Dr. Camel has god’s healing hands. I was suffering for many months from this awful neck pain which was due to a bad herniated disk. I worked for their practice for number of years and knew who I was going to seek help from. And he delivered. He is so calming and confident and I can’t believe how well I feel 1st day post surgery. He is my hero and I highly recommend him and Stamford ASC to anyone who is seeking care and looking to get rid of the life limiting neck or back pain for good. Thank you Dr. Camel for your guidance and excellent work! Because of you I will be pain free again and can’t wait to get over the post op period to get on with my active life. Jodie Sahota

Dr. Camel doesn't seem to care much about his patients. I went to him after an MRI showed brain hematoma. He never bothered to follow up.

I began to have numbness in both feet after chemotherapy and thought it was related to treatment. After 4 years the numbness began to spread quickly from my feet to my legs and I was soon diagnosed with dropped foot. I visited ONS and after nerve testing was diagnosed with compressed nerve at the L4/L5 vertebrae. I was losing function rapidly. Dr. Camel performed back fusion at the very end of May 2020 during Covid-19 lockdowns with obvious risk to himself and staff at Greenwich Hospital. The surgery was a complete success and I have since been playing 18 holes of golf regularly. If you want to remain physically active I would highly recommend Dr. Camel.

I am worse off after my surgery than I was going in. He was not interested in dealing with a poor result. I would absolutely not recommend Dr. Camel.

I’d been suffering with lower back pain for years, visited countless doctors who insisted I needed far more serious surgery. Dr. Camel was the voice of reason and performed surgery perfectly. I have never felt better.

This note is in continuing appreciation of Dr. Mark Camel’s skills (communication, bedside and surgical). He completely resolved acute, incapacitating pain with a very successful microdiscectomy. He and his team at the surgery center – and all of the team at ONS were extraordinary. From diagnoses, to exploring options, second opinions, the surgery and the recovery were highly professional, suitably quick and a good as new result. Thank you. Vicki S., Naples, FL.

Dr. Camel did the job and I was walking within a week. Takes the time to explain in detail what the issues are and what he's going to do to fix it.

Dr. Camel performed a fusion on my neck 15 years ago. He was diligent and sent me to PT first and did not resort to surgery right away although he told me if that helped it would probably help for about 2 years and I would then in all likelihood need surgery. Almost 2 years to the day I was back and he did the surgery. My entire experience from beginning to end was excellent. I was in unbearable pain prior to the surgery. I have been completely 100% ever since. I am so very thankful.
