What People Say About Dr. Mukesh Misra, MD

Dr. Misra is the best doctor I have ever had. I would very much recommend him to my friends and family. He really cared about me and took an interest in the pain I felt. He is a very kind human being. I have pain in my lower back and in the beginning he got me physical therapy and that did not help, then he got me some injections about four with no relief. So I had an MRI done after having one two years before and finally he said that he was recommending surgery. Now I am getting surgery in May.

I have been looking for a Dr. that specializes in C-spine surgeries. A couple of Co-workers told me about Dr. Misra. I made an appointment and saw him today 7/27/16. I brought all my CD's and reports with me. To my surprise he had already studied my MRI's and X-rays! He knew all about my neck! He listened to my concerns and he went over all my options. I was impressed. Now I feel like I can make an well informed decision about having surgery again on my neck.

He is upbeat and communicates clearly and effectively. However, the decisions are always in the hand of the patient.

The doctor is well skilled and did an excellent job on my surgery. His bedside manner is rather rushed and explaining things to his patients is limited and hurried. He is a very busy man. But when looking for a surgeon, I wasn't looking for a good conversationalist, I needed a human technician who can get the job done right. The heavy set hispanic woman on staff that deals with meds is simply a miserable person to deal with. Leave your emotions in the car, get past the staff and you'll be ok!
