am concerned. I am having problems now with the exact disc that he said I would. I will call tomorrow and see if I can get the VA to send me to see him in Lousiana.

Dr. Reeves was very professional, his staff was excellent, and unlike other doctors I had seen I felt no pressure to decide on having the spinal fusion surgery. Dr. Reeves didn't try to sway me in either direction. He presented the facts as they were and removed himself from the equation so I could make an informed decision. They have been responsive with anything I've needed related to anything falling under their area of responsibility. This was by far my best experience with regard to sur

I owe Dr Reeves and his staff a huge amount of gratitude. I had issues that brought me to the ER, and Dr. Reeves happened to be at the hospital that day. He took the time to come talk to me and I GENUINELY felt like he truly cared about me getting better quickly. He operated on me the next day, and it was a SATURDAY. After the surgery, he checked on me OFTEN and was truly a pleasant doctor to work with. Basically, he came across as more of friend than a doc.. GREAT GUY and great staff!

I would NOT recommend Dr. Reeves to family or friends. I have had an infection that was not treated by Dr. Reeves, but was blamed on an allergic reaction to a specific surgical device. I have had recurring issues and he has had no interest in being proactive in helping treat my problems long term. I have now switched doctors in the DFW area.

Dr Reeves operated on me and tore me apart. The man shouldn't be allowed to operate.
