What People Say About Dr. Michael Kasten, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
I had an excellent experience. Both of my surgeries went very well. I am finally walking upright and my pain is much relieved from that I experienced prior to surgery. Dr. Kasten explained everything he was going to do and why. He answered all of my questions prior to surgery and made no promises that things would be perfect but assured me that he felt he could help me and he did.

He didn't listen to my symptoms or concerns about them. Talked over me when I tried to ask questions. Told me that I will be in pain for the rest of my life and there is nothing he could do about it. I had significant changes in symptoms but he said it wasn't important that my back pain went from 1-2 to 7 on a near daily basis.
