I was having numbness and pain in my legs but was afraid of having back surgery. Dr. McNulty was excellent in convincing me of the need for surgery. The surgery went great and now there is no pain or numbness. He is a wonderful doctor and I would recommend him highly.

Very rude staff. I was instructed to arrive to the office 30 minutes early to complete initial paperwork. I arrived 30 minutes early as It was requested and "Claudia" (doctor McNulty's assistant) told me I have to reschedule as I suppose to be at least 45 min earlier! Claudia was very rude and told me that they call to confirm this (I have the message when they call me requesting to be 30 min. claudia informed me I couldn't see the doctor as he had to go home at 6. I will look for another dr

Rude, uncompassionate person with no business feeling with people.

After an ATV accident broke my neck in two places, and no other surgeon wanted to operate on me, Dr. McNulty spent 12 hours operating and did a wonderful job. It is 16 years later and I'm still problem-free, all things considered.
Las Vegas, NV |
He is a very straightforward, tell you like it is doctor. He diagnosed my problem, performed surgery and has me on the way to a full recovery after years of seeing many other physicians with no results.
in Las Vegas, NV |
Extremely rude. Bad bedside manner. Spoke to me about treatment as if I were buying a car. Didn't seem to care about me as a patient at all just more about me being a dollar sign. Talking about how much he's going to get from my insurance. He entered the room I said hi and he said hey walked out and slammed the door only to make a hotel reservation outside. He should've never had the call on speaker. Do not go to him.

A man with bad attitude, rude, bad ethics. A bad experience with him.
in Las Vegas, NV |
Egotistical and does not listen to what you have to say. He had the gall to tell me that I was not feeling the symptoms that I have been experiencing for the past year. I was sent to him as a referral for surgical consultation and he totally disregarded the doctor notes that were sent to him for the referral. He stated that he did not have the records which was totally false because I verified with the staff prior to seeing him for initial consultation. Needless to say, NO TRUST THERE FOR ME

Found Dr McNulty to be very direct,he explained procedure so I understood. I appreciated his business like approach.

Dr. Patrick McNulty is absolutely the best spine doctor in the world. Prior to meeting him 15 years ago I had been in pain with my back for years even having surgery to repair discs two years prior with another surgeon. Dr. McNulty performed a fusion to my lower back which has been good ever since. Due to degenerative disc disease I have kept in touch and in 2015 he determined that my cervical spine now needed surgery. As I told him if he said that was what I needed then I trusted him and let?s

My first encounter with Dr. McNulty M.D He gave me some important info on does and don'ts. My first surgery was July 27th,2015......for 7 hours of surgery in where he removed 3 disc (C2-C4) that were laying up against my spin and causing paralysis to my complete body. July 29th, 2015 I was back in surgery for 7 more hours to rebuild my entire neck.........I was then in ICU for 25 days on a ventilator in drug induced coma. 8 months later I'm coming all the way back. He is a miracle worker.
in Boulder City, NV |
Dr. McNulty Is Incredibly GOOD! I was not able to stand or walk for more than 2-3 minutes at a time and after my back surgery he did ..I'm able to walk and walk and walk. He Is AMAZING!! IF you are fortunate enough to have the opportunity for him to operate on your back..JUMP at the chance and follow his instructions completely. His entire team is as good as he is..THE BEST!
Las Vegas, NV |
BEST Orthopedic Surgeon in the entire country. In my case he said I was NOT a candidate for Back Surgery, thereby gaining my trust, because 90% of Drs will do extra procedures, thus TRIPLING their income.This Dr will only recommend what is ?best? in your case, because he is a top-notch Surgeon, his time is extremely valuable, and spent with surgery on patients that truly need surgery. Underneath his cold, efficient, no-nonsense attitude is a very charming, warm, and highly dedicated Surgeon.
Las Vegas, NV |
He does not inform the patient the type of surgery nor complications from a surgery.
