I was very impressed with Dr Shibayama and would recommend him to all of my friends and family
in Rockvale, TN |
HIGHLY RECOMMEND! HE IS THE BEST!!!!. Dr.Shibayama is not quick to do surgery. He diagnoses the problem first and tries all recourses before surgery. He is very open, honest, makes sure you fully understand what is going on. He has great bedside manners, never rushes you during office visits & unlike some Dr's, he listens to the patient & cares about them & their well being. He personally calls his patients post-op to check on them several times. Always very accessible & great staff. Love him.

I was a patient that Dr. Shibayama performed a microdiscectomy L5-S1 in December of 2016 . Woke up with complete relief from pain that I had endured for over a year. Completely back to normal living, with no pain.

Knowledgable, took time to explain process and procedure in a clear and concise manner. Definitely would recommend to family and friends

About 2 years ago I started having back pain and numbness down my right leg. I was scared to death. I went and saw Dr. Shibayama and the first thing I told him was I will not have back surgery. I tried 2 ESI's and they did not work. So I decided to go ahead and have back surgery. I am so glad I did. With my back surgery I only missed one week of work and then I worked half days the next week. I am very active and I feel great. Dr. Shibayama is a wonder doctor. I highly recommend him.

I work in neuromonitoring and am in the OR with many spine surgeons. Dr. Shibayama is BY FAR the best surgeon I have ever worked with. He is technically superb and performs his surgeries very thoroughly and in much less time than other surgeons. He is the only surgeon that I know who does minimally invasive surgery very well. He always treats the OR staff with the utmost respect and he is impeccably professional. He prays with all his patients before surgery. I would highly recommend him!

I would recommend (and have) Dr. Shibayama to anyone with spine issues. I had an old injury to the lumbar spine that required surgery - after recovering, I was better than I had been in years and able to walk and exercise again. Then several months later, while exercising, I had another injury only this time in the cervical spine. Outpatient surgery had me back up and running in just a couple of weeks. He was recommended by my chiropractor - something that is rarely done!
Nashville, TN |
I wouldn't recommend anyone else. (By the way, he has nice teeth!!!)

Dr. Shibayama has been a godsend to me. I was diagnosed with a herniated disc and sciatica. I was in so much pain when I had my first visit. He reassured me that he was going to help me, and he did. I had 2 epidural injections and when that didn't alleviate my pain, I had surgery. I am happy to say that I am pain free now and owe that to Dr. Shibayama. He is the best! I recommend him to anyone suffering with back pain. He is very compassionate and will take very good care of you.
