    Dover, DE |
    I felt like Dr. Theodore addressed my condition very thouroughly. His approach was conservative and I felt very comfortable with his recommendations. He put me at ease and was very reassuring. I saw him at Johns Hopkins Neurosurgery in Baltimore, MD though-not in AZ.
    in Queen Creek, AZ |
    Rude, condescending, un-compassionate to say the least. Says he wouldn't do the surgery if I didn't think I could help you, and then the surgery doesn't help. Then says let's do a fusion - I wouldn't do a fusion if I didn't think it would help you. Trust him - no way.
    in Avondale, AZ |
    I have neurofibromatosis, a condition that has no real treatment and back in May of 2015 I was hospitalized with a tumor that cover my 1-4th vertebrae. By the time I went into the NICU for surgery I had already lost the ability to walk and use my hands and arms. I was resigned with the possibility that I would be a quadriplegic, but at St. Josephs, Dr Theodore performed surgery and I've recovered and am ability to do the things I thought I'd never be able to do again.
    in Chandler, AZ |
    Would not want to go to any other neuro surgeon. He's the best in every way: before, during and after surgery.
