Patient Comments (10)
I had pain from a no disc on l5 s1, I had moderate stenosis and retrolylisis. I had a spinal fusion l4 to s1. I had not been able to sleep through a night for over a year because of the pain. Dr Sampath and his assistant Emmy and the Staff were awesome. Highly recommend. I have never had doctors go into detail explaining my condition like they did.

I have recomended Dr Sampath to quite a few people. He has been my Dr since 2004. I have had several surgeries with great success. I wouldn't be walking today if not for his skill

I have been a patient of Dr Sampath's since 2002 and i would not trust anyone else for neuro-surgery. Dr Sampath is an outstanding surgeon and individual. His office staff is top-notch and goes out of their way to take care of the patient.

Had surgery c5-c6 cervical fusion and as soon as I woke up after surgery the pain radiating down my arm was gone. Dr. Sampath explain the surgical procedure throughly and advised me of the risks involved. His whole staff was amazing from beginning to end. I couldn't be happier with the way I was treated.

Actually took the time to explain what was going on. Explained in detail what the surgical procedure would involve. Never felt rushed while in the office! On the day of surgery, spent quite some time with family and answered all of their questions!

I am a young mom with 2 very active boysI run a business with my husband. I was referred to Dr Sampath by a neurosurgeon who had performed a laminectomy six years ago. Dr Sampath took the time to get me right into his office so we could discuss what was going on and how long. He was the first person to show and explain my MRI! He diagnosed me with degenerative disc disease and was right to the point. I can't thank him enough! The fusion worked 3 weeks out I'm feeling my legs! THANK YOU ??

I would give 0. He botched my mother in laws back surgery. She's completely disabled and its his fault. He also refused to see her after. Don't go to him! He's a hack
