Patient Comments (2)
Houston, TX |
Dr. Harper is excellent neurosurgeon - world renowned. I had laminectomy - ruptured disc. Had obviously thoroughly read my patient info at first meeting - commented, asked good questions Conservative - only does surgery when only or best option to resolve the problems Listens. Answers questions very well - as much detail as patient wants. 5 hospital nurses & 2 MDs said "genius in OR". Not warm/fuzzy; but respectful, attentive, thorough & caring "Warm/fuzzy" people do not go into neurosurgery

I'm sure Dr. Harper is excellent at what he does, though he could not help me. He told me I had severe damage to my spinal cord, and that surgery nor any type of therapy would have the slightest effect. He appeared quite annoyed at my wife's and my questions, giving short and snooty responses. He told me I needed to accept my lot in life and move on. Dr. Robert Harper may be an excellent surgeon, but he is a callous, rude, and condescending man. I would recommend finding a doctor with heart.
