I was referred to Dr. Hadley after bring diagnosed with ependymoma on my spine, lumbar L4 area. I was told the tumor was benign but after operating Dr Hadley discovered it was malignant. He removed the tumor 3/1998. I went back for follow up after surgery and thru MRI it was revealed he had moved all of the tumor, thank GOD..it's been since 4/1998 for my surgery and experience with this doctor!! He is EXCELLENT...I recommend him!!!! Vickie D. Fox Spine Surgery.........3/1998

Dr. Hadley was wonderful!!! I was referred to him from a neurologist that had diagnosed me with what he thought was a tumor on my spine. After Dr. Hadley's first review of my MRI, he thought my problem was a disc fragmentation. He reassured me that whatever the problem, he would be able to help me. My brother had seen Dr. Hadley and he did successful surgery on his back. My recovery has been so easy. Surgery on Tuesday, out of the hospital on Wednesday, out to eat on Wednesday night!

Before finding Dr. Hadley, I was in constant pain. I could only walk for exercise. Six months after having an Anterior Cervical Disk Fusion, I am running 2 miles a day and walking 2 miles a day. I am able to lift weights again and I have lost 25 pounds. I am grateful to Dr. Hadley and his excellent team for giving me a life again. Everyone I came into contact with from the first evaluation to the post op appointment was pleasant and professional. I had to stay overnight at UAB and the serv

I am a veteran being treated at the. Birmingham VA hospital. Dr. Hadley spends some of his time at the VA I saw him for a severe pain in my neck. I have never in my life been treated by anyone the way he treated me. He would not review my MRI report. He told me that nothing wrong with my neck. When my caregiver tried to ask questions and appease him of my other issues, he told us to get out and leave. I have filed a professional complaint against him and would NOT recommend anyone to him.

Dr. Hadley operated on my lumbar back performing 3 fusions and bracing in March of 2016. Prior to my consultation and eventual surgery with Dr. Hadley, I had 4 prior surgeries over a 20+ year period with only temporary relief. My problem was more severe than either of 2 Drs. willing to take on, involving severe general & femoral stenosis and mid-aligned vertebra. Dr. Hadley now has me pain free for the first time in over 20 years! Thank you so much Dr. Hadley for improving my quality of life!

He's not eager to do surgery. He will tell you if he believes there are other options to surgery. Another top rated neuro surgeon was prepared to do surgery but was offended when we asked questions. He did admit that the surgery wouldn't resolve the problem. Went to Doctor Hadley and he gave other alternatives. I took my mother and my son to him. He could have performed surgery for the money but he didn't. He gave honest assessments.
in Odenville, AL |
I would highly recommend Dr. Hadley. I had heard that he was the best, and I was not disappointed. He explained how he could help me in terms that I could understand and patiently addressed any questions and concerns that I had. He is a good Christian man and not only a highly skilled surgeon, but also, a kind and caring person. I am three months out of a two level back fusion and doing well thanks to Dr. Hadley and his staff.
in Northport, AL |
Dr Hadley looked at my MRI and told me he could help. That was good news to me after having suffered for years with low back pain, surviving on pain pills and nerve blocks. Now 3 weeks past surgery, I am pain free, able to walk and stand free of pain. Dr. Hadley gave me his card with his personal cell and told me to call him, if I needed him. WOW!! Dr Hadley shoots straight and that is what I like. Great doctor and great staff. I feel that I have a friend in the health care business.
in Tuscaloosa, AL |
I had a three month wait to see Dr. Hadley but it was well worth it. Dr. Hadley is extremely intelligent, compassionate, caring person and a truly outstanding doctor. He took the time explain my diagnosis and tell me his opinion of what was the best action to help me. Honestly, what a wonderful thing to have a doctor who actually cares about my well-being, and takes the time to explain his thinking. I count myself truly blessed to have him as my doctor.
in Birmingham, AL |
Excellent Surgeon. His Resident Dr. Anderson and Nurse Practitioner Linda Davis were all amazing!! I would highly recommend to anyone suffering long term severe back pain. Amazing treatment and care.
