What People Say About Dr. Mario Brkaric, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I went to Dr. Brkaric for my 4th cervical fusion. Upon first introduction he was brief and slightly curt although professional. He reviewed my MRI and X-Rays and explained exactly what the problem was and confidently stated that he could correct it. After the surgery I felt immediate relief, the pain and other symptoms were gone. I am now healthy proof of Dr. Brkaric's skill and knowledge as a surgeon and after getting to know him he is not only a good doc, but I would consider him a friend.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! I had lower back surgery. He gets right to the point and explains everything thoroughly. Shows you your MRI or x rays and shows you what needs to be done and what to expect. He's the BEST!!!

There is not enough words to explain how great Dr. Brkaric is. For a doctor he gets down to the point and explains everything to you so you know exactly what to expect. My surgery (on my back) went very well and I was walking the next day. He made sure that I was ok and comfortable in the hospital. I ran into a problem with my shoulder a couple of weeks later and he was genuinely concerned about it. Got me into a Mri quickly. I wouldn't go to any other doctor,

Dr. Brkaric takes the necessary time to listen to his patients concerns, explain diagnostics, and treatment recommendations. He tries to treat conservatively in the beginning and only recommends surgery if other non-invasive methods are unsuccessful. He is a skilled surgeon and has performed two spinal fusions for me. His bedside manner and follow up care are second to none. I recommend him to others without hesitation.

Dr. Brkaric has performed two surgical procedures on me that have been very successful. I have recommended Dr. Brkaric to many of my friends and family members and will continue to do so. I find Dr. Brkaric to be very professional, yet a real person.
