I was dealing with lower back pain for awhile and realized time wasn't going to do the trick, so I reached out to Dr. Prasarn after seeing his lower back pain exercise video. He is very knowledgeable and took the time to explain everything so I would fully understand. Following his advice has helped alleviate my lower back pain. A big thank you to Dr. P - I highly recommend him to everyone!

I recently had a spinal fusion performed by Dr. Prasarn. When I woke up from surgery the pain was gone and I felt great. He checked on me multiple times since the surgery. He was kind and also very thorough. His bedside manner was great and he answered all of my questions. I’m always so nervous when it comes to any kind of surgery or even a dentist visit. Dr. Prasarn was great and I felt very relaxed. I would recommend him to anyone!

Dr. Prasarn and his staff were a God send to me. I am a vibrant woman who was strickened with debilitating pain from my hip to my calf. I visited multiple doctors in Houston looking for relief. After 10 months of extensive PT and no improvements, my therapist recommended I see a surgeon. She recommended Dr. Prasarn. After ordering new test, Dr. Parsarn was able to pinpoint the exact problem. He operated to correct the problem. I have been pain free every since. My recovery has been great!

Dr. Prasarn is the best doctor I have ever seen. Explains everything clearly and with compassion for your situation. I was in a terrible amount of pain upon his first exam, but he made sure to take care of all my needs. Being 36 and active, I was a prime candidate for Artificial Disc Replacement (in my cervical spine C5-C6 herniation). Dr.Prasarn and his team moved at light speed to get me into surgery and for my insurance to approve the procedure. His whole team is amazing. GO SEE DR.PRASARN!

Everything about the process from diagnosis, to surgery to follow up was excellent. I didn't think I would be able to run again, and I am pain free and have not felt this good in years. His staff and office are exceptionally run - friendly, caring, but also very efficient. I never had to wait in the waiting room more than 2 minutes and same with once I was back in the patient room. Dr. Prasarn listens to your concerns and addresses them. I really can't say enough great things.

Staff was kind and efficient. Dr. Prasarn took the time to explain processes and treatment with my elderly Mother.
