Patient Comments (4)
in Oakton, VA |
After trying everything, including accupuncture, swimming, yoga, and physical therapy to ease my pain, I finally made an appointment with Dr. Hasz, who had been recommended to me. He immediately diagnosed a back condition that was not going to improve with any of the interventions I had tried, instead recommending disc replacement and straightening my back. It was immediate relief post-surgery (other than the recovery from surgery).
in Centreville, VA |
I am a 77 year old woman who recently had spinal surgery. I was hesitant about having surgery because of my age and I was worried about spinal complications. Due to terrible chronic pain and Dr. Hasz's opinion, I chose to undergo two surgeries in a four day period. One of these surgeries was an actual spinal fusion. While in the hospital, Dr. Hasz was very attentive and his staff and my care was first rate. My follow up care has been equally as good and I have had an excellent result.
in Gainesville, VA |
Dr. Hasz uses physician assistants to deal with patient questions you would expect your surgeon to perform. He did accurately diagnose my need for a revision of prior spine fusion and his surgical skills are excellent on procedures he knows. However, he will not discuss any options which a patient has researched which disagree with his vision of the perfect solution. He is arrogant and unwilling to let the patient participate in the decision process. I would never recommend him to others.
in Vienna, VA |
He's brilliant. He presented everything to me in such a way that I understood my options, but clearly the decision was mine how to proceed. I had been in such pain for so long that I wanted the maximum surgery. Knowing all the risks and long recovery involved I really put my faith in him. I am so glad I did.
