My experience with Dr. Komotar was very brief. Even though a review was entered here on Healthgrades on my behalf by a rep., quoting me saying something I didn't, I did not spend enough time w/ him to form an adequate, well-rounded opinion of my own. But, this is actually a fortunate story because our brief encounter, about 3 minutes after he reviewed the MRI, was because my condition is benign & does not require the use his skill set. That said, based on the recommendations & high opinions of others whom I DO know well & whose opinions matter to me, I trust that he IS the go-to guy for neurosurgery, should I ever need it. So I AM glad I got the opportunity to enter his practice as a patient when I did, in case my condition worsens. I only have an issue with the compulsory system they use to gather the opinions of their patients following the consultation. Dr. K's rich background & solid reputation CAN speak for themselves. Likewise, trust us with our own genuine feedback.
