I’ve been going to him for a bit now. He is an awesome dr. I would definitely say he is very considerate, super understanding and listens to your concerns too. Dr. Banks definitely wants what’s best for his patients and I trust him with what he has to say. Recently recommended I talk with a neurosurgeon and I was a bit hesitant about that but took time to think about that rec and will be meeting with one to discuss other options, but I know I can ask his opinion if what neurosurgeon has to say.

After years with debilitating and misdiagnosed lower back pain, Dr Banks was able to look at my MRI and knew exactly what to do in order for me to function and keep my job. He and his assistant were technical geniuses during my epidural. It was like the perfect touch down. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I have been his Patient over 6 years now. I just love him! he is hands down the best md I have had to see. I can't say enough how much i love this man! I now have him treating not only my chronic conditions but that of my mom & soon my dad. if you have any type of back pain, go see him. He is gentle and considerate, yet talks to you like a human. I trust Dr. Banks with my life.The only downside is his staff. they are not very considerate or understanding. But Dr. Banks makes it worth it.
