This is my second spine surgery with Dr Medary Great Nero Surgeon. He explain the procedure very simple and clear for me to understand. He made me feel comfortable before and on the day of surgery. I highly recommend Dr Medary to anyone who is looking for a Skilled, exceptional and professional Nero Surgeon in Central Florida. Thank you Dr Madary for giving me back the quality of life that I deserve.

I had fusion surgery of the C6/C7 on August 27th 2020. Dr. Medary explained the surgery and it went as planned. I was nervous about spine surgery but the recovery was very easy. I had a sore throat for about a week and my throat was swollen for about the same time. The swelling came down and I have a small scar in the crease of my neck which I think should fade and be unnoticed. Dr. Medary is a direct person and I found his demeanor to be honest and to the point. Everything he said would happen, happened. I would highly recommend his skill set. I have an appointment for my follow up xray in October.

I am so thankful to you and your staff for enabling my ability to walk normally again, importantly, without pain. This is one of those things you do not really appreciate until it is lost. For just under eight years I had lived with a crippling sharp pain to the right side of my right knee (as if an icepick were jabbed in it), along with lower back pain. During this time, I had to use either a cane or walker to move about. Three Orthopedic Surgeons & two Neurologists, involving a total of seven surgeries, were of no help. Then I was referred to you and you immediately diagnosed my problem and surgically corrected it. I’m am so thankful!

Dr. Medary was very patient, and ask all the right questions. After looking for two years for a doctor that would do a non-evasive procedure to release my back pain. Dr Medary was recommended to me. I’m in my seventies, had four major surgeries on my back, that worked for a short time , and then the breathtaking pain would come back. I will always have some pain , but he was able to take away the breathtaking pain. I’m able to return to my gardening, do my everyday routine with out the breathtaking pain. Thank you Dr. Medary

I expected Dr. Medary to be "matter of fact" and abrupt because friends had warned me of his demeanor. I have no problem with doctors being direct and truthful. HOWEVER, no patient should feel disrespected or be spoken to in a condescending manner. He was rude and sarcastic when answering my questions. I wonder how he would have behaved had he been able to perform surgery on me and therefore receive a hefty fee. He may be a very competent surgeon, but he does not exhibit the qualities of kindness and empathy. Is that asking too much? I think not.

I called Dr. Madery’s office & was given an appointment within a week. I had been diagnosed with spinal stenosis & injections, etc did not give me relief for any length of time. Office was fairly busy but i was checked in quickly by office staff & after a very short wait, I was shown to an examination room. Dr. Madery came in shortly thereafter. I found Dr. Madery to be personable & easy to talk to. He took the time to go over my MRI with me & gave me his evaluation, answered any & all questions that I had. After our discussion, he scheduled me for surgery within two weeks. I had been in considerable pain for quite a while prior to surgery. Post surgery, I could tell an immediate difference. It has been three months since my back surgery & I continue to be pain free. I highly recommend Dr. Madery to anyone with back issues. My only regret is that I did not find out about Dr. Madery sooner. Thanks much, Max.

Dr. Medary performed surgery on me 18 years ago. The only thing it did for me was to make matters worst. I ended up on disability for 6 years trying to recover from his chop job of a surgery he talked me into. When I complained of continuing pain and loss of function he told me to stop being a baby and get out of the wheel chair. I agree with everyone that states that he is condesending, arrogent and has a "God complex". That's to say the least. I would never recommed him to anyone! If I could give him no stars I would!

Dr. Medary gave me my life back as a result of his surgery to remedy my L4-5 disc hernation. I am a competitive ballroom dancer and as a result of his surgery, I was able to win a national championship in American Rhythm for Senior IV Adults (dancers in their 60's.) To me, Dr. Medary is a miracle worker. Before surgery I couldn't walk without pain. I am totally pain free now and stronger than I have been since my 20's. I am forever in his debt, forever.

Dr medary was referred to us by my family primary dr for treatment of a MRI that showed a tumor in my brain. He was very serious and said he would take care of me. He scheduled surgery right away on tuesday. The tumor was found to be glioblastoma grade 4. His attention to me and my family since surgery has been warm and caring and very professional. If the glioblastoma returns I would not hesitate to use him again with out question. AND we were self pay so we could choose any dr.

Dr Medary is one of the best. He recently performed a surgery to take out a larger than golf ball size pituitary tumor and I couldn't be happier. He had explained me the best case scenario as well as the possible risks very clearly and I walked out of the hospital with the best case scenario results. I personally know quite a few doctors in the area and he was recommended by them too and now I know why.

I am a retired physician referred to this doctor by my spouse who is a practicing physician. I totally wasted my time. I agree with the patient that said he was arrogant. I heard him talking to a medical student outside my room saying “this is a total waste of my time but I’ll go through the motions” In walksGod- oh I meanDr. MedaryHe never let me finish asentence and said he did not know whyI was there because there was nothing he could do for me”. I advised my husband not torefer patients here

Dr. Medary performed surgery on my lower back 3 months ago! I am doing great! He was through, answered all my questions and was very responsive to my situation! I had 3 back surgeries 20 years ago by different doctors in a different state. He by far is the best neurosurgeon that I have had. Wonderful Doctor and wonderful results!
