Dr. Doyle is very responsible and knowledgeable surgeon. I had a mass in my spinal canal which was pinching my nerves in my spinal sac causing pain in my lower back and tail bone. After looking into my MRI he didn't push me for immediate surgery like other surgeons does. He checked my reflexes very well and gave me very good advise. Only thing is that he is a straight forward guy and explains the situation very clearly and confidently with great knowledge. I would definitely recommend him .

Saw Dr. Doyle in 2006 for cervical fusion. Yes, he wasn't talkative and sometimes there were long waits but having worked for surgeons before, I know the best are always being called on for emergency consults/surgeries. And if i want to talk, I'll call a friend. It has been 11 years since my surgery and I have had zero problems since. I am now in need of repair on the other end of my spine and Dr Doyle is my only choice for this surgery.
My appointment was changed three times Fourth time he 90 minutes late. Staff were rude - watched them eat lunch at front window. Saw him for 5 minutes (max) barely got a question out and told I needed surgery His secretary talk to me more than he did Scheduled surgery (my mistake), required to pay ALL costs upfront (over $1200) No payment plan. Still in pain after surgery Was told at follow up that I would probably still have pain. Offered to operate again. NO once is enough

Horrible bedside manner! Didn't even listen to me and I have two bulging desk yet he told me I only had whiplash! It was a waste of time and money to go see him and he has the nerve to even be late for his appointments! Upon checking in, his front desk staff was literally eating at the sign in desk. When I tried to check in the nurse kept speaking to me with a mouthful of food as she kept stuffing more and more in her mouth. I will never go back.

While he appears to be a competent surgeon, he sorely lacks in time managament. I have tried to be patient dealing with over hour wait times in his office, being late for my surgery, and changing my appointment times last minute. But today, I was pushed over the edge. I had to reschedule my follow up appointment after waiting about a hour with no doctor in sight and this was after he rescheduled me this morning. Completely unexceptable.

Dr. Doyle was ok. I had heard he had no bedside manner. I was assigned to him even though I wanted a Different Dr. but the Dr. I ask for wasn't on call for the ER he was. I still have problems and now he says I need neck surgery too! I wonder if he is one of those Dr that keep you having surgery just to keep you coming in...
