What People Say About Dr. Mark Linskey, MD

Dr. Linskey is THE doctor you want to go to for brain metastasized cancer. Every other hospital/doctor we went to recommended WHOLE BRAIN radiation (WBR) if you have 7+ brain tumors, when WBR is known to cause neuropathy of healthy brain. Dr. Linskey & team will do targeted gammaknife treatments to minimize damage to healthy brain tissue. He explains fully and will recommend the best combo of aggressive and risk minimizing treatment options. Mom expected to live 6 months, now almost 8 years.

Dr. Linskey botched my wife's surgery but didn't want to admit to it. He kept giving us false hopes that my wife will get better but it's been over a year and she never did. I wish we never relied in his reviews and I wish we never met him.

Dr.Linskey has too aggressive approach! Now I have very serious complications and they are permanent. Ugh! Look for a different neurosurgeon!

Unfortunately, my experience was horrible with dr. Linskey. He ruined my life and my health. I was a healthy and active mom of two boys, but now after my transsphenoidal surgery that he performed, I became a disabled person. Right after the surgery, I developed a life-threatening complication and it looks like I will be dealing with it for the rest of my life. Every single day for 6 months I am struggling feeling dizzy, nauseous, fainting. I can't even leave my house! Dr. Linskey doesn't care!

I told Dr Linskey at my post op that he’s a genius and he just laughed and said No I’m not, I’m an ordinary man. I literally adore this man. He has saved my life. He always explained things very carefully and in detail to me. He spent a fair amount of time in my pre-op explaining every single aspect of my surgery and my recovery expectations. I am happy and at peace and I am in remission. I will never forget Dr Linskey - he is a Neursosurgeon who helps people!!!

Dr. Linskey performed MVD cranial surgery on me in 2008 and Gamma knife in 2013. He is consulting on something else for me. He is at the top of his profession. He's connected all over the world. Technically excellent and very patient-oriented. You feel he's fighting for you because he is. He saved my life. His patients more than respect him, they love him.

Dr. Mark Linsey is a wonderful physician. He performed MVD surgery for me in 2007. The surgery was successful and he gave me my life back. Immediately following the surgery, my Trigeminal Neuralgia pain disappeared. I would highly recommend him to anyone suffering from Trigeminal Neuralgia. He is an expert in the field.

Dr. Linskey is a world-class surgeon, his neurosurgical procedure (MVD) completely cured me of trigeminal neuralgia. His skill level is of the highest order, and after 8 years of chronic pain, I'm happy to be pain free. He treated me with respect and kindness, his staff were friendly and professional. I highly recommend Dr. Linskey to anyone suffering from trigeminal neuralgia.
