I can't say enough good things about Dr. Hajjar. My boyfriend had a massive brain aneurysm in October and this man is literally our guardian angel. He has made an amazing recovery and I truly believe that it is because of the care he received from Dr. Hajjar. I will always have a very special place in my heart for him and would definitely recommend him to anyone.

I am very pleased with Dr. Hajjar. He did my cervical fusion in 2013 and I have remained pain free. Dr. Hajjar also performed a two level lumbar fusion with great results. Because of Dr. Hajjar I am enjoying my busy lifestyle. I would and have recommended Dr. Hajjar to many of my friends.

Dr Hajjar is an excellent surgeon. He has done two back surgeries on me in the last 7 years because of disc herniations at different levels in my back. Dr Hajjar explained my films to me well and has always answered all of my questions. I haven't had any problems since, and am pain. I would and have recommended Dr Hajjar to family members for neck or back problems, and he did brain surgery on a close friend for a tumor and they have done very well since. He is a very thorough doctor.

I was referred to Dr Hajjar in 2010. He fused my back and I have been living in pain for that long, My hip feeling like I was hit by a sledge hammer most of the time, but it was my back he fused, except that he carved off a piece of bone off my hip to graft onto my back, he says. Well anyway I've never got the 600 pound gorilla off my back for seven years. Oh and by the time he figured out I needed therapy, I had been off work long enough that my insurance ran out. Oh well, too bad!

He is an excellent surgeon. He operated on my neck twice with great results both times. He does move quickly but answers your questions and makes sure that he meets your needs.
