      I would recommend Doctor Sampath to anyone with lumbar/cervical issues. I have been a patient since 2008 and have had three spinal fusions. 2 cervical and one lumbar and I am only 39 years old. I just got out of surgery yesterday at 5:00 Pm and was released home this morning at 9:30 am. I am feeling great with minimum pain and discomfort. Doctor Sampath answered every question I had and made sure I was informed of all options and possible outcomes. Staff was amazing with scheduling everything

      Not a good experience they thought i just wanted pain medications but the surgery failed and damaged my vagus nerve i know all surgeries come with risk that is not my complaint they never really did anything but give me morphine and percoucet dilaudin for years 8 or more years and 2 injections he is just worried about his bussiness more than his patients my nervous system is out of wack i lost 50 pounds now i have to deal with with this it ruined my life
      in fall river, ma |
      I think as a surgeon he is easily a 5 star surgeon but his bedside manner has a lot to be desired!!!! Its almost as if he really isnt listening when you talk to him, but like he has already made his mind up as to what his plan of action for you is and no matter what you say it isn't going to change.I just wish he would listen more.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
