What People Say About Dr. Kern Singh, MD

4 years ago my neck pain began. I did rounds and rounds of rehab. Six weeks ago I ended up in the ER with the worst pain imaginable. I contacted Dr. Singh and found out my discs were in horrible shape. He recommended replacement and said I would feel much better after. Well, not only was in an outpatient procedure, but I also didn’t even have a brace. My follow up was today and I rated my pain a zero. For the first time in years I feel confident I can live pain free. Best decision I made. Only regret was not doing it sooner.

Terrible, terrible, terrible. I initially maybe for a week had a little less pain in my leg but than it came back. He is rude, an egomaniac and got into my operation over his head. I now walk all hunched over have pain in my leg, my back and he made me worse. He never would acknowledge that it was a failed surgery, a completely failed scoliosis surgery! Run if you can do not walk from this incompetent individual.

Going into spine surgery, I wish I knew how unbelievable the total disc replacement was. Dr. Singh and Chris has told me that I would feel great afterwards, but I did not know what the outcome would be. I was nervous. I wish that I got the surgery sooner. This procedure went great, and I was amazed with the recover post operation. Dr. Singh did a great job, and I hope that folks who have spine issues can take some comfort in that he knows what he is talking about. This was excellent.

I am so very grateful for everything they did and the professionalism! 10 Stars from me!

I would give Dr Singh and his entire medical and surgical staff 20 stars if I could! The pain I was feeling prior to my disc replacement in my neck was unbearable and completely debilitating. I am beyond thankful I was referred to Dr Singh and can say today, 6 weeks post surgery I am pain free and have a new outlook on life! Thank you cannot express my gratitude for getting my life back! Dr Singh is the best of the best and his staff are amazing and supported me along this journey.

Dr Singh works on behalf of workman’s compensation insurance companies to deny claims. In 2 minutes, sans eye contact, he undermines the diagnosis and orders made by Drs more qualified than he, who have treated the patient for 2 years. He clears a patient, who has been classified completely permanently disabled, as per SSDI, to return to a labor intensive job and claims their condition is not the result of a job injury witnessed by several people. It's all about the money for him.

Dr. Singh helped relieve my cervical stenosis with a disc replacement surgery. His entire team put my, and my family’s, mind at ease through the entire process. I couldn’t have asked for better care through out every step of the way, especially the day of surgery itself.

I am extremely happy with the surgery that Dr Singh performed on me. I was very hesitant to have the surgery (disc replacement in my neck), but it was the best thing I could have done! I am 3 months post-op and have been cleared with no restrictions. I couldn’t be happier.

Dr. Singh will give you your life back, like he did to me. The quality of my life before I met Dr. Singh was terrible. I was in unbelievable pain. I consulted two other surgeons and I trusted Dr. Singh instantly. While I certainly appreciated his genuineness and warm character, it was obvious upon meeting him that he is a master surgeon, utilizing only the latest, cutting edge technology. Don't bother looking for any one else. You've found him. My pain-free life post-surgery is living proof.
