I must say I had a very unplanned trip to the emergency room end of Jan 2017. The Dr found a large 12MM aneurism. I was transported to Scottsdale Brain ICU where I met with Dr Wamego the following day to speak with under going major brain surgery. To be perfectly honest I was so scared. Dr. Wanebo assured me I was in good hands and boy was he is right. He not only saved my life but successfully completed a 9 hour surgery with zero complications. I am over the moon. Thank you so much .Melanie

Dr Wanebo is an excellent and caring surgeon and Julie and Teri who take care of the office are the very best.

I have not had my surgery yet. I scheduled my appointment and about two weeks before they called to fit me in sooner. He was very patient with questions and explained everything in detail. I am very impressed so far. Surgery is in a week

I have not yet had my surgery but so far I'm extremely impressed with Dr. Wanabo and his staff. The staff is efficient and knowledgeable as well as pleasant. Dr. Wanabo exudes confidence and professionalism and took as much time with me as I needed to understand the L4/L5 fusion procedure I'm having. I know I am in good hands. I'm not the least bit surprised to see the reviews here are 100% positive.

Dr. Wanebo gave my husband hope, human kindness & extended time with us after another doctor told us to go home & enjoy what life he had remaining, essentially writing him off. Dr Wanebo's expert skills, compassion & knowledge truly make him the epitome of what a physician should be. We are forever grateful.
