Dr. Staats made a quick examination. Apparently he had been briefed by the referring doctor and knew ahead of time what was needed. Several days later he had me go to the Surgery Center where he performed a procedure to block pain in my back. The procedure took only a few minutes but the pain has bee greatly reduced. For this I cannot thank Dr. Staats enough. Yes, I would recommend this doctor. I will have to see how long this procedure hold up.

Dr Staats is the best. I just found out that Dr Staats will not be seeing patients anymore ?? or doing procedures Dr Staats please come back you were the only Dr that I trusted to treat me and do the injection on my neck and back. I will miss not having you as my Dr. I wish you the best and hope you come back even if it's just for procedures. Dr Staats is the best dr you can have. I would even travel out of state just to have him treat me that's how much faith and trust I have in him.

Dr. Staats appeared to be a good doctor that was SUPPOSED to give me a Stim Implant, However he did not like the way my insurance paid out so I was called to say he no longer wants to accept my insurance. He IS still contracted with my insurance, he IS still listed on the Physician List and WAS paid IN NETWORK for my visit. Because of this my care is being held up as there are very few doctors who do this. He should have cancelled the contract with the insurance instead of turn away patient

Amazingly caring. He diagnosed me with a neurological condition within minutes while my neurologist was still unsure what to treat me for. I absolutely trust him. He takes his time to listen and to also answers my questions.

I had a rare condition and he spent a great deal of political capital at Hopkins to get the Neurosurgery Department to do the needed surgery. It took almost a year and his diagnosis was correct and their wrong. Then later he took on my fibromyalgia and with a cocktail of drugs, I've been 12 years with only minor symptoms. I owe him a great deal, now 75 and still running a company.
