I have been under Dr. Passias care for 2 years. He is consistently, kind, compassionate, caring,patient and empathetic to me. I do not feel rushed during evaluations. He is a great spine expert and helps me greatly. My family and I love him and his great office and support staff. We recommend him for his excellent care before, during and post surgery. Thanks so much Dr. Passias. You are one of the best doctors. We need more like you.

Met with his assistant, she was very thorough about my issues, called my doctors for my files and took care of the paper work needed for my MRI. Will be meeting with Dr. Passias on the next appointment, based on my experience with his assistant, I would recommend this Doctor.

I recently had a cervical surgery and Dr. Pasias was my attending doctor. From the start he made me feel very comfortable with all the detailed explanation of the procedure and his care was exceptional. He is very kind and professional.

Dr. Passias was chosen by me for an extensive four disc fusion with lamenectomy C3-C7, after I had seen a dozen doctors before him. He is a knowledgeable, modern, and up to date spine specialist. I highly recommend you see for yourself.

From the onset Dr Passias was and still is a person dedicated to his profession. You become his number one priority. The detailed information in answering questions is outstanding. Needless to say the low back surgery he performed on me has improved the pain and discomfort i had. I continue to see him once or twice a year for a check up and monitor the results.
